Ingredients

  • 2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Few dashes of a spice of choice (e.g. nutmeg, clove, marjoram, cardamom or ground ginger)
  • 1/8 – ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen berries of choice (e.g. raisins or cranberries)
  • ¼ cup chopped/sliced nuts of choice

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well until combined.

Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray or place muffin liners in cups. Evenly distribute mixture into 12 baking cups (approximately ¼ cup each). The mixture will be watery, so continue to mix before each scoop to ensure an even combination of the ingredients.

Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until cooked through. Serve warm or store in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days or in the freezer for up to three months.
