Yes, it sort of looks like bird food, as a friend of mine had commented to me, BUT it is tasty, and the texture is more interesting than plain ol' oatmeal.
This was adapted from sweetpeasandpumpkins.com "baked carrot cake oatmeal."
Here's how to make it:
Grease a 9x13" baking pan.
Blend together until well combined:
• 2 eggs*
• 1/2 cup puréed fruit (pear or apple sauce)
• 1 cup flax milk (or any milk of your choice)
• 2 tbsp canola oil (might be able to use avocado here instead)
• 1/2 cup light brown sugar (not packed)
• 2 cups rolled oats**
• 1/2 cup puffed millet
• 2 tsp baking powder
• 1 tsp ground cinnamon
• 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
• 1/2 tsp ground ginger
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Stir in:
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup raisins
Spread into baking pan.
Bake for 30 min.
*Vegan egg substitute:
1 "egg" = 3 tbsp hot water + 1 tbsp ground flax seed
**The original recipe called for 3 cups of oats (no millet or quinoa), but I didn't have that, so I threw in the puffed millet and quinoa that I had on hand instead.
