floors and chocolate oat bars

Day 12 here in New York City. It's been very busy getting used to life here, and starting classes. I think I've walked more in the past 12 days than I have in an entire year at home though. It's incredible- but awesome! My floor is about 23 people, and we are all pretty close. It's an interesting dynamic, but it's good to know everyone walking around your hallways.

Last night we all had a night in since we went out Friday night. In honor of the floor's movie night, I made oat bars inspired from this blog, but changed up the recipe a bit to accommodate a 20+ floor. This recipe is for the chocolate version, but the pictures correlate to the cinnamon mix. For that, just subtract the chocolate from the mix.

-2 cups uncooked oats
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-2 tsp cinnamon
-1 tbsp cocoa powder
-4 packets of truvia or 1/4 cup sugar
-1 cup applesauce or pumpkin
-1 cup almond milk

-Preheat oven to 375 F and spray baking pan
-mix all ingredients together and spread into pan
-bake for 20 minutes, then broil for 3
-let cool slightly before removing from pan
-spread with glaze if desired too

Pretty simple, and pretty healthy. The oats cook really nicely, and have a chewy consistency. The glaze is simply powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and almond milk. Mix until your desired consistency!

I'm off to do homework- till next time!
