Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Protein Cakes {oil-free, gluten-free}

Packed with 14 grams of plant protein, these vegan oatmeal raisin protein cakes are a perfect breakfast or snack! They are oil-free, gluten-free, and baked in a muffin tin.

We are a mystery to many.

We are the oatmeal-raisin cookie lovers of the world.

While others recoil at the mention of raisins, or cry “foul!” when presented with oatmeal -raisin over chocolate chip, we rejoice over the humble, brown-sugary, whole-grain, raisin-studded sweets.

I can convince myself that eating a cake or two after a long run is justified, on occasion, but I’d rather not wait for the once-in-a-while option. Hence, I created these oatmeal-raisin cookie-cakes, which are packed with protein, whole grains, and healthy fats. Most importantly, they are DELICIOUS!

These cakes make a terrific, protein-packed snack or dessert (14 grams each, plus high fiber from the oats, and 160 calories apiece) in place of a purchased protein bar, but I love one for breakfast with some fruit and tea alongside. In fact, if ever there was a reason to rise and shine, these cookies are it.

 

The white chocolate drizzle is gilding the lily, but I do it anyway for eye-appeal. To get the thinnest drizzle possible (which allows you to use a minimum of chips), add a tiny dab of coconut oil when melted. This thins the melted chocolate so that a tiny bit portion of chocolate goes a long way. I only used 1-1/2 tablespoons of white chocolate chips to cover 6 cookies.

Happy baking everyone!

Can't wait to make these - they look awesome. Could you suggest a substitute for the protein powder? I don't have any on hand and would love to bake these right now. Thank you!

Hi Angel! Sure! Grind up and extra 1/2 cup of oats into a powdery flour (blender or food processor) and use in place of rice protein powder. They will still have a decent amount of protein from the beans and oats, and should taste just as yummy! Let me know how they turn out! :)
