  • Mix flour, white sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a large bowl. Stir in oats, cherries, walnuts, and pancake syrup. Make a well in the center; pour in applesauce, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Mix until dough comes together. Press dough into a 10x15-inch baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool before cutting into bars.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute brown sugar for the pancake syrup if desired.

If using sweetened applesauce, cut sweetened by 1/4 cup.

These were delicious! I was looking for a recipe to use up some dried cherries I had and found this one. I'm not vegan but my in-laws are and I'll definitely be making these cookies again for them. Read More
