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
