Vegan Ren-oaty Granola Cookies

I decided to recreate a granola cookie I once had in Sonoma from a cute little coffee shop. It was this fantastic oat-based cookie with honey and nuts and seeds. It was filling and tasty, but not vegan. So I thought I would try it at home with my modifications. I'm very, very pleased with how they came out. Please try this Ren-oaty Vegan Granola Cookie recipe at home.

Rice Syrup

I was wondering how you handle the rice syrup. The kind I use is troublingly thick and sticky and doesn't mix well with the other ingredients.

Owner's reply

Hmmm...Brown rice syrup is indeed very sticky. Perhaps try warming it a little? I just use a metal spoon to scoop it out of the cup measure and just mix and mix and mix... :) I hope this helps!

Hi, Margarine has milk protein. Either Whey or Casein. Did you find a specific brand that doesn't have either?

Hi there,

Earth Balance is vegan.

Ren-Oaty Granola Cookies

I've been looking for a good granola bar/cookie recipe for a long time and this one is good. Made it today and it tastes great. But I found the cooking time of 25 minutes way too long. They would have been burnt to a crisp by then. I'm wondering if the temperature was supposed to be 275 instead of 375 F as most granola recipes are cooked at a lower temperature. Also in your photo it looks like you've included almonds, but they are not listed in the ingredients. I love almonds and would like to include them. Do my eyes deceive me, or did you include almonds in yours? Thanks very much.

Owner's reply

Hiya - you know, I'm pretty sure those are pumpkin seeds and not almonds...but I love almonds too! If you add them let me know, I'm sure it'd be fantastic!

As for the temp, my oven is a bit wonky... I'll make them again soon and let you know...
