After I've made this recipe so many more times, I recommend  these changes: only 2 tbs of flax with 6 tbs hot water is needed (I have no idea why I used so much, but you can use more if you want), 3 cups flour, 4 is way too much, and 1 1/2 cups oats. They will also seem too soft when they are actually done (golden around the edges).
