You just MUST try this recipe! Malcolm, my gorgeous hubby, is trying to eat healthier. But like me, he has a sweet tooth and likes nice sweet bars/biscuits with coffee/tea as snacks. For the past 9 years of our marriage, I have been making him my usual oat crunchie recipe. It is a very good recipe, but full of butter and sugar…..
I was delighted to find this recipe which is vegan, super quick to make and uses coconut oil instead of butter! Coconut oil is the only plant source that contains a load of saturated fat. The saturated fat from coconut oil, however, is not the same as the artery clogging saturated fat that you find in animal products. Coconut oil contains a special kind of fat called medium chain triglycerides which do not have the same harmful effects – quite the contrary! Research is showing many benefits to the consumption of this oil to the point where it is now viewed as a superfood!
Play around with this recipe by substituting vegan chocolate chips or other dried/glazed fruit/chopped dates into the mixture instead of cranberries. For strict vegans who do not eat honey, substitute honey with agave syrup.
Go now! Make some!
