Recipe type: Vegan
Yield: 9 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Seeds of 1 vanilla bean, scraped (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
  • 2 1/4 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries, plus a few extra for topping*
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 8 x 8 square baking pan. Combine ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons warm water in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and seeds from vanilla bean (if you’re using vanilla extract, add it to the wet ingredients).
  3. Add the almond milk, maple syrup, and oil to the flaxseed mixture and whisk to combine. Add to the dry ingredients and stir. Fold in the strawberries.
  4. Spread mixture into prepared baking dish and top with additional strawberries. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Let cool a little before serving.
  5. This oatmeal can be served warm or cold. Non-dairy milk, jam, maple syrup, and nut butters are excellent toppings.
Notes
*Frozen strawberries can be used - microwave for about 30 seconds, so they are softer but still a little frozen, and they should be perfect for slicing.
