It isn’t original to me, nor is the name very original but it seems to be the craze right now. I changed mine up a bit and it was a little drier than the ones I have had but also more “breakfasty”, which is good, since it was breakfast. I think it’s because I completely skipped the brown sugar AND used stone ground whole wheat.
The original recipe is on Allrecipes(if you want to use it). I tweaked it a bit to this –
4 cups oats
2/3 cup flax seed meal
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cup stone ground whole wheat, fine
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup coconut oil/olive oil
3/4 cup dark chocolate morsels
Take 2 – I will actually tell you how much sugar I used this time. Sorry about that.
Instead of flax meal – I used wheat bran
add 1/2 cup raw sugar and 1/4 cup molasses (I’m a black strap molasses kind of girl) or 3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup chopped prunes instead of cranberries
Mix it all together.
Press into a baking dish (one size larger than a 9 x 13).
Bake at 350 until the edges are brown (approximately 30 minutes).
Let cool 10 minutes, then cut before they get too hard.
A friend made hers with dates. I think I will try that next time. I also am going to do half honey, half black strap molasses next time.
