Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/41/3  cup maple syrup (see note)
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Carrington Farms Organic Coconut Cooking Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8″ x 8″ oven-safe dish. If desired, prepare a parchment sling by cutting out a piece of parchment paper slightly longer than the pan and placing it inside.
  2. In a large bowl add eggs and whisk to combine. Then almond milk, maple syrup, apple sauce, Carrington Farms Organic Coconut Cooking Oil, and vanilla and peppermint extract and whisk to fully combine.
  3. To the wet ingredients add oats, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, chia, baking powder, and salt and mix until fully combined.
  4. Pour into prepared 8″x 8″ dish and bake for 40 minutes, until the center is just barely firm.
  5. Scoop and serve warm as is or with almond milk, or cool and slice into 9 square portions.

Notes

For a barely sweet oatmeal bake, use 1/4 cup maple syrup. If you’d like it a bit more on the sweeter side, use 1/3 cup maple syrup.
