This recipe is from relishmag.com/glutenfree.  It can also be found along with many other gluten-free recipes on the blog, glutenfreegirl.blogspot.com.  The baking time did take a little longer than 25 minutes.  Also I made my own oat flour by grinding whole oats in a coffee grinder.  This recipe is absolutely delicious and could not tell that is was gluten-free.  Yumm!
