These bars make me happy: they are vegan, slightly sweet, nutty, oaty, and very delicious!
They could be enjoyed as part of breakfast, a snack, or even for dessert. When I made these the first time, I enjoyed one for breakfast, one for an afternoon snack, and then one for dessert – they are that good!
I chose raw, shelled pistachios in this recipe because they are rich in antioxidants and minerals, and have no added salt. The pistachios complement the cranberries very well in this recipe.
These bars taste great as-is, but if you’re craving more sweetness, add a chocolate drizzle or a layer of chocolate on top. – Go wild & treat yo’ self.
I made these two ways: as bars and as cookies. See notes below if you’re feeling more of a cookie rather than a bar; either way, you will still enjoy these.
If you go with making the bars; I highly recommend adding crush pistachios and flaked sea-salt on-top. The bars might be a little crumbly too, so it’s important to let the bars cool completely before removing them from the pan. If you do have some crumble, think “hello granola.”
I hope you love these Cranberry Pistachio Oat Bars! They are the perfect treat and a great on-the-go snack!
Require 7-ingredients and less than 20-minutes to make! Enjoy!
Until next time friends, Namaste. ♥
