Gluten Free Blueberry Oat Breakfast Cake

Gooooooood morning & happy Sunday.

I have accomplished ten hours of sleep two nights in a row, and I feel so rejuvenated! Now that I’m done with my Netflix binge, I have nothing keeping me up at night 😛 It’s going to be eighty degrees today, but I have to glue myself to my desk because of a project I’m working on for Monday. All of you, who dream of starting a blog, will love it (i hope!) But if not, at least I get to make a craft store trip out of it.


Before I get to work, I wanted to blog my gluten free blueberry oat breakfast cake recipe! It was a weekend hit and only lasted 32 hours. My mom, dad, Kyle and I demolished it! It’s easy to make and I have a feeling that it’ll become one of your favorites!

I will also be blogging my cast iron chicken fajitas and gluten free chicken and black bean enchiladas! I’ve been on a cooking roll lately.

In a large bowl, mix together ALL of the ingredients. (fold the blueberries in last)
*2 Packets Gluten Free Blueberry Oatmeal Packets (Brown sugar oatmeal packets are really good mixed in too)
*1/2 Cup Almond Flour
*3/4 Cup All-Purpose Gluten Free Flour
*2 Large Eggs
*1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
*1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
*1/4 Teaspoon Salt
*2 Packets Stevia
*1/4 Cup Honey
*1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
*1 Tablespoon Melted Coconut Oil
*1/2 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk (or skim milk)
*1 1/2 Cup Blueberries
Grease a cake pan with cooking spray and heat the oven to 375 degrees. Pour the batter into the pan and cook the cake for 19-22 minutes. Use the toothpick method to make sure it’s fully cooked!

The icing is optional, but I highly recommend it! Let the cake cook before adding the icing 🙂

1/4 cup light cream cheese, 1 tablespoon honey, 2 tablespoons meringue powder, 1 packet stevia, 1 teaspoon vanilla.

I microwaved the icing for thirty seconds and drizzled it over the top!  
The cake lasted two days. My parents, Kyle, and myself devoured it!
This recipe makes ten slices.

Questions for you?

  1. How do you spend your Friday afternoons?
  2. Do you like a sweet or savory breakfast?

    This looks delicious! I’m going to make it for my parents tomorrow, and I bet they’ll love it! I love all breakfast, sweet, savory sign me up!

    Lots of my Friday afternoons are spent cleaning and doing laundry so its all done before the weekend so I can relax!

    Has your doctor or dietician cleared you to eat oats yet? Mine told me I had to wait SIX months after my celiac diagnosis to even try to incorporate gluten free oats into my diet, because some people who cannot eat gluten also must avoid oats, even GF ones. Just curious – I used to eat oats daily before my diagnosis, and miss them!

      Hi Sara!

      I do not have celiac disease, so maybe it’s different. I’m trying to eat a gluten free diet to reduce swelling and symptoms of endometriosis. I’ve never heard of waiting to eat oats. How come that is?

      • sara jane

        Ohh I see. Sorry, I must have missed the reason you were GF earlier. Good luck – I have a friend with endometriosis and I know she has had a very hard time with it. I don’t think she has tried going GF, so maybe I’ll let her know about that!

    This is by far the best recipe (dessert) I’ve made.

  • Kira

    I bet this would be great with a lemon frosting ?

    Friday is one of my days off so I try to get some cleaning, laundry or meal prep out of the way so I can relax the rest of the weekend.

    Breakfast is best when it’s a combo of sweet and savory. Greek omelette with some fruit. Doesn’t get much better.

    • Taralynn McNitt

      OMG YES!

      I love cleaning, laundry and baking on Fridays. It’s so relaxing and allows you to just CHILL all weekend long.

      I agree about that combo! Goat cheese and omelets are amazing.

    Hi Taralynn,
    I LOVE LOVE your blog and wish I could have half of the posititivity you do! You are truly an inspiration.

    I am reading the book It Starts With Food and it talks about the whole 30 movement. It’s such a good book and something I thought a fellow health foodie such as yourself would enjoy! If you ever find yourself interested in a good read, I would definitely recommend!

        Hi! I’ve been following you for a few years and would love your input. First some quick background : I’m 28 and live in Mystic, CT with my husband, 8 month old son, and two pups. My husband and I love to travel, hike, eat fresh, and workout regularly. Our good friends recently moved down to Waxhaw and we are visiting them this weekend! We are seriously considering moving down there because Charlotte seems to fit our lifestyle perfectly. I’m an event planner (with a focus on high end weddings and major events *used to be the event manager for a TPC in CT and helped plan the Travelers championship*) . Having lived there a while now, do you have any recommendations of where I should be looking for a job? I’ve been looking on Linked In but it’s so hard when you don’t know the area. Sorry for the length of the comment– just excited and want to make the most of our quick trip this weekend. I’d appreciate ANY direction! I’ve lived in CT my whole life so this is all so surreal.

    How many ounces total of oats? I only purchase oats in bulk, not in individual packets.

    Hi Taralynn! This looks delicious 🙂 I was just wondering, if we don’t have Stevia, is there any other type of sweetener substitute?

    My wife is gluten free and I like all of the recipes. I am going to try to make this one for her for our anniversary breakfast.

    I made this last night to bring into the office. It turned out perfectly and I cannot wait to share it with everyone. My two coworkers are gluten free so I think they’ll appreciate this recipe.

    This looks amazing!! Is there an alternative to the 2 blueberry oatmeal packets in the ingredients?

    Love the blueberry oat cake; I can imagine it tastes sweet, Taralynn. Though I would have it for afternoon tea rather than breakfast. My breakfast is just a coffee mixed with coconut oil. Been doing this for the past two years.

    On Fridays, I take the kids after school to town for them to do some shopping with their pocket money. Friday evening is when I can relax with a glass of wine and watch TV episodes. I’m watching the final season of Grimm and also Walking Dead. What did you watch on Netflix? I want to watch Stranger Things next.

    By the way Taralynn, I love that you include so many photos in your blog posts, it’s one of the most visual blogs I’ve seen.

    • Taralynn McNitt

      Thank you Leo!!

      I LOVE putting coconut oil in my coffee. My friend Becca got me hooked on it.

      Sounds like you have the most relaxing Fridays! I love that 🙂 I haven’t seen either of those shows, but I’ve heard really good things. I just finished the Killing!! IT WAS SO GOOD.

      I’m not much of a writer, but I do LOVE taking photos, so thank you so much for the kind words!! xo

      Have a great week!

    Hi Taralynn,
    I’m just curious how you add up the calorie and nutritional information. I’m trying to incorporate this into my daily food journal but don’t really grasp how to do it with all the food I make at home. Please help. A simple formula or is it complicated? I’d LOVE if you could detail this out so I can have a more accurate food journal. Thank you so much.

      Hi Johanna! I just use an online recipe calculator. You type in all the ingredients and it gives you the macros!:)

    It looks so good! Thanks for the recipe 🙂 I have no preference to a sweet or salty breakfast.

    I would love to spend my Friday afternoons doing whatever I feel like, but unfortunately, I have a full-time job, so work it is for me!
