This oat flatbread makes a delicious snack or breakfast, as it made from oatmeal and has no added sugar! Top it with your favorite berries for more nutrition.
I created this recipe simply to satisfy a lazy afternoon snack craving.
You know the kind. You don't want to ruin your dinner, but you need something, and you need it now!
Wanting something relatively light and without sugar, this oat and berry bread is what I came up with!
Why I love this recipe
Not only is this flatbread quick and easy, it's also delicious.
The added applesauce gives it a modest sweetness, and when paired with the berries, cinnamon, and vanilla, it becomes surprisingly flavorful!
I considered making this into muffins or pouring it into a loaf pan, but, in light of having to clean those vessels, I decided to just slather it onto a baking sheet.
Lazy Lauren at her finest.
Can I omit the arrowroot?
Is there a substitute for applesauce?
Can I use another fruit?
Tips and tricks
This 'bread' could be dressed up any number of ways, using various spices or add-ins, but how I have posted here is my fave.
For a sweeter variety flatbread, top with a few chocolate chips.
We like to drizzle on some yogurt and/or honey too!
