Ingredients
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut (optional-my kids are not fans of coconut so I made it without)
  • 1 teas ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbls sucanat (or brown sugar)
  • 1/2 teas salt
  • 2 cups old-fashion rolled oats (do not use quick oats!)
  • 1 teas baking powder
  • 2 cups almond milk (you can use low-fat 1% milk)
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup (look at label - stay away from high fructose corn syrup!)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbls coconut oil (or canola oil)
  • 1.5 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 medium unpeeled apple washed and shredded (1 cup worth)
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup raisins
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8 inch baking dish with coconut oil spray.
  2. Mix 1/2 cup of the pecans, 2 tablespoons of the shredded coconut, 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon, the sucanat (or brown sugar) and a pinch of sea salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. Stir together in another bowl oats, baking powder, remaining 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon (I always add more cinnamon!), and a 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
  4. Whisk together almond milk, maple syrup, egg, coconut oil (you will need to make sure you heat this to a liquid first), and vanilla extract in liquid measuring cup.
  5. Pour the liquid milk mixture over to at mixture and stir. Then add 1/2 cup of pecans, 2 tablespoons of coconut, the apple, carrots and raisins. Stir until well combined.
