Ingredients

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 350. Line a 8×8 pan with foil & cooking spray.
Place steel cut oats, TVP, and quinoa in a pot with 2 cups of water.
Bring to a boil and simmer until soft (about 15-20 minutes) – drain any excess water.
Mix chia seeds with water to cover and let gel form.
Combine all other ingredients in a bowl and add oat/TVP/quinoa mix.
Bake for about 45 minutes, until firm & toothpick comes out clean.

Enjoy!

I purposefully left the recipe devoid of spices & added sweeteners. I don’t add any sweeteners to my food (artificial or otherwise) b/c it just increases my sweet tooth. Feel free to customize it as you see fit w/ cinnamon/splenda/stevia/etc.
