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 degrees F for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

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