Dry ingredients
  • 3 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 5 cups brown sugar (loosely packed)
  • 5 teaspoons salt
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • 5 cups dry old-fashion oat

Liquid ingredients
  • 2 ½ cups extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 ½ cups natural peanut butter
  • 5 large eggs, beaten
  • 5 tablespoons milk (whole, 2 or 1%)
Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix together the liquid ingredients in another bowl.

Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the liquid ingredient. Mix until combined using a rubber spatula. The batter will be thick.

Press the mixture into a 9x9 square coated cake pan, if making one batch. Larger bake pans can be used for multiple batches.

Bake for 14 to 15 minutes or until the edges are browned. Up to 45 minutes for five batches.

Cool in the pan and cut into 8 servings per batch.
