Whole Food Ingredients
Indulge in this healthy and delicious vegan brownie baked oatmeal. It is ready in just 15 mins and made with simple pantry ingredients. Here is what you’ll need:
- oats – use rolled oats for this recipe, for gluten-free oatmeal, be sure to use certified GF oats.
- plant-based milk – I used oat milk but any other variety works – almond, soy, cashew, etc.
- dates – I used regular pitted dates, they are rich in fiber and minerals and sweeten the oatmeal naturally without using processed sweeteners.
- peanut butter – use natural peanut butter with no additives like sugar, salt or oil. You can swap it for almond butter, cashew, or hazelnut butter.
- cocoa powder – use regular cocoa powder, adds great chocolate flavor
- vanilla – it enhances the flavor of the oatmeal, you can use pure vanilla extract or vanilla powder
- ground flax seed – a great source of healthy omega-3 fats. Always use freshly ground flax seeds so they can be digested and absorbed.
- optional – dairy-free dark chocolate chips to sprinkle on top for extra chocolatey flavor
