In a bowl combine wet ingredients:
1/2 c butter, melted
3/4 cup brown brown rice syrup (maple syrup, or agave – you can also mix two different natural sweetners. For instance, 1/2 cup brown rice syrup and 1/4 cup maple syrup. If using molasses, use in part and combine with something else)
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
Mix all wet ingredients and put to the side.
In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients:
3 cups old-fashioned oatmeal (for a different texture, one cup of steel cut oats may be substituted for the Old Fashioned oats)
¼ cup flax seeds, ground or whole
2 tsp baking powder (non aluminum is best)
1 tsp salt (sea salt or celtic salt are always best, )
Mix dry ingredients and slowly add wet ingredients to this mixture.
After the wet and dry ingredients are mixed together, I add two cups of fresh or frozen berries. You may choose to add other substitutions: such as 1 cup cranberries, 1 cup pecans, add cinnamon to taste, and 1 tsp vanilla.
To substitute for the eggs, I have found that 1/4 cup applesauce, plus a couple Tbsp of juice help.
Bake at 350 for 45 mins until golden on top and sides. This recipe doubles really well. If doubling, don’t double the salt.
