IntroductionHearty and Heart Healthy Hearty and Heart Healthy
3/4 cups oats (NOT instant)
1 cup westsoy unsweetened soymilk
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tbsp baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, olive oil, applesauce, vanilla extract, brown sugar and sugar. Stir until well blended. (You may need to use a beater to get out the lumps from the brown sugar.)
In a separate bowl, add the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix well with a fork. Add this to the wet batter a little at a time, constantly mixing, until both are well blended together.
Add the soymilk and oat to the batter. Mix well.
In a 13 x 9" baking pan, spray with canola oil. Use a paper towel or napkin to spread evenly.
Pour the batter to the baking pan.
Bake for 30 minutes, turning pan after 15 minutes. You may find you need to bake it for a little longer, 5-7 minutes tops.
Cake is finished when a toothpick in the center comes out clean.
When warm, the cake will be light and fluffy but the more it cools, the denser it will become.
Makes approx. 30 2x2" pieces.
Number of Servings: 30

This is awesome! Although the olive oil sounded out of place, so I upped the applesauce to 1 cup & left the oil out. Also, didn't have soy milk (do not like it at all) so I used Silk Almond milk instead. Delicious! Love the oats in it, great texture! Will make again for sure! - 2/20/12
Very good; just not quite as good as the one we usually make. I used almond milk and I cut the white sugar to less than 1/2 cup. We agreed it was still too sweet for us. Will make again with even less sugar. Also will chop oats a bit smaller to make like we're used to ... this recipe is healthier! - 8/15/10
