I don’t know if I’m mentioned it in a previous post, but I absolutely adore my siblings. I am lucky enough to grow up as the oldest of 5, and even luckier that we are still all very close. My adorable sister Katie (or Kate as I call her) is the one who inspired this recipe. We often have texting conversations, much of which probably shouldn’t be repeated on this blog. =)

However, I received one text from her recently… “Special vegan request. I love cinnamon apple Nutri-Grain bars. Can you makes something like that for your blog?” So in my best attempt, I tried to make a Nutri-grain bar-ish breakfast bar. They ended up being more similar to a breakfast cake, but I didn’t mind because they are so good! I love that they are lightened up for breakfast (and vegan!), OR they could be topped with some coconut milk ice cream for a yummy dessert.

To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8-inch baking dish with coconut oil (or other cooking spray).

In a small bowl or mug, mix together 1 tablespoon chia seeds with 4 tablespoons water. Set aside until thickened (4-5 min).

In a large bowl, add brown sugar, coconut oil, vegan butter, maple syrup, vanilla, and chia egg. Add the flour, baking soda, oats, sea salt, cinnamon, and cloves. Stir until combined. Add the diced apple and stir until blended.

Spoon the mixture into an 8 inch pan and spread evenly throughout. Stir to combine. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees  for 35-40 minutes.

It is best to let cool and then refrigerate for an hour before cutting and serving. You can also warm it up a bit before serving. Makes 15 addictive squares.

  • Can I use regular eggs? If so how many?

    • I haven’t made it with a regular egg, but generally 1 chia egg is equal to 1 regular egg, so if I were making it, I would try that. =) Thanks!
