Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled (not instant) oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoon flax meal (optional)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup dried fruit

Directions

I used a 4 quart oval crockpot. You're baking this, but no need to vent the lid of the crock; keep all the moisture in.

Mix all the ingredients together in the crockpot. I dumped in all the dry stuff, then added the melted butter and milk. Stir well with a spoon. Make sure the baking powder gets dispersed evenly.

Cover and cook on low for 3-5 hours, checking every so often. This is done when the edges are brown and are beginning to crust, and the center is set. An inserted knife should come out clean. (Mine took about 4 hours and 15 minutes).

Let it sit in the cooling crockpot for at least an hour before attempting to cut. The longer you let it sit, the more set and brownie-like the pieces will be.
