  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, oat milk, vanilla extract, and honey. These will be the wet ingredients.

  4. Combine both wet and dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined. You should have a batter consistency.

  5. Using a sharp knife, chop one apricot into small pieces and add these into the batter. Chop the almonds and pecans and add them as well.
