NOTES

  1. *If you don’t have oat flour, you can replace the oat flour with 1/3 cup gluten-free oats. Bake an additional 5 – 10 minutes. It will be a little on the denser side. But still chewy and yummy!
  2. You can make your own oat flour by blending the rolled oats in a high-speed blender.
  3. ** To make flax “eggs”, mix 2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds and 4 tablespoons of filtered water or dairy-free milk. Let it sit for 10 minutes to “gel” up.
  4. ***If you prefer sweeter, add 1 – 2 extra tablespoon of coconut sugar.
