  • 1 cup oats
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat flour or barley flour
  • 1/2 cup oat milk or water
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup raisins and/or other dried fruit of your choice
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  2. Toast oats until golden brown. Watch carefully so they don’t burn.
  3. While oats are toasting, mix remaining ingredients, in order of ingredients list, in a medium bowl. Add toasted oats and mix well.
  4. Put 10 to 12 tablespoons of dough on a nonstick baking sheet and flatten with the back of a fork.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, or until slightly golden on the edges. Check often to prevent burning.
