  • 1 c oats quick cooking rolled
  • 3/4 c all-purpose flour unbleached
  • 1/3 c maple sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt fine

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine the oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
