Vegan Oatmeal Bake

Originally posted 10/4/17

Ingredients: Serves 6-8

2 cups of old fashioned oats

2 cups milk of choice

2/3 cup of chopped nuts, slivered almonds, or shredded coconut

1 “flax egg” OR 1/2 cup of applesauce OR 1 mashed banana

1 cup of chopped fruit, any variety

2 teaspoons of vanilla

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

2-3 tablespoons of brown sugar


Step 0.5: Preheat your oven to 350F and grease a loaf pan or small baking dish.

Step 1: Combine your oats, nuts, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.

Step 2: Add your milk, applesauce, fruit, and vanilla and stir to combine.

Step 3: Pour your oat mixture into your greased pan and spread evenly.

Step 4: Bake for 15-30 minutes, or until golden brown. If you use a smaller pan with taller sides, this will take longer to cook–my loaf pan took the full 30 minutes, but other pans I’ve used have taken less time. Additionally, using coconut or almond will have a faster cooking time than using other chopped nuts, another reason for a longer cooking time.

Step 5: Cool slightly and serve hot! This recipe freezes and reheats well, and leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to 1 week.
