  6. 1/2 cup mashed avocado
  7. 1 flax egg (1 Tbsp ground flax + 3 Tbsp water)
  1. Heat the oven to 350F.
  2. If using oats, blend the oats until they turn into a flour. Add the baking soda to the mixer and continue to mix.
  3. In a bowl, combine the flax and water and allow to thicken for a few minutes.
  4. Add the pitted dates, hot water, mashed avocado, peanut butter, and flax egg to the mixer. Blend until all the ingredients are combined and form a dough.
