2: Add you wet ingredients in a separate bowl (wet ingredients are your eggs, almond milk, maple syrup, applesauce and vanilla extract) Mix well.
3: Combine your dry ingredients into your bowl of wet ingredients and mix together into a nice batter.
4: Pour your batter into an 8x8 Baking Pan and you can make a couple of baked oatmeals for one in individual ramekins with the remaining batter.
