3 cups rolled oats
1 cup 2 tablespoons brown rice flour
3/4 cups date sugar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/3 cup chopped dates
1/3 chopped pecans
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup safflower oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Lightly oil or line a baking sheet with parchment.
2. In a large bowl, combine oars, flour, sugar, salt, dates, and pecans. Mix thoroughly, using your hands to separate dates and mix ingredients. Stir in applesauce, oil, and vanilla, and mix well.
3. Spoon or scoop rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared sheet and flatten slightly into disks about 1/2 inch thick. Bake about 10 minutes, until edges begin to brown. Repeat with remaining dough.
