Ashley
I was really in the mood for a wholesome, lightly sweetened, chai-spiced Oatmeal bar and I think this meets all of those requirements. The edges are crispy and the center chewy, just the way I like them.

Flax egg:

Dry Ingredients:

  • 3/4 C. Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • 1/2 t. Baking soda
  • 1/4 t. Sea salt
  • 1 3/4 t. Pumpkin pie spice I made my own from spices I had on hand

Instructions
 

  • For the flax egg, mix the flaxseed and water in a small bowl. Set it aside while you combine your other ingredients.
  • Combine the dry ingredients, including the whole wheat pastry flour, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and cardamom. Next, add the rolled oats and raisins.
  • In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients. These are the coconut oil, vegan butter, brown sugar, and vanilla powder.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined.
  • Place in the fridge for a few minutes to firm up before spreading in a parchment lined 8x8' baking dish.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees F.
  • They are done when slightly golden on the edges.
  • Cool before cutting into squares.
