• 2 heaping tablespoons blueberry preserves
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 cups rolled oats
• 1/4 cup raw unsweetened shredded dried coconut

2. Put the flaxseeds in a high-performance blending appliance and process into very fine flour. Put the bananas, Sucanat (or brown sugar), blueberry preserves and vanilla in a medium-sized bowl and mash with a potato masher or large fork into a chunky purée.
