A word about substituting eggs, this recipe uses a "flax egg" which is one tablespoon of flax meal and 3 tablespoons of water. Mix it in the liquid ingredient just like you would mix in the egg. Of course, you can use an egg if you want. The best thing about vegan baking is that you can eat the dough/batter! Talk about liberating. A healthy fear of salmonella was instilled in me at a young age and I must say that I have been enjoying the vegan chocolate chip cookie dough I've been making and I haven't been quite as diligent in scraping out the cake batter bowl as I have been in the past. Pretty fun!
Oatmeal Breakfast Squares
1 flax egg, see above (or use 1 egg)
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup rice milk (or whatever milk you use)
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup nuts
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine all ingredients and spread in a greased 8 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until lightly browned and set. Cool for a few minutes and cut into squares. I double this recipe and bake it in a 9 x 13 inch pan. You can add diced apples or any dried fruit you like.
I hope your family enjoys this as much as we have!
