O.A.T. Blend Simply Healthy Recipes

Our O.A.T. Blend goal is to help keep life simple and healthy.  Our recipes will reflect that.  We focus on using the least amount of ingredients, while still creating a satisfying 'real food' snack.  Quick and Healthy - your family will never suspect!! You can always ADD IN your favorites for extra variety and nutrition.  Or, try our O.A.T. Blend as a substitute for the 'flour, sugar, and leavening agents' in your favorite recipes! 

NOTE:  For liquid, I use Unsweetened Plain or Vanilla Flavored Almond Milk or just water.  For the Oil, I use Macadamia Nut Oil, feel  free to  use whatever kind you like the taste of, and/or use fresh Apples peeled and blended or even Butter.

Here are some of our favorites:  (Please check back as we update our site with our O.A.T. Pie Crust, O.A.T. Chocolate Cake in a Mug, and more!!)
