Lupus and Nutrition: Brownie Baked Oatmeal

Came across this recipe from Erin Lives Whole and thought I would share. This healthy baked oatmeal is delicious - chocolaty and just sweet enough to satisfy the girls. It's great for breakfast, or perfect for an afternoon snack. 

I'm always looking for ways to incorporate oats into our diet - they often take the place of flour and I'm loving all the mix ins I can add to make yummy oat granola, oaty protein bites, or healthy oat "cookies" - shredded coconut, flaxseed, chia seeds, or peanut butter. The recipe below incorporates the changes I've made. To see the original recipe,  click here. Let me know if you try it!
