Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Squares

Most of the time I don't need an excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast. Obviously. 
These little oatmeal squares are perfect though. They are filling, with a bit of chocolate, but are not overly sweet. More like a soft granola bar than a cookie. 

 Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Squares
makes 16 squares, adapted from good clean food

2 C flour
1 C rolled oats
1/2 C sugar
1 Tbsp ground flax
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 C almond milk
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 C maple syrup or agave
1/2 C applesauce
1/2 C vegan chocolate chips

Preheat over to 350 F.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, oats, sugar, flax, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Add in the almond milk, vanilla, maple syrup, applesauce and the chocolate chip and stir to combine.
Spread evenly into an 8 by 8" pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely then cut into squares.

I enjoyed these squares for breakfast and snacks throughout the week. They are perfect for packing in lunchboxes, too. Hope you enjoy them!

I'm in the middle of planning what I will post during Vegan MoFo, and I have a few ideas in the works on several different themes. Is there anything specific you'd like to see posts about? I'd love to hear your suggestions.

Thanks for stopping by!
