Flahavan’s Oat Drinks which come in three delicious variants, Vitamin Rich, Barista and Organic, have teamed up with fitness fanatic Nathalie Lennon and fabulous foodie Indy Power to create some lovely recipes using Flahavan’s Vitamin Rich Oat Drink and Flahavan’s Organic Oat Drink.


Vanilla Chocolate Ganache Cake by Indy Power

Serves 6-8 slices | Takes 1 hour



For the cakes:

550ml Flahavan’s Organic Oat Drink

1.5 tbsp apple cider vinegar

345g of flour (plain or gluten free)

275g of coconut sugar

pinch of sea salt

1 tsp. of baking soda

1 tbsp. of baking powder

180ml of melted coconut oil

1tsp of vanilla essence


For the ganache:

 270g of dark chocolate chips

 125ml Flahavan’s Organic Oat Drink



Preheat the oven to 180’C, grease two 20cm spring form cake tins with a little coconut oil.

In a medium bowl, combine the oat milk and vinegar and set it aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, coconut sugar, sea salt and the baking powder and baking soda.

While mixing, pour the melted coconut oil and vanilla essence into the dry ingredients. When that’s incorporated, gradually add the milk while continuing to mix. Mix just until well combined.

Divide the batter evenly between your cake tins, if you want to be precise there should be about 640g of batter in each tin.

Bake the cakes for about 36-40 minutes until golden all over and a cake tester comes out clean.

Let them cool for 15 minutes before removing them from their tins and allowing them to cool completely on cooling racks.

To make the ganache, heat the oat milk in a saucepan on medium heat until gently simmering, then turn off the heat.

Add the dark chocolate to a medium bowl and pour the hot oat milk in on top. Add a little pinch of sea salt and stir gently until smooth and glossy.

Spread some of the ganache out over the top of one cake, then place the other one on top and spoon the ganache into the middle. Use a spoon to swirl it outwards, letting it drip over the edges. Serve while the ganache is still drippy.
