  • 2 cups milk or almond milk

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray a 7x11" baking dish with cooking or baking spray.
  3. Add the dry stuff right into the dish: oats, baking powder, salt and optional cinnamon. Stir the ingredients around with a fork.
  4. Add the wet stuff into the dry: milk, eggs, applesauce, vanilla, and fruit. Stir that around well with a fork.
  5. Sprinkle fruit on top. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top. Bake for 35 minutes. Shake the pan slightly and the middle should not jiggle. If the middle is jiggly, put it back in the oven for 3-5 minutes.
