Cookie monster

These gluten-free oats just keep calling me!

I've seen a few microwave muffin/cookie concoctions on blogs and thought oats+cookie+almond butter = mmm.

So almost as soon as I got home, I tried out a recipe of my own. I'll just have to make another one *sigh* in order to take a picture because the first was scarfed down so quickly (purely for research purposes of course) that there was no chance of getting the camera out!

In less than two minutes, there it was...

2tbsp oats
1 egg white
1tsp almond butter (I might just have to double this next time...)
Pinch baking powder
Pinch salt
Sweetener to taste

Mix everything together until really well blended, then put on a plate (I just used my amazing bake-o-glide silicon liner sheet) and microwave on medium/high for about 40 seconds. Don't let it overcook and dry out; keep checking.

Mine had risen to about 2in high after 30 seconds, but it did calm back down once the power was turned off.

I spread mine out so it was quite thin and saucer-sized and it was delicious (I think I may have said...) but I think doing it in a mug and making a muffin would also work (more experimenting needed, clearly!)

Update - was patient enough to take a picture of this one!


  1. Hey girl!
    Your sundae (a few posts back) is gorgeous! And I'm so glad you commented on my blog, letting me know about yours, because I didn't know you had a blog, so I had your hug-a-fruit photo un-linked. Fixing it now :) :)

  2. Thank you! It was delicious too so thank you so much for starting the challenge... :)
