  • The bread can be stored in an airtight container in room temperature for up to 3 days or in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • Chocolate chips are optional but highly recommended! I used sugar-free ones to keep this recipe low sugar.
  • Feel free to substitute coconut sugar with any other dry sweetener of choice.
  • Feel free to substitute olive oil with another oil. If using coconut oil, melt it before mixing it with the other wet ingredients.
  • If gluten-intolerant, make sure you buy rolled oats that are certified gluten-free.
