Ingredients

  • flax egg (2 tablespoons water plus 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal)
  • 2  Cups  gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1  Teaspoon  aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1/3  Cup  sugar, such as Truvia, or 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1  Teaspoon  cinnamon powder
  • 1/2  Teaspoon  nutmeg powder
  • 2-3  Tablespoons  coconut oil, melted
  • 1  Teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 2  Cups  almond milk
  • apple, thinly sliced
  • 1  Cup  blueberries
  • 1/3  Cup  pecans

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the flax egg and let it sit for 5-10 minutes or until thickened.

In a large bowl combine the rolled oats, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In another bowl, whisk the coconut oil, vanilla, milk, and flax egg. Add the oat mixture to a 9-inch round baking dish.

Pour the milk mixture over the oats. Place the apple in the middle over the oat mixture and scatter the blueberries and pecans.

Bake for 35-40 minutes until the top is golden and the oats have set. I placed mine under the broiler for an extra 3-5 minutes.

Vegan Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Vegan Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
