Snacks & Treats
1 cup oats (I use quick oats)
1 cup boiling water
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup coconut or canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp cinnamon
¾ cup chopped dried fruit (raisins, craisins, dates, apricots etc.)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the oats and boiling water in a small bowl and set it aside for 20 minutes, unless you’re using quick oats – they’ll be ready almost immediately.
Make the chia eggs by mixing 2 tbsp of chia seeds in 6 tbsp of water and set it aside to gel.
Prepare a muffin pan by lining it with cups or rubbing the inside with oil.
In a large bowl mix the sugar, oil and vanilla; then add the oatmeal and chia eggs. Finally add all the dry ingredients and mix well.
Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin pan and bake for 16-20 minutes.
