Ingredients

  • 2 cups oats
    • *We prefer steel cut, as they provide more nutrients, but you can also use basic rolled oats or gluten-free oats
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup strawberries (or other favorite berries)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (at least 60% cocoa)
  • 2 cups skim, soy, or almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 banana, sliced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, agave nectar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the walnuts, half the berries and half the chocolate.
  3. In another large bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, applesauce and vanilla extract.
  4. Add the oat mixture to a 10.5″ x 7″ baking dish. Arrange the remaining strawberries, walnuts, bananas and chocolate chips on top.
  5. Pour the egg and milk mixture on top. Gently shake the baking dish to help the milk mixture go throughout the oats.
  6. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is nicely golden brown.
  7. Enjoy!
