First, cook the apples in a saucepan with the brown sugar (if using), cinnamon and water, until soft but still firm.  While the apples are cooking, grind 2 cups oats into flour. In a large bowl, place the oat flour, oats, oat bran, and flax-seed.  Mix well and add the eggs, almond milk, vanilla, agave (if using) and cinnamon.  Stir well then stir in the cooked apples.
