The Vegan Chocolate Almond Butter Oat Bake:
Made with oats, almond milk, almond butter, cocoa and sweetened with maple syrup, this little oat bake makes a fantastic snack or even a grab and go breakfast. The batter is whisked together in one bowl and bakes up in about 35-40 minutes.
So Is It a Brownie?
Well, yes and no. Like a brownie it is moist, delicious, chocolate-ly goodness cut into squares, and does have cocoa and chocolate, but because it is sweetened with maple and not made with eggs, or even flour it’s also a little unique. If you are looking for a traditional brownie <— Click!
Lets Talk Chocolate and Cocoa:
In this recipe I use both unsweetened cocoa powder and chocolate. Chocolate chips work great, or you can chop up your favorite chocolate bar. I use the HU paleo chocolate bar to keep this recipe refined sugar free.
Can You Freeze Vegan Chocolate Almond Butter Oat Bake?
Yes! I do it all the time and this oat bake thaws beautifully and heats in the microwave to become just as moist, warm and delicious as the day it’s baked!
