Ingredients:

3 cups old-fashioned oats

1 1/2 tbsp. chia seeds

3 packets natural no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)

2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8" X 8" baking pan with nonstick spray.

HG Tip: For extra flavor, toast your pecans! Bring a skillet to medium heat, and cook and stir pecans until fragrant and lightly browned, about 3 minutes.
