Vegan Blueberry Oatmeal Squares
I’m not much of a baker, so when you see a baked recipe on this site, you know it’s super easy. I just like to mix everything together in a bowl or pan and bake it – which is exactly what this recipe is!
Especially now that I’m feeding my toddler, I am extra conscious about the quality of ingredients that I use in my cooking and baking, which is why I love to use Bob’s Red Mill. Their oats are high quality and I use them in all of my recipes that call for oats, from my Beet and Oat Muffins to these oatmeal squares.
I’ve also used their flaxseed meal to make flax eggs, which is a simple 1:2 ratio of ground flaxseed to water, stirred together and let sit in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. The flax and water gels up and creates a binding agent to replace eggs!
These oatmeal squares are made with finely crushed walnuts to squeeze in healthy, brain powering fats into your little ones’ diets (and yours!) Luca loved making these with me, because he got to sneak in some extra blueberries as we made this.
These oatmeal squares will make your whole kitchen smell delicious and are a guaranteed way to get you and your family to start the day off on the right nutritional foot – or to snack nutritiously!
If you’re not vegan or not interested in flax eggs, just substitute 2 eggs for the 2 flax eggs here. The texture will be firmer, but the flavor will be the same (aka just as delicious!)
