Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats (1 cup whole, 1/2 cup ground up)
  • 1 cup of Kutaan’s cricket flour
  • 2-3 bananas (1 cup mashed or 1 cup apple sauce)
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4-1/3 cup maple syrup (add more or less depending what kind of sweet tooth you have)

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
