Thank you so much! This was delicious and SO easy to make! I used a coarse corn meal, like you, and blended it a little with the oats into a coarse flour like you suggested. It had a hearty crumb and just one slice was so satisfying and delicious. I served it with vegan 3 bean chili. I cook almost entirely from scratch and I rarely add salt to recipes, but I tend to like a bit of salt to complement the sweetness of baked goods, so I added 1/2 tsp of salt to the recipe. Other than that I didn’t change a thing. As a variation, next time I might add finely minced jalapeño and red pepper along with the corn to make a Southwest corn bread. Your recipe is going to be a regular in our home this fall to go along with soups and chilis. Thanks again 🙂

I made this without the peanut butter since I don’t keep any nut butters on hand, too tempting. I did add chia seed to the flax for additional thickening.

Thanks for sharing this. I have a son with a nut allergy and was wondering what to try

I was wondering if I could substitute any other sweetener for the dates like maybe maple syrup or agave This looks incredible!

I have now made this three days in a row. On the first day, I followed the recipe exactly. It was delicious!

Day 2 I added reasons, and I did not grind up the oatmeal.

Day 3 I blended the oats really fine, and I added in a lot of frozen bananas, as well as reasons. I spread these thin Lee, and they ended up as cookies.

I’d like to make these into blueberry cornbread muffins. Could someone that may be reading this please tell me if they have tried adding anything so juicy to this recipe, and what modifications should I make to the recipe?

I made this without the added corn as I realized I was out after I started. It was very dry. Next time I will be sure to only make with the corn. I am sure that was my problem. It also wasn’t as tasty as I hoped but again missing corn!
