Ingredients
  • 3 cups Oatmeal
  • 1½ tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Ginger
  • ½ tsp Nutmeg
  • Chia Egg 1 tbsp Chia Seeds + 3 tbsp water
  • 2 Ripe bananas
  • ½ cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup + 1 tbsp Cane Sugar
  • 1 tsbp Honey
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider/White vinegar
  • ⅓ Cup Sliced Almonds (optional)
Directions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350ºf or 180ºc
  2. Soak 1 tbsp of chia seeds in 3 tbsp of water. Leave the chia seeds to turn into an "egg-like" gel while preparing dry and wet ingredients (about 5 minutes)!
  3. Blend oats until they create a flour like consistency. Measure out 2 cups of oats. Voila. Oat flour!(you will have a bit left over, I save mine for the next time I need it!)
  4. Put dry ingredients {Oatmeal through to Nutmeg} in a medium size bowl. Mix until spices are evenly dispersed..
  5. Mash Banana and Pumpkin together in large bowl. Add other wet ingredients {Chia egg through to Vinegar} to pumpkin-banana mixture (including chia egg). Whisk together until very smooth.
  6. Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Fold the wet ingredients into flour mixture. Fold until everything is well combined. The dough will be thick!
  7. Fold in the sliced almonds (optional)
  8. Spread in loaf pan
  9. Bake for 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out almost clear.
  10. Let sit for 20 minutes. Voila! Enjoy!
Notes
If you do not have cane sugar on hand use white or a light brown sugar. If you are out of vinegar - you can just leave it out altogether (bread will just be denser)!cIf you don't have any coconut oil on hand you can also use walnut oil, canola oil, peanut oil or even olive oil Let this cool down completely before cutting , you will get a much better "cut" to your bread!
