Sottish Oat Cakes & Roasted Tomatoes

If you’ve been around here for awhile, you already know I prefer savory over sweet. So, when choosing my ideal breakfast, I’ll often skip the pancakes & muffins and head towards something more like this: scottish oat cakes, eggs & roasted tomatoes.


The oat cakes a slightly dry, so serving them with perfectly cooked fried eggs & juicy tomatoes rounds out the meal perfectly.


  • 3/4 cup dry oats
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. granulated sugar
  • s&p to taste
  • 2 tbs. melted butter
  • 4 tbs. boiling water
  • 2 tbsp shredded monterey jack cheese
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • about 20 cherry tomatoes
  • 4 eggs



For the oat cakes:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, then bring your water to boil on the stove top.
  2. Combine all of the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl, add the water & melted butter and stir together until the mixture is combined.
  3. Scoop the mixture onto a cookie sheet and spread until it’s about 1/4 of an inch thick.
  4. Bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden brown
  5. Remove from oven, sprinkle with cheese and drizzle with honey
For the tomatoes:
  1. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Add tomatoes, sprinkle with s&p, cook until tomatoes are bursting.
  3. After removing the tomatoes from the pan, cook your eggs for about 5 minutes or until whites are cooked through & yolk is still runny.
  4. Serve with oat cakes … Even better when mixed all together!
  5. Enjoy!

Apple & Cinnamon Coffee Cake

While we were catching up on TV last night, we ended up watching a few episodes of New Girl. In one of the episodes, Jess was appalled to know that one of her new friends doesn’t like dessert. How could someone not like dessert?! Well, I am kind of one of those people. Sure, every now & then, something sweet sounds good, but typically, I’d choose pickles over ice cream & pizza over a cupcake!

Here’s the thing, Jimmy loves sweets. So, in order to keep my hubby happy, I try to cook outside of my comfort zone a few times a week … which leads me to this apple & cinnamon coffee cake we made this morning.

You guys … If you haven’t stumbled upon Food Happy, take a few minutes to browse the site! Stephanie is a fellow vegetarian who uses a clean, simple approach to cooking. Her ingredients are easy to find, yet the dishes end up tasting like they took hours to prepare!! So, when I saw her recipe for Gram’s coffee cake, I knew we had to try it!

Head over to her post for the full recipe with step-by-step instructions & ingredients. *Note: We used almond milk instead of 2%, and it worked wonderfully.
