This one will save your bacon on a busy morning (it’s vegan, so, it will also literally save your bacon! 🙂

Make the night before, pop it in the fridge, and cook it up in 20 minutes.  Or, even better, bake it fully the night before, and just reheat in the morning for a quick, healthy breakfast.  Start the day off right with a yummy treat high in healthy protein and fiber. Comfort food for crazy mornings, my kids love this recipe.

 

Ingredients:

2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder

1 tsp sea salt

1 cup frozen berries (any kind will do, chop them up if they are large strawberries or blackberries)

1 grated apple, washed with skin on

1/4 cup ground flax seed

1 cup almond milk

1 block of silken tofu

1 more apple, washed, unpeeled and sliced for garnish *optional (see photo for idea)

 

To prepare:  Combine dry ingredients, including berries, in a large bowl.  Combine wet ingredients, including apple, in a food processor and blend until smooth.  Then add the wet to the dry and mix well.  Pour into a greased 8×8” pan and refrigerate overnight (The next morning, cook at 350F for 20 minutes).  Or, if eating the same day, bake in 350F oven for about 45 minutes, or until top appears dry.  Cut into squares and serve hot with almond milk, maple syrup and more fruit to garnish.  This also makes a pretty great grab-and-go cold snack.
