Cake-Fest.

I’m seriously driving myself crazy.

I’m going to show you how to take breakfast ingredients and use them in dessert.

This is dangerous business here, people!

I mean, I’ve practically given you a million +1 reasons to eat dessert for breakfast or breakfast for dessert.

Let’s make oatmeal interesting, shall we?

This vanilla flax triple nut butter has been the reason for my existence lately.

I mean, why would I want to purchase the store bought stuff when I can make my own concoctions.

IMG_1250

Yea, well it’s going into this cake.

IMG_1252

With some oatmeal and chocolate chips…vegan if preferred.

IMG_1253

Oh, but wait…here is the girl who doesn’t really care much for oatmeal…

IMG_1254

unless it’s in a cookie form.

IMG_1255

Or if I’m just really, really ridiculously in the mood for what I like to call “breakfast slop.”

IMG_1262

I swear this photo is not of mashed potatoes.

IMG_1269

Although I wouldn’t mind a pile of mashed potatoes with ketchup and a big ole’ chicken fried steak right now.

IMG_1286

That is one delicious frosting…for this cake, that is.

IMG_1273

Just my luck…this cake is everything that I want in a cookie.

IMG_1272

It’s a warm and inviting cake, with a tender crumb and chock full of rolled oats. Then,

IMG_1274

with each bite you are transported to a heaven filled with melted, ooey, gooey, chocolate chip deliciousness.

Then we add this creamy coconut frosting that is made w/ homemade coconut butter, coconut flour, and a few other health conscious things.

IMG_1281

Man oh man.

IMG_1283

I’m bringing these to the pearly gates if Jesus doesn’t serve em’.

IMG_1284

This cake…I have no words.

IMG_1293

On another note…

IMG_1295

dessert is really becoming the new breakfast…and vice versa.

IMG_1294

At least in my world.
