Monkey Bread Mug Cake

monkey bread mug cake

If you are anything like me, you could eat oats every morning without getting tired of them. I don’t even need much variation – I am just looking forward to my chocolate oats from the moment I wake up.

But on the weekends, I like to take advantage of the time I have and invest it in preparing a bit more elaborate breakfasts. This time, I decided to roll my oats up in little balls and bake them in a gooey caramel paste. 🙂

I was inspired by a recipe I found on Pinterest by Feasting on Fruit, which looked incredibly mouth-watering and illustrated a very unusual way of enjoying the usual morning oats.

Ingredients:

Date Paste

  • 8 Medjool dates
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tbsp cashew butter (or other nut butter)

Caramel Paste

  • half of the date paste (above)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Dough

  • 25 g oat flour (ground oats)
  • 15 g unflavored protein powder (optional; can sub with more oat flour)
  • ¼ cup date paste (above)
  • 2 tbsp tapioca starch (or cornstarch)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions:

  1. Blend the dates, water & cashew butter for the date paste. Add a bit more water if necessary – the paste should be smooth but fairly thick.
  2. Mix together the ingredients for the dough. It should be quite dry and sticky, so that you can form balls out of it.
  3. Take half of the date paste and mix it with the maple syrup & cinnamon in a small bowl.
  4. Take a small piece of dough and roll it into a ball. Roll it in the caramel paste so that it is evenly covered. Place the ball in a small heat-resistant ramekin. Do the same with the rest of the dough.
  5. Microwave for 1 to 1.5 minutes on high or bake in the oven for 15-20 mins at 375 °F (I used the oven).
  6. Pour the remaining caramel paste over it & top with a bit of cinnamon. Enjoy!

Zutaten:

Dattelmus

  • 8 Medjool Datteln
  • 60 – 80 ml Wasser
  • 1 EL Cashewmus (oder anderes Nussmus)

Caramelcreme

  • die Hälfte des Dattelmus (oben)
  • 1 TL Ahornsirup
  • 1/2 TL Zimt

Teig

  • 15 g Proteinpulver ohne Geschmack (optional; can mit Hafermehl ersetzt werden)
  • 25 g Hafermehl (gemahlene Haferflocken)
  • ¼ des Dattelmus (oder mehr nach Bedarf)
  • 2 tbsps Tapiokastärke (oder Maisstärke)
  • 1/2 TL Backpulver
  • 1 TL Vanille
  • Prise Salz

Zubereitung:

  1. Datteln, Wasser & Cashewmus in einem Mixer zu Dattelmus verarbeiten. Bei Bedarf noch ein wenig Wasser dazu geben – aber nur so viel, dass das Mus cremig, aber noch dickflüssig ist.
  2. Alle Zutaten für den Teig vermischen. Er sollte trocken und klebrig sein, sodass man daraus gut Kugeln formen kann.
  3. Die Hälfte der Dattelpaste in einer kleinen Schale mit dem Ahornsirup & Zimt vermischen.
  4. Eine kleine Menge des Teiges herausnehmen und daraus eine kleine Kugel formen (ca. 2-3 cm Durchmesser). Diese nun im Dattelmus rollen, sodass sie gleichmäßig bedeckt ist. Nun die klebrige Kugel in eine Mini-Ofenform legen. Genauso mit dem Rest des Teiges verfahren, bis er komplett zu Kugeln verarbeitet ist.
  5. Für 1 – 1.5 Minuten auf hoher Stufe in der Mikrowelle erhitzen, oder für 15-20 Minuten bei 180°C im Ofen backen (ich habe es im Ofen gebacken).
  6. Herausnehmen und das restliche Dattelmus darüber geben und mit Zimt garnieren. Mmhhh!
