Baked Apple and Cinnamon Oatmeal + Flax seeds

IMG_4924

With only 6 ingredients, plus a couple extra’s just to pump up the flavor (totally optional), it’s a great alternative to the normal cereal or packaged breakfast bar.

The flax seeds and nuts (almonds and pecans) are extra from the original recipe, but they add so much flavor.  I didn’t have shredded almonds so I used full almonds. Although I prefer shredded so I get more almond goodness in every bite. Pecans are softer, so instead of paying more for the already crushed up ones, I just crushed them up myself.
