Instructions:

  1. Combine ground flax and water in a small bowl to create flax eggs. Mix well and let thicken. Add dates to a small bowl with hot water and let sit. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Blend oats in a blender to create oat flour. Add walnuts to food processor and process until crumb sized pieces form.

  4. Add dough to 2 loaf pans and form crust using your hands. Once crust is formed use back of a spatula to even it out and make it flat all around.
