Tips & Variations:

  • To make oat flour, process oats in a blender or food processor to a flour consistency.
  • To boost the protein, swap 1/2 cup protein powder for oat flour. (I like Isapro.)
  • Substitute 1 small mashed banana for pumpkin.
  • Add chopped nuts or chocolate chips to the batter.
