WIAW: Peanut Butter Oatcakes & Pumpkin Coconut Oat Muffins {Recipes}

Happy hump day!  We’re half way through the week, thank goodness!  It seems like the days are dragging on.  I blame it on being the first week back to work after being off for 2 weeks…  Thankfully, our cruise is only 10 days away :)

Thank you Jenn from Peas & Crayons for hosting another tasty link-up!

Peanut Butter Oatcakes


  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 2 tablespoons peanut flour
  • 1 teaspoon stevia
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 – 4 tablespoons water
  • raisins *optional*


  1. In a bowl, add all of the ingredients and whisk until the batter is smooth.  Note: I add the dry ingredients first, then the wet ingredients.
  2. Spray a medium-sized skillet with non-stick cooking spray and place over medium heat.
  3. For each pancake, spoon 2 generous tablespoons of batter into the pan.  Sprinkle with raisins if you’d like.  Cook each pancake until a few bubbles form and burst, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. 
  4. Flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 more minutes.
  5. Serve the stack of ‘cakes with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Question:  Avocados – yay or nay?  What’s your favorite way to eat ’em?

Question:  Do you use egg whites from a carton or from whole eggs?

  1. Yum to all of this!!! And I love your tweet about the unpictured orange 😛 I love avocados – only recently, I used to hate them. And I don’t think I have ever eaten only an egg white. Whole eggs all the way for me!

  2. Look at you and all of your fancy schmancy foods! You’ve got me tempted to try my own homemade pancakes. I’m usually a big fan of the mix but I really want to try them from scratch. A littleeeee bit intimidating for someone who doesn’t know how to cook.

  3. Ummm you just gave me the muffins I’m making this weekend so thanks for that 😉 this week is totally dragging and I AM SO PROUD OF ME hahahaha…I channeled the awesomeness that is you this morning to guess the proper amounts of oats to flour for oat cakes and got it right!! ahh I can go to bed a happy girl knowing that you are teaching me so well 😉 Oh and avocados are a must in any form

  4. wheres the coconut in the muffins?

  5. Gah, can’t wait to try those oatcakes!!! Nom, nom, nom.

  6. Oatcakes!! Haha! I am loving that word. Way to be creative! 😉

    And there is your creation of avocado and cottage cheese on rice cakes. I need to try this ASAP! You cannot go wrong with anything that involves avocado, right?? 😉

  7. Bwaha! Love the drama surrounding the unpictured orange 😉 And absolutely ADORE avocados. I’d have to say that my favorite way to eat them is probably mashed on toast with a spoonful of salsa, but they’re pretty fantastic in any Mexican dish involving cheese and chips. Mmm.

  8. My favorite way to eat avocado… any way possible. Seriously. I love them.

    And I want pancakes. Mmmm!

  9. i don’t know why i haven’t been buying avocados, but i need to start immediately. also i think this weekend it’s finally time for me to make some oatcakes. thanks for the inspiration :) all your food looks awesome and i’m glad you’re tweeting to remind yourself about that orange because god forbid we miss something for wiaw :)

    • Bahaha, it’s hard to remember sometimes that I have to share my foodie goods with all y’all too 😛 And yes, you must buy some avocados- they are full of creamy goodness!

  10. Two recipes in one post.. how in the world did we get so lucky??!!! :)

  11. peanut pancakes are amazing! love them! especially topped with healthy chocolate sauce..yum yum yum!

  12. peanut butter oatcakes?! YES!

  13. I need to get my hand on peanut flour, I really do

  14. That gnocchi looks SO GOOD. Gnocchis is one of my favorite foods ever (I’m Italian), and I’ve always wanted to try making it myself, but it looks so complicated!

    • Whelp, thank you but it’s only semi-homemade in the sense that the gnocchi was frozen from TJ’s and I jazzed it up with chicken sausage + bell peppers + mushrooms :) That Joe knows his gnocchi!

  15. Oh girl. I am absolutely trying those oatcakes soon. oooh yes.

  16. Just found your blog and can’t wait to explore more! Those oatcakes look awesome!

  17. Yummy! All your food looks soooo good! Avocado and cottage cheese is one of my long time favorite snack combos! Then again, anything with avocado is delicious! I eat a half at almost every meal! haha Both of your recipes look amazing…..PEANUT BUTTER!? Yes please!

  18. I have a new found love for anything cooked on a griddle (AKA Pancakes!) So I will be making these oat cakes ASAP!
