{CHERRY CHOCOLATE CHIP SNACK BARS}


Another variation on breakfast bars:

1 1/2 c. oats
1 1/2 c. shredded wheat cereal
1 1/2 c. cashews
1 1/4 c. dates
3/4 t. cinnamon
3/4 t. salt

1 1/4 c. dried cherries
3/4 c. vegan chocolate chips

1/3 c. water
1 1/2 T. egg replacer powder
1/2 c. honey
1/2 T. vanilla

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Place first ingredients and 3/4 c. dried cherries in food processor.  (If you don't have a large-capacity processor, you may need to do this in 2 parts.)
  • Process until finely chopped.
  • Add remaining 1/2 c. cherries and the chocolate chips, and process until they're the size you want.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together water through vanilla.
  • Add oat mixture and stir to combine.
  • Transfer to a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish, and lightly press flat.
  • Bake on 350 for 20 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
  • Allow to cool completely before cutting and serving. (They're even better chilled in the fridge or freezer.)

i have to finally comment. (and sorry i haven't sooner) i love your blog and love you ladies! i became vegan the minute i finished reading 'the china study' about a year and a half ago. that's also when i found your blog and you've taught me a lot of things. i have my own little blog, where i have posted some of your recipes. it is fun to find people like me! i have 3 sisters and one brother (although none except my mom has gone to a plant-based diet.) i am also lds and i am vegan for health reasons. thanks and keep posting please!
