Ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 ounces dried cranberries
  • 6 ounces unsalted almonds
  • 1/3 cup cashew butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 tablespoons melted Earth Balance
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a 9x9 brownie pan with parchment paper and lightly grease with either cooking spray or Earth Balance.
  • Use a food processor to coarsely chop the almonds and cranberries. The bars hold together better when the pieces are smaller.
  • In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
  • In a smaller bowl, combine wet ingredients except for the cashew butter.
  • Combine the wet ingredients into the dry along with the cashew butter. Stir well to make sure everything is evenly combined.
  • Move ingredients into the greased pan. Use plastic wrap to firmly press the mixture down evenly so that it's in the corners and flat on top.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes. Look for browning around the edges.
  • After removing from the oven, allow to cool in the pan for 20 minutes on a cooling rack, then finish cooling in the refrigerator until chilled.
  • Use a knife or bench scraper to make 9 bars. Wrap individually and chill.
