i've been sharing some pinterest-inspired recipes i've been trying. here's one of my most-recent favorites...
i have loved these -- especially as the individual portions (with a variety of toppings) but you could also make it in a large pan and serve it up like brownies.
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 banana mashed
1 1/2 tsp stevia powder (or use 1/2 cup honey)
5 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup chia seeds*
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
3 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups milk (i used almond milk)
toppings i chose: chocolate chips + frozen berries
(cupcake liners - i used these for the regular sized muffin pan, but just sprayed w/ coconut oil for the mini pan!)
*i'm a new fan of chia seeds -- high in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber & a complete protein!
mix all ingredients (adding milk last) then add toppings once portioned into baking cups.
bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
my favorite combo so far is chocolate chip + raspberry. yum-o.
sugarfreemom.com also has a steel-cut oats recipe here where she used the chia seeds (her rolled oats called for flaxseed, but i switched them!) -- great blog & great recipe. i'll definitely be making these again & again!!
