Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Cake

Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Cake

(9 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup low-fat milk (soy milk works fine)
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries - partially thawed
This is an egg-free coffee cake. It also has the potential to be dairy-free if you opt for soy milk. I found it to be moist and filling with lots of blueberry flavor. I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the wet ingredients for a touch more flavor. I also drizzled on some icing that I made from 3/4 cup powdered sugar, 1 Tablespoon milk and 1 teaspoon vanilla. It's a bit more dense than your average coffee cake, but as far as healthier morning breads go, this one gets a thumbs-up. (This recipe was submitted in 2007. It was tested and photographed in May 2014.)

How To Make A Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Cake

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In medium bowl, combine the two flours, oats, sugar, baking powder and salt.

In a separate smaller bowl, combine soy milk, applesauce and cornstarch.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just moistened. Fold in blueberries.

Spoon batter into a non-stick 8 x 8 baking pan.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes until a toothpick or knife-tip inserted in the center comes out clean (except for maybe a little bit of blue from the berries).

Allow cake to cool at least 10 minutes. Slice into 9 even-sized squares.

Kind of a cross between a coffee cake and a breakfast bar. Each serving has about 150 calories. Enjoy!

These are great. I used old fashioned oats instead of quick cooking oats and it turned out fine. Low in sodium, low in fat. A great addition to any breakfast. Taste was a little bit blander than I would have liked, but it's healthy, so that's what I expected. All in all, definitely give these a try.

These were great. I did not make a cake out of it, instead I put the batter in 12 muffin cups and baked for 15 minutes. The kids liked them.

Very good, and very satisfying. I increased the whole wheat flour compared to AP to make it a little healthier. I also added cinnamon and nutmeg for some extra flavor. Next time I will try brown sugar instead of granulated, but overall, I really liked it- even my health-food hating dad loved it!

Great! But how do you make 1 muffin instead of a large portion?
