- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- 2 tbsp. chia seeds (more or less if desired)
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 3/4 cup unsweetened plain almond milk (room temp.)
- 2 eggs (room temp)
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen berries
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- Prepare 9 x 9 baking dish with nonstick spray.
- Combine oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
- In a small bowl, whisk 2 eggs.
- Add in almond milk, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla to eggs.
- Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix well. Pour into prepared baking dish.
- Slice strawberries if using. I found that the thinner the slice, the more I could over the oatmeal with a pretty layer of berries. Add berries on top (some may sink) and then add sliced almonds.
- Bake for 45-48 minutes or until golden brown. Top with peanut butter, fruit, syrup, more nuts, and cacao nibs!
