INGREDIENTS FOR CRANBERRY OATMEAL BARS (VEGAN):
- Quick-Cooking Oats
- Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, or No-Nut Butter of Choice
- Cacao Powder
- Maple Syrup or Agave Syrup
- Coconut Oil
- Vanilla Extract
- Ground Flaxseed
- Chia Seeds

KITCHEN EQUIPMENT I USED:
- ¼ cup cranberries
- 1 cup quick-cooking oats
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- ½ cup maple syrup or agave syrup
- ½ cup peanut butter, almond butter, or no-nut butter of choice
- 1 tbsp cacao powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup crispy rice cereal, corn flakes or cripsy cereal of choice
- 1 ½ tsp ground flaxseed
- 1 ½ tsp chia seeds
- ¼ cupshredded coconut
- To make cranberry oatmeal bars, first, line an 8 x 8-inch pan with parchment paper.
- In a saucepan over medium heat, melt coconut oil. Add maple syrup (or agave), nut butter, and whisk to combine.
- Add cacao and bring to a simmer for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly. Do NOT boil!
- Remove from heat.
- Add oats, vanilla, crispy cereal, flax seeds, chia seeds, and shredded coconut and mix.
- Transfer to an 8×8-inch baking dish, and spread out evenly. Sprinkle cranberries over the top.
- Cover with a piece of parchment or plastic wrap and press firmly. This step ensures they do not crumble, so really press. You can use a glass to do this if you need some help.
- Allow the bars to cool in the fridge overnight or for at least 60 mins for form.
- To cut into cranberry oatmeal bars, use the paper to lift the solid block, and cut into bars (I was able to make 12 bars).
- Keep in the fridge in a container for up to 5 days or freezer for up to 1 month.
