Oat flour is easy -- just grind the oats in your clean, dry food processor until they're ground enough to look like fine flour. Pour it out, measure to make sure you have enough, and use as you would 'normal' wheat flour. I had considered skipping the step to soak the raisins, but I'm glad I didn't. Next time I plan to soak them for longer, to really soften them up.
Again, if the recipe isn't sweet enough for you, consider adding more dried fruits: dried cherries or cranberries might work well. Try it out. There's nothing to lose but the sugar.
