Another experiment in our search for different baked oatmeals. We loved the Sunbutter taste but the texture wasn't quite as moist as the other recipes. That won't stop us from making it again because the Sunbutter and chocolate is a nice change. Once the oatmeal was completely cooled, I cut it into squares using a pizza cutter. I placed the squares on a baking sheet to flash freeze them. Once frozen, I transfered them into a Ziploc bag. They reheat perfectly in the microwave.
Sunbutter Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal
3 cups quick oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup soy milk
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup Sunbutter
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup safe chocolate chips
Combine the oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the soy milk, applesauce, Sunbutter and vanilla then stir until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Transfer the mixture evenly into a 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned and the center is firm. Cool completely before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight container, wrap individually into plastic wrap or foil or flash freeze then store in a Ziploc bag.
* Wonderful served with a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
