They look delightful Joy, gonna try them soon. Just don’t have oat bran in the cupboard!

If you don’t have oat bran you can blitz up oats in your food processor 🙂

Can’t wait to try it. Do you have a brand of dried cranberries you can recommend? I have only found sugar-loaded. Also, is oat bran GF?

I don’t have a brand I recommend really, I just buy unsweetened cranberries from my local health food store in bulk. Oats and oat bran are kind of a grey area. To be labelled GF they have to be processed in a facility that does not process any gluten-containing foods. If you’re not gluten-sensitive I wouldn’t worry about buying GF oats or oat bran. But yes, you can find GF Oat Bran. Bob’s Red Mill brand has GF oat bran.

I made these with a flax egg and they worked and tasted like a dream. I also added some fresh cranberries, coconut, and vanilla to the batter. So yummy and sweet enough despite only having a bit of maple syrup to sweeten :).

Sounds like some delicious additions! The only reason I didn’t add any oil or vanilla was because I felt like my ingredients list was getting too long, so I’m glad you added them because I would normally put those two things in!

I can’t wait to make these – but I don’t have medium eggs, how much will larger eggs affect the recipe?

I’m sure it will be fine 🙂 Enjoy!

Since the cranberries are unsweetened, I think I’ll jusr use fresh ones 🙂

Sounds like a delicious idea! They should be in season very soon too 🙂

Great!! Let me know how you  like it! 

Joy McCarthy

You could use brown rice flour. I’ve had someone already try that out and it worked!

Joy McCarthy

No it’s not. Oat bran is the bran only of the oat grain. It has more fibre. If however you don’t have any oat bran, you could sub in my oat flour and it will still work. 

Joy McCarthy

The texture would be very different once you cook the oats, so I’m not sure it would work without a bunch of subs. If you try it, please do let me know how it turns out!

Joy! Thank you for sharing this recipe today. It was a MAJOR life saver for me this morning. I am always looking for snacks and breakfasts that are higher in fiber and lower in sugar for blood sugar levels to be maintained. This was AMAZING for that!! I didn’t have any oat bran so I used the blended oat version that you suggested. I also didn’t have any dried berries of any kind so I substituted some crumbled dried apples and it worked out great with the cinnamon and nutmeg. My son is so picky and frowns upon less sweet snack but he gave a thumbs up Joy to this one!! Keep posting your goodness and bringing JOY to others!

My pleasure! Hurray! I’m so happy to hear this one was a winner with your son and that those substitutions you made totally worked. Thanks for taking the time to post a nice comment 🙂

I don’t normally freeze them because they typically get gobbled up within one week 🙂

You could use maple syrup. Enjoy!
