Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 6 tablespoon unbleached all purpose flour (or sub flour of choice)
  • ¼ cup quick cooking oats (or rolled oats)
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons sucanat (or sub sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon oil (I used canola), plus more to prep the ramekins
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare two ramekins by brushing the inside area with oil.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. In another medium bowl, whisk together pumpkin, almond milk, sucanat, oil, and vanilla extract.
  4. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients, careful to not overmix.
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the cakes are cooked through (test by inserting a toothpick inside the center of the cake - if it comes out clean, they're ready. If batter sticks to the toothpick, they need to cook a bit longer).
  6. Let cool until safe to eat and then scoop straight out of the ramekin to enjoy!
Notes
Note: I used ramekins that 3" diameters. I got them at Crate and Barrel.
