Oatmeal Banana Almond Cake

10 min prep time, 30 min baking time, serves 8 people

Instead of eating the same boring oatmeal for breakfast, try out this Oatmeal Banana Almond Cake recipe. It is both simple and tasty, offering both a soft and moist texture from the bananas and crunchy bite thanks to the sliced almonds. The cranberries give the cake a subtle tart, while the honey adds a sweet character to compliment the bananas. What makes it even better is that it is dessert that is just as good the next day, giving you the option of eating it for breakfast, or as leftovers for days to come.
