This oat flour olive oil cake is the perfect little treat to pair with a cup of coffee in the morning or tea in the afternoon. It also makes a great after dinner dessert.

For some reason, I have always wanted to make an olive oil cake. I’m not sure if I’ve ever even had one until I made this haha, but I just had a really strong desire to test it out.

This recipe took two tries, the first time I put in too much olive oil and while I am an olive oil lover, it was a little too much in the cake. The second time I think I got it just right. The honey adds some sweetness. It’s sweet, but not too sweet in my opinion.

I wanted to make these gluten-free so I used Bob’s Red Mill’s gluten-free oat flour. You can also make oat flour on your own, it’s super easy and saves money $$$. Add oats to food processor or blender and blend until it has a flour like consistency.

For this recipe I used Trader Joe’s multi-floral and clover honey (it comes in the little teddy bear shaped bottle). You can use local, raw or manuka honey for this recipe as well. I used this particular one mostly because of the low price tag.

How do I store the oat flour olive oil cake?

I stored mine in the fridge for a week and it stayed great. I just reheat in the microwave for 30 seconds when I want to enjoy. You can also freeze the cake in a freezer safe container for a few months.
