Vegan one-bowl soft-baked orange cranberry oatmeal bars.  They’re sweetened with maple syrup and orange juice, and tart from the flavor-packed zest of a navel orange.  




  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F(180 C).
  2. Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper for easy removal, better cooling, and cutting.
  3. Mix the wet ingredients together, then add in the dry ingredients.  Mix thoroughly so everything is combined well.
  4. Pour into the prepared baking dish, smooth the oat mixture, and lightly press down making sure it’s even.
  5. Bake for 30-32 minutes or until the top firms up and has lightly browned.  It won’t be completely firm, it should give a little but not be goopy.
  6. If using parchment paper, cool for about 5 minutes, then lift out the oats bars to a cooling rack.  Otherwise, the bars might get soggy on the bottom. 
  7. Then cool completely, cut into 9 squares, and store any leftovers in the refrigerator.  They actually taste really good cold!
