Baked Pumpkin Pie Oats With Chocolate & Pecan

Ingredients:

  • Serves 2:
  • 1 cup oats
  • 5 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup plant milk
  • 1.5 tbsp ground flax
  • 2 tsp – 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Large pinch salt
  • Two handfuls pecans, chopped
  • 70g dark chocolate, chopped
  • For the spices:
  • Pumpkin pie spice, to taste (I added 1.5 tsp)

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 190C.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the oats, flax, spice mix, baking powder, pumpkin puree and milk. Sweeten using the maple syrup, then add in the spice mix and salt. Fold in the dark chocolate (leaving a few chunks to add on top) and the pecans.
  3. Pour into two oven-proof baking dishes, then  scatter over remaining chocolate chunks and place on a baking tray to bake for 25-35 minutes (this depends on the depth of your dishes Рcheck after 25 minutes!).
  4. Serve warm and enjoy.
