I present my husband’s favourite breakfast of all time – The oatmeal cinnamon bun by Chocolate Covered Katie.  If you haven’t already, please go check out her website – she is a genius in the kitchen!  I have tried so many of her recipes and not one of them has been a flop.  I make this exactly according to her recipe.  I recommend using applesauce and not banana – I have tried both and the texture with banana is not great.  I also highly recommend that you use coconut oil and that you do not omit the oil.  The flavor is the same but the buttery texture is lost without the oil – it makes a big difference.  For the “cream cheese” icing, I just beat (or throw it all in the vitamix) water, icing sugar, lemon juice and vanilla essence.  I add quite a bit of lemon juice to give it that sweet/sour tanginess.  Another great thing about this recipe is that you can make it in advance.  I like to use a large muffin pan (one of those with only 6 large holes and make it the night before.  I also make a huge jar of the icing syrup and store it in the fridge for a few weeks.  I just reheat the bun in the microwave the next morning and drench it in syrup before inhaling it:D  And please – ADD CHOCOLATE CHIPS TO THE BATTER!  You won’t be sorry…..

Have a beautiful day
