  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon 
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of almond butter

  • 2 apples, chopped
  • 1 cup almond milk 
  • 2 chia eggs
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Optional: sauté chopped apples in pan on low heat with maple syrup and coconut brown sugar for 5 min, or until soft
  • Combine dry ingredients in bowl first, then add wet. Mix thoroughly. 
  • Pour evenly in the pan and bake for 30-40 min. Let it cool. 

Pro Tips:

  • To make chia eggs, use 2 tablespoon of chia seeds + 5 tablespoons of water in bowl and refrigerate. Do this while starting the recipe and then they’ll be ready when everything is prepared. 
  • Using one mashed banana in all baked oatmeal recipes, adds a nice natural sweetness and no need for other maple syrup or sugar. 
  • Make it fun and bake what’s in season! If you don’t have coconut or all the ingredients, use what you have at home. You can also use frozen fruit!
  • If you want to make it nut free, try this combo — coconut milk, hemp seeds, shredded coconut, plus your favorite fruit. 
  • If you want to make mocha baked oatmeal, use cacao powder, coffee (instead of almond milk), cacao nibs and dark chocolate
