Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon tahini (80 g) (Raw or toasted tahini will work)
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter (80 g) (with no added sugars or oils, mine only has salt)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle chile pepper spice
  • 2-3 tablespoons Bragg's liquid aminos (45 mL) (I used 3 because I wanted it to stand out in the noodles. Start with 2 and adjust to taste)
  • 2-3 teaspoons coconut vinegar or rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar (this is optional, but it does give it a nice tang)
  • 3 tablespoons agave (63 g)
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 6 tablespoons of above prepared sauce
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats (80 g)
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon raw sesame seeds (optional, but gives a little extra flavor and presentation)
  • Do NOT use regular soy sauce in place of the liquid aminos, it will be way too salty. If you can't or don't find the liquid aminos, you can try subbing tamari. Also, I know the chipotle chile pepper is unusual, but trust me, it is worth it! It gives a smoky heat, that is so different than cayenne or red pepper, so try to use it. It is located in the spice isle at any grocery.
