Marbled Mix-Up Oatmeal Squares

3/4 Cup Flour of choice (I used Whole Wheat Pastry)
1/2 teaspoons soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil or Earth Balance
3 TBSP Sugar
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 TBSP ground Flax seed
3 TBSP water
1 Cup Oatmeal
1 Cup Vegan chips of choice/or dried fruit/nut/chip combo of choice

Grease 9 x 13 pan, pre-heat oven to 350. Place flax seed in water and set aside. In mixing bowl combine oil/Earth Balance, sugars, vanilla. Add flax mixture. Mix in soda, salt, flour. Finally add the oatmeal.

Scrape mixture into pan. Then sprinkle topping combo (i.e. semi-sweet with dried cranberry, or just semi-sweet, semi-sweet and white, etc.) over the batter. Place in oven and bake for 2 or 3 minutes. Remove from oven, run knife up and down lengthwise, then widthwise, through chocolate/chips/topping and batter, making marbled swirls. Place back in oven, finish baking for 12 or so minutes. Cool. Cut into 24 squares.
