These vegan cranberry orange oatmeal cookie sticks are slightly crunchy and the perfect combo of sweet and tart. Plus, they're super simple and ready in about 30 minutes.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup + 4-6 tbsp light spelt flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • a pinch of salt
  • ½ tsp citrus zest (optional)
  • ½ cup coconut oil, softened but not melted
  • ⅓ cup agave nectar
  • 1 full dropper orange blossom TeaZen*
  • 2 tbsp steel cut oats
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F, line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper and set aside
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 cup spelt flour, baking soda, salt, and zest
  3. Cream the coconut oil until light and fluffy then add in the agave and TeaZen and beat together until well combined
  4. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and continue to beat with an electric mixer until moist cookie dough clumps begin to form. If the batter looks to wet, add more flour 1 tbsp at a time, but no more than 6 tbsp extra
  5. Gently fold the oats and cranberries into the batter
  6. Transfer to prepared baking dish and press evenly into the pan with your fingertips
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean
  8. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely. Will firm up as it cools
  9. Once cooled, remove from the pan and slice into 12 'sicks'
  10. Serve with coffee, tea or dairy-free milk
Notes
*Can sub ¼ tsp orange extract if you don't have orange blossom TeaZen on hand
