Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix butter, sugars, eggs, vanilla, and apple sauce together until well-mixed. (Might take a little while if you do it by had, unless you melt the butter - make sure the clumps of butter are no larger than about half a pea.)

Mix flour, flaxseed, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and salt together in a second bowl. Add dry mixture to wet mixture and mix. Then fold in oatmeal, raisins, craisins, and walnuts.

Spray a 9" by 13" cake pan with PAM or similar. Put mix in to cake pan and smooth the top - mixture will be slightly lumpy. Cook in oven for about 30 minutes, or until toasted on top and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Variations:
-If you like cooking with splenda, you could substitute splenda for the sugar. It would cut out about 80 calories per serving.

-The butter and eggs could be replaced by vegan substitutes, like Ener-G and a vegetable spread, to make the recipe vegan.

-Try a decadent variation by increasing the sugar slightly and adding cocoa powder - I'll try this one next time and give more details next time!
