Ingredients

2 cups regular oats, processed into a flour

½ cup regular oats (not processed)

½ cup dark brown sugar, packed firmly

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp sea salt

⅛ tsp ground cloves

⅓ cup applesauce

¼ cup almond milk

¼ cup + 1 Tbsp Baker’s angel flake coconut, sweetened

½ Tbsp coconut oil, melted (or other light tasting oil)

1 tsp pure almond extract

2 medium very ripe bananas, peeled

¼ cup dark chocolate chips

¼ cup walnuts, chopped (optional)

Instructions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 8 inch (4 cup) casserole dish or 8 inch cake pan. Take 2 cups of regular oats and process them in a food processor until our like consistency.

    In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: oats, sugar, baking powder, salt and ground cloves.

    In another bowl, mix together the applesauce, milk, coconut, oil and almond extract. Add in the two peeled bananas and smash into the wet ingredients until smooth.
