I love this recipe because you can easily substitute the flax for bran, depending on whatever you have in the pantry. You can also add 1/2 cup of raisins, 1 cup of blueberries or 1 cup of blackberries instead of the strawberries.
I get my 8 year old involved, who wants to be baker when she grows up. The bonus in helping her Mum is she gets to lick the bowl while they bake!
