Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. This gluten-free whole grain is a great source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. Old-fashioned oats have a nutty flavor and are chewier than quick oats that have been flaked to cook quicker. When combined with some nuts and dried fruit, you can enjoy this healthy and easy baked breakfast with the whole family.

I love that you used almond milk and the recipe is vegan. I think there is this assumption that vegans can’t have delicious sweet treats. I also pinned this.
