Carrot-Oatmeal Bars

1 cup wheat flour, bran removed
1 cup rolled oats
2 tablespoons egg replacer
1 tablespoon cream of tarter
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cardamom (optional-hard to find spice)

4 tablespoons soy margarine
3 tablespoons brown rice syrup
1/4 cup soymilk
3-4 medium carrots, cleaned and chopped

3/4 cup raisins

Preheat the oven to 350. Lightly grease a glass pie plate or 9" square
baking pan with soy margarine. In a bowl, combine the flour, oats, egg
replacer, cream of tarter, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and cardamom
and mix well. In a small saucepan, melt the margarine with the brown
rice syrup. Put in a blender with the soymilk and blend. Add the carrots
to the blender a few pieces at a time until all the carrots are grated
in the mixture. Pour the blender mixture into the dry ingredients and
mix well. Work in the raisins- batter will be thick. Press into the 
baking pan. Bake until browned- about 35 minutes. Let cool 5-10 minutes
before serving.
