– 1 cup old-fashioned oats – 1 cup all-purpose flour – ¼ cup brown sugar – 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon – ¼ teaspoon salt – 1 large egg – ½ cup coconut oil, melted – 2 cups apples, diced – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1 tablespoon lemon juice – 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg – 2 tablespoons water – 1 tablespoon maple syrup – 1 tablespoon chia seeds

Begin the recipe by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. and line a square baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.

Step #1

Using a food processor, pulse together oats, flour, brown sugar, baking powder, ground cinnamon, salt, egg, and melted coconut oil until it forms a crumbly but sticky mixture.

Step #2

Set aside ⅓ of the mixture to use for the topping. Add the rest of the mixture into the prepared parchment-lined baking pan and press evenly into the bottom of the pan.

Step #3

In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the diced apples, vanilla extract, lemon juice, ground nutmeg, water, and maple syrup until heated and the sauce is warm.

Step #4

Stir chia seeds into the apple mixture and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Pour the mixture onto the crust mixture in the baking dish and spread in an even layer.

Step #5

Sprinkle the reserved ⅓ topping that you set aside on top of the apple mixture evenly.

Step #6

Place into the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the top has lightly browned.
