flour (you can use white or whole wheat)
nuts (any nut will work, combinations of several nuts adds a nice flavor)
maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar
Step 1: Preheat the Oven
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2: Make Oat and Nut Flour

1 cup of wheat flour (all purpose or whole wheat)
1 teaspoon or baking soda
1 cup of maple syrup (or your favorite liquid sweetener)
