Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line the bottom of an 8x8-inch square pan with parchment paper, greasing the rest of the pan.
  2. Combine almond milk, flaxseed meal, and vinegar in a large mixing bowl and let rest for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, very finely chop your nuts. I used a food processor, but a mortar and pestle or knife would also work.
  4. Add oil, brown sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, allspice, and cinnamon to the mixture.
  5. Stir in flour, oats, and nuts. The mixture should be very thick.
  6. Spread the batter in the pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  7. Cool on a wire rack completely before slicing and serving.
