Pumpkin Oatmeal Bake (Vegan)

Yes, most of my recipes include oats. They are easy to bake with, versatile, and affordable. Trader Joe’s has a big bag of GF old-fashioned oats for about $6 and it lasts! All the other ingredients you probably have on hand already, especially if you bake often. These are great on their own as a snack (I like to top mine with PB) or in a yogurt bowl with fruit.

Included in this yummy bake are pecans, chia seeds, protein powder & chocolate chips. You can add whatever you want – no nuts, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, the options are all yours! Having these available are a great distraction from the usual packaged bars that we have. Grab the recipe below and get baking.
