Ingredients
  • 1 cup oats
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 4 tbsp crystallized ginger
  • ⅔ cup soy protein isolate
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • ¼ tsp cloves
  • 5 tbsp molasses
  • ⅔ cup packed soft pitted dates
  • 2 tbsp nondairy milk
  • ½ tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ cup dried cranberries or raisins, packed
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine oats, chopped nuts, soy protein, flax seed, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and crystallized ginger.
  3. Use a blender to blend together molasses, dates, nondairy milk, and coconut oil.
  4. Add the blended date mixture to your dry ingredients, and mix. Once it's completely combined, begin breaking up the mixture with your hands.
  5. Spread out onto a thick cookie sheet (or double up and stack two together) fitted with a piece of parchment paper.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, and stir. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, and stir. Bake for 5 minutes, turn off the oven, and open the oven door a crack. Leave for an additional 5 - 10 minutes, or until toasted and lightly crunchy. Watch closely, it burns easily!
  7. Allow to cool on cookie sheet. Mix in the cranberries or raisins, and store in an airtight container.
