Recipe Notes

This is a versatile and flexible recipe.  Try substituting ingredients to make this your own!  Try replacing Xylitol with Sugar, Coconut Sugar with Brown Sugar, Raisins with Cranberries, or Butter with Pumpkin Puree in equal quantities!

Different brands of oatmeal will absorb moisture and bake differently.  For non-Gluten Free Quaker Oatmeal, use 3 cups of Oatmeal instead of 4 cups.  Quantity may need to be adjusted for other brands.
