Prep Time10 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time25 mins
Ingredients
 1 cup rolled (whole) oats
  cup oat flour
  cup brown rice flour
  cup almond meal (flour)
 1 tsp cinnamon
 1 tsp baking powder
 ¼ tsp salt
 2 very ripe bananas, mashed or 1/2 cup apple butter
 ½ cup soy milk or plant milk of your choice
 1 tbsp date syrup
 2 cups fresh fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries or 1/2 cup dried fruit such as cranberries, raisins, chopped dates
  cup roasted nuts, chopped (walnuts, almonds, pecans)
 1 tbsp flax, hemp or chia seeds or combination of all
 ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)
 ¼ cup dark chocolate (vegan), chopped
Directions
1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line an 8 by 8 square pan with parchment paper. I use 2 sheets criss crossed so as not to have bunched up corners.
Combine the oatmeal, flours, cinnamon, baking powder and salt in a medium size bowl.
In a separate bowl, mash the banana and add the soy milk and date syrup. If using apple butter instead of bananas, mix that with the soy milk and date syrup. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients. Place the mixture in the prepared pan and top with the dried fruit, chocolate pieces, nuts, and seeds. Press down lightly. If using fresh fruit, add half the mixture, top with fruit and then add the rest of the mixture, top with more fruit, nuts and seeds. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes and cut into desired size pieces. Keeps for 3-4 days in a covered container or can be frozen.
