Recipe Created By: Carrie Black


1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup shortening or oil
2 eggs or equivalent replacement
1 1/3 cup wheat or oat flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Boil water and pour over oats. Let cool. Cream together sugars and shortening. Add eggs.

Sift (oat flour really needs to be sifted) in dry ingredients. Add oats.

Bake in a 9x13-inch pan at 350 °F for 30 minutes.

Oat flour works really well.

Can sub a safe oil for the shortening.

Any egg replacer will probably work well.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

Milk and Soy Substitutions: Alternative dairy-free milk beverages and products will work in most recipes. Find out more about milk substitutions and soy substitutions.

Egg Substitutions: There are many egg-free products and foods available to make your recipes free of eggs. Find out more about egg substitutions.

 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.
