Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C)

 

2 tbsp brown sugar

 

Mix in a bowl and set aside.

2 apples, cut in thin slices

 

¼ cup chia seeds

 

Mix in another bowl and set aside for 10 minutes to give chia seeds time to form a gel.

2 cups almond milk

3 tbsp maple syrup

½ lemon peel, zested

¼ tsp salt

 

Grease 8x8 inch casserole dish. Place apples on the bottom of the dish in an even layer. Pour oat/chia mixture on top. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
