Meatless Monday - Wholesome Oat Snackles

These "snackles" are healthy enough for snack, but so delicious they can pass as a treat or dessert.  I love that they are low in added sweetener and oil - and that I had everything on hand to make the recipe!  Adapted from a recipe found in the Let Them Eat Vegan cookbook.



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In large bowl combine:

1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup flour
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 Tbs Chia seeds (optional)
1/2 cup pecans
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
few pinches of freshly ground nutmeg

Mix well.  Add
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (or 1/2 cup ripe mashed banana)
2 Tbs honey
3 Tbs nondairy milk
1 Tbs grapeseed oil

Stir until well mixed.  Take 1 1/2 Tbs mounds of batter and transfer to baking sheet.  Bake for 16-18 minutes, let  cool on pan and then transfer to cooling rack.  Enjoy!

Great as a healthy snack or to pack in lunches and easy enough for the kids to make!

  1. These sound great! I was just thinking how I want to make something for the kids for an upcoming road trip--this will be perfect!

  2. Yum! I need to make these! I wonder if I could use a different kind of oil instead of grapeseed (it's the only think I don't have, offhand).

    1. Any mild/neutral oil would work - avocado, almond, canola.

  3. Hard to believe these are not straight up cookies!
