Serves: 4
Ingredients
Oatmeal
  • 1 C. Water
  • 1 C. Almond Milk
  • 1 C. Very Ripe Banana, Broken Into Chunks
  • ¼ C. Coconut Sugar
  • 1-2 T. Maple Syrup
  • 1 T. Ground Flaxseed
  • 1½ tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 C. (Gluten-free) Rolled Oats

  • 3 T. Vegan Chocolate Chips
Topping
  • ½ C. Banana, Sliced
  • 2 T. Walnuts, Chopped
  • 1 T. Chocolate Chips + 1 tsp. Hot Water (Stir together for simple chocolate sauce)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Place water, almond milk, 1 C. banana, coconut sugar, maple syrup, flaxseed, vanilla extract and salt into a blender and pulse for 10 seconds.
  3. Next, add the oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips to the blender and pulse a couple of times to mix them in (or stir together if you think you might puree it on accident).
  4. Pour the mixture into a high-walled, round, 7-8″ baking dish. Top with a couple of banana slices if you feel so inclined.
  5. Bake for 45 minutes, making sure that the top and edges are golden brown.
  6. Top with freshly sliced bananas, walnuts and chocolate drizzle. Serve hot, and add a little maple syrup over the top for extra sweetness. Enjoy!
