Happiness comes in many forms.

It can come in the form of breakfast cake.DSC05964

Quick Oaty Breakfast Cake (based on this amazing recipe)

Serves one hungry person (me! :P)

  • 1/4 cup (spelt) flour
  • 1/8 cup quick cooking oatmeal (I used Ready-Brek)
  • 1/8 cup oat bran (or flour/oatmeal etc.)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used coconut milk)
  • 2 tablespoons jam/unsweetened applesauce/canned pumpkin etc. (I used fruit-sweetened strawberry jam)
  • Couple of handfuls of mix-ins! I used dried blueberries and sultanas, but any dried fruit, chopped nuts, chocolate chips, etc will work!
  1. Grease a sandwich tin. Mix all ingredients together and pour into your tin.
  2. Place into an unpreheated oven at 210C for approx 15 mins, until done.DSC05959

Voila! I love how quick and endlessly customisable this is! I may have to try a chocolate one soon, with cocoa powder and chocolate chips…mmm…

Happiness comes in the form of yummy food.


Obviously breakfast cake is yummy!!


Oh dear. Emma's found more granola...


A spicy tofu, courgette and noodle bowl


A Graze box of fennel seed and honey peanuts- DELISH!


Dark choccie...obviously

Happiness can come in the form of setting new PR’s in your awesome new racing shoes.

I love my Fire Shoes!!


Hello average pace 7.28 min/mile!! Can’t wait to push this! Open-mouthed smile

Big hugs to you all! Open-mouthed smileAnd a shout out to the lovely Jessica who suggested I call this post ‘Happy’. So I did, because I am!

I. Heart. You.


That's sposed to be a heart shape...fail! 😛

And to help show you just how much, I will not only be announcing the giveaway I’ve been promising for weeks tomorrow, but I am also going to be announcing an even bigger one that I’ve sorted specially as a thank you! Smile

So tell me some things that make you happy! Everything I’ve said above, and more!

And what is your current favourite breakfast food? My ‘always’ is oatmeal obviously, but at the moment it’s breakfast cake!! I love pancakes too. Now I’m feeling like chocolate pancakes tomorrow…mmm…pancakes…

    My husband
    Ice cream
    the sunshine!
    living in California 🙂

  4. You goofy pictures make me pretty happy 😉

    But right now, the time I’ve spent the last couple of days catching up with friends, and my girly lunch and cinema date tomorrow, makes me especially happy.

    That and the fact that it’s a rest day, as I am SO freakin sore.

    Nice PR! 😀

  5. Yay! I’m glad you wrote this and that you feel happier today. Even though you write this blog publicly, all that matters is that YOU are happy with you. I love reading your blog because it’s always upbeat and friendly and relate-able. I’m sorry that some people made you feel less than that for a time! HUGS 🙂

  6. OH I love this post!! Congrats on your PR in your en fuego shoes!!

  7. I’m glad you’re having a better day today 🙂

  8. YAY for another giveaway!!! also… i sure hope you didnt just eat that little slice of that cake— i think i wudve eaten the whole thing!! AHAH YES more granola!! i hope to see handfuls of that popping up !

  9. What a great post! Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and I have to say a great bowl of oats takes a lot of beating! I also love a good breakfast wrap with apple and nut butter, yum!

  10. This post title made me happy 😀 I’m so flattered that you’d take my words to heart and it’s fantastic to see you feeling more positive about yourself again.It’s so lovely of you to mention me so thanks for the shout out!

    And a new PR? Fantastic: just shows how healthy and strong you truly are because I very much doubt either your frenemy or that commenter could bust out such a fantastic time at will.

    Chocolate, of course, makes everything better and I’ve been adding lots of cocoa to my breakfasts recently. Nothing beats a huge bowl of oats with rice milk, banana, PB and strawberry jam though. I enjoyed one this morning, alongside a rice milk latté I made.

    Have a wonderful Sunday!

  11. Yay glad you are so happy! Love those funny pictures 🙂 Breakfast is my fave meal and my fave porridge is with pumpkin puree, dried cranberries and allspice. Yum. Must have that again soon.
    Lots of things make me happy- running (ands feeling strong with it)makes me happy- which reminds me- love the new shoes and awesome time! Baking makes me happy, seeing my friends makes me happy- I have lots to be happy about and so do you! Yay!

  12. I try and start my day off with green smoothies/juice/kombucha-but bfast cake sounds perfect! I just ordered new orange shoes-they’re my 3rd pair, love ’em!

  13. Added that recipe to my massive ‘to bake’ list!

    so glad to see you happy again!!

  14. breakfast and cake are two words I love seeing together – that looks delicious! Glad you’re feeling good, you have a lot to be happy about 🙂

  15. I love being happy – and seeing other people happy makes me happy … so I have a big smile on my face now!
    Melon makes me happy – especially cantaloupe – it looks just like sunshine. Chocolate also makes me happy (obviously).
    Breakfast is my favourite. Full stop. Banana oatmeal is floating my boat in particular at the moment.

  16. Breakfast cake looks awesome! Yum—I could totally make that an customize with some fruit 🙂

    Glad you’re feeling happier!
