these are a few of my favorite things…. chocolate, tahini and oatmeal! they make the ultimate trio and the flavors mesh so well together! the oatmeal bake is super thick and chewy + it’s made with the best ingredients ever.
the key to an extra fluffy texture is dairy free yogurt! i used kite hill unsweetened plain almond milk yogurt. you can use just about any kind though!
Chocolate Tahini Oatmeal Bake makes the perfect breakfast squares because it’s really filling and super cozy! you will feel like you’re starting the day out right :).
yummy chocolate chips often make appearances in my desserts, but this oatmeal bake would be wonderful with any berries or banana too!
i wanted the oatmeal bake to be pretty thick, so i used an 8 x 8 baking pan! you can use a larger one, but monitor the baking time since it won’t take quite as long to cook through!
ah have the best thursday! did i ever tell you it’s my favorite day of the week? it’s when Alex and i usually snuggle up in our cozy pajamas, eat desserts and watch a movie together when he gets home from work.
