Description

Baked oatmeal squares, made easier, more delicious and with just 3 ingredients! With minimal effort, you’ll have a healthy, make-ahead, portable breakfast that also happens to be vegan, gluten-free, and just 155 calories per square.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats, divided use
  • 1 13.5-ounce can lite coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with foil; spray with nonstick cooking spray or lightly oil/grease.
  2. In a blender or food processor, process 1 cup of the oats with the coconut milk, water, sugar and salt until smooth.
  3. Arrange the remaining oats in an even layer in the prepared pan; slowly pour in the coconut milk-oat mixture. Use a spatula to gently combine and evenly distribute the batter in the pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 43 to 45 minutes until set at the center, crispy at the edges and golden brown. For extra crispy edges/golden color, turn the oven to broil (high) and broil for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for at least 10 minutes before removing from pan and cutting into 9 squares.
  6. Serve warm (plain or with any toppings you like, such as nut butter, jam, fruit, or in a bowl with milk) or cool completely!

Notes

Storage: Store the completely cooled squares in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Re-warm for 30-45 seconds in the microwave or enjoy cold!

Milk subs: Other varieties of milk can be used in place of the lite coconut milk. However, if the milk is low in fat, you will want to add about 2 tablespoons or more of the fat of your choice (e.g., coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, ghee, butter, vegan margarine) to the blender in step 2 to make up for the missing fat (the bars will be rubbery without it!).
