Oatmeal To Go!

Here is another make ahead dish for those busy times! It tastes just like oatmeal, it’s portable, and it has more protein than traditional recipes! Oh, yeah!

Oatmeal Squares

2 cups of oats (instant, quick, gluten free, whatever) FYI, I have not tried this with steel cut oats yet.
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 cup of frozen raspberries
1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds
2 cups of unsweetened almond milk (or any milk that you like)
2 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla
any sort of non stick spray or coconut oil for an 8″ X 11″ pan

Turn the oven on to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together oats, brown sugar, baking soda, raspberries, and pumpkin seeds.
Spray an 8″ X 11″ pan with baking spray or coconut oil.
Dump the ingredients from the large bowl in to the pan, and spread out evenly.
In the same bowl (now empty), whisk almond milk, eggs, and vanilla until they’re well mixed.
Pour the liquid mix on the dry mix.
Press the dry mix down with a fork until it’s evenly submerged in the wet mix.
Bake for 40-45 minutes.
Cool for a bit, then put the pan in the fridge.
Once it’s cooled, slice it into 8 equal pieces.

Serves 8. ENJOY!!!

They’re good TO GO! See what I did there? ENJOY!!!

Feel free to use any berry, seed or nut mix in this recipe. Heck, even leave them out if you like. The key with this recipe is to make the oatmeal with ingredients you like.
