Recipe Created By: Amy Hugon


1 cup boiling water
1 cup old fashioned oats (divided use)
1 1/4 cup sorghum flour
3/4 cup oat flour (divided use)
1 tsp xanthan gum
2 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 + 1/4 cup brown sugar (divided use)
1/2 cup applesauce
1 Tbsp cinnamon
4 Tbsp light margarine (we used Fleischmann's Light)

In bowl, combine boiling water and 1/2 cup oatmeal; set aside.

Separately, prepare topping. Squish together remaining 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/4 cup oat flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and margarine. You'll need to use your fingers at the end. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix all remaining ingredients except the apple. Stir in the soft oatmeal, then stir in the apple last.

Pan spray an 8x8" pan, and spoon in batter. Smooth batter. Sprinkle topping over batter.

Bake at 350 °F for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

This stays moist for 2-3 days if the cut ends are covered.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
