This is an altered recipe that I made vegan. They turned out fluffy and delicious.
- 1 1/2 Cups oatmeal
- 1 Cup all purpose flour
- 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 Teaspoon salt
- 1 Cup orange juice
- 1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 Cup vegetable oil
- 1 Over ripe banana
- 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 Cup walnuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 13×9 pan with cooking spray.
Combine oatmeal, flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In a food processor, add the walnuts, 1/4 cup of the orange juice and the banana. Chop until there are no more large chunks of walnuts. Pour the mixture into a seperate bowl. Add the oil, vanilla extract, remaining orange juice and the sugar. Mix until well combined. Pour the mixture into the flour mixture. Fold until well combined.
Pour the mixture into the pan and spread with a spatula. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the sides pull away from the pan.
You can omit the walnuts and add dried fruit instead, or add both.
To make regular (not vegan) add one egg instead of the banana.
Once you spread the mixture in the pan, sprinkle oatmeal on top then bake.
