what’s better than coffee cake? pumpkin spice flavored coffee cake. this is a delicious pumpkin spiced coffee oat cake that makes for a great dessert…or breakfast….or dinner 😉
This is a great, yummy twist on traditional oats and coffee cake. This is for those of you who want to include oats into your diet but want to mix it up a little. Don’t get me wrong, oats are great but they can get pretty monotonous and boring after awhile. I love making these oat cakes because they not only have a great texture but also a great flavor. And the flavor possibilities are endless. I have already made several variations which I will upload onto my blog…eventually. But just to give you an idea, some of the flavor combos I have made are blueberry pie, chocolate covered strawberry, mocha, chocolate caramel, and carrot cake.
