Increasing your fiber can lower your risk of heartburn!
- 1 Tbsp Flaxseed meal
- 2.5 Tbsp Water
- 2.5 Cups Old fashioned oats
- 1 Cup Milk of your choice
- 1/2 Cup Pumpkin puree
- 1/2 Cup Maple syrup
- 1/4 Cup Melted coconut oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, then spray or coat an 8×8 baking pan with oil or nonstick spray.
Mix flaxseed meal with water in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes.
Place oats in a food processor and mix until you create a flour. You can also use 2¼ cups of oat flour instead of making your own!
Combine flaxseed mixture with milk, pumpkin, maple syrup, oil and extract. Mix well.
In a clean bowl, whisk oat flour with chia seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and baking soda.
Pour milk into the oat flour mix and stir just until combined. Do not over-mix.
Fold in almond slivers then pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake 30-35 minutes until the edges begin to brown and the middle is set. Do not overbake!
Cool, then cut into bars, which can be stored up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
