Ingredients

  • 1 cup quick or whole oats (not instant)
  • 1 tablespoon flax seeds , whole (or 1 1/2 tbsp. ground flax)
  • 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (I used white whole wheat flour)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup 100% fruit juice (such as apple, berry, or pomegranate)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup pitted cherries , sliced
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly spray or wipe the bottom and sides of a 8 X 8-inch glass baking pan with oil or cooking spray. (You may use metal, but the baking time will vary.)
  • Put the oats and flax seeds into a blender and grind until they are fine. (If you are using ground flax, no need to grind it--just add it with the other dry ingredients.) Stir a couple of times to make sure that they’re uniformly ground.
  • Mix the oat flour with the other dry ingredients. Make a well in the middle, add the remaining ingredients, including cherries, and stir until moistened and completely combined, but don’t over-mix. Pour into the prepared pan (batter will be thick).
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes. Enjoy!
