    I was wondering if you could substitute the white flour with any other type of flour such as oat, almond or wheat flour? And instead of sugar could you use a substitute such as stevia or splenda?

  2. kathypatalsky says:

    Laura, you could I’m sure – but you will probably need to tweak the moisture amount to accommodate the added fiber from the wheat flour. Probably add in a few extra splashes of liquid like soy milk. And the same with the sugar. This recipe is wide open for tweaking if you feel comfortable doing so!

    Are the flax seeds ground or left whole?

  4. Sugar Free Diet says:

    Terrific! Been looking for this information , thanks for posting, sugar free diet.

  5. Jess says:

    Something is definitely off with this recipe. It’s much too wet, especially with a cup of applesauce. I had to add nearly another cup of whole wheat pastry flour and some more oats after the first batch came out of the oven, all spread over the pan, and which were difficult to remove. this is typical of a high moisture content recipe, but esp from applesauce. the flavor is good, but the recipe needs modification.
