Cook: 35 minutes
3 cups old-fashioned oats
3 tbsp. powdered peanut butter or defatted peanut flour
1 1/2 tbsp. chia seeds
4 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Truvia)
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup (about 4 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
1 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8" X 8" baking pan with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, combine oats, powdered peanut butter/flour, chia seeds, sweetener, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
In a medium-large bowl, combine almond milk, applesauce, egg whites/substitute, peanut butter, and vanilla extract. Mix until uniform.
Add mixture in the medium-large bowl to the large bowl. Stir until uniform.
Gently fold in 1 1/2 tbsp. chocolate chips. Transfer the mixture to the baking pan, and smooth out the surface.
