Pepita Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Bars

I met Susmitha through a Vegan Facebook Group, the Vegan Temptivists. There’s some crazy good food going down in that group and it’s really fun to see what everyone comes up with and “brings to the facebook table” from all around the world. The best part of belonging to that group though, has been getting to know Susmitha, she lives in India, she’s a sweet little firecracker with a fun and vivacious personality. I’m sure if we ever get to meet in real life, there would be no awkwardness, we’d simply hit it off, like we’ve always been friends.

When she asked me to do a guest post in the month of February, of course I was delighted and immediately thought of something to share with my Valentine and with you. Head on over to visit Susmitha at Veganosaurus and to nab this very special recipe by clicking on the link below:

In the Pan

p.s. If your sweet prefers dark chocolate chips and chopped pecans, go ahead and sub em’ out for the raisins and pepitas for a bar that beats the pants off my other most famous bar on this blog.. I promise it won’t hurt my feelings.

xoxo & Happy Valentines,

Love, Somer

    your cookies looking so delicious…I want to eat:)

  2. So great to have you over on my blog today, Somer. Thanks so much for the delicious recipe! :)

    I feel the same way too. When we meet, we’re going to totally have a blast! :)

  3. I am not a vegan but this look lovely and I will be making these as a treat for work! Gems

  4. This recipe looks gorgeous…still on the challenge though so it might have to wait a bit till I am less likely to be tempted back to my non nutrient ways till I try it :)

  5. I wondered where you’d gotten to! You were over at Susmitha’s ;-)! On my way over to snag this recipe.

  6. Did you see Susmitha’s interview with Gigi? Probably so! Sweet little firecracker is right! She won me over right away with her quick wit and kind spirit. I’m heading over to check out these bars! They look divine!

  7. They sound and look fantastic Somer!
    Happy Valentine day to you <3

  8. i am going to make these with dark chocolate and cranberries.. i think hubbs has had enough super healthy cookies lately and he associates raisins with them. he looks at me like.. can we have some high fat high sugar stuff:) and then when i make some he takes it to office and everyone eats them but him.. that is why i send the low fat low sugar stuff with him to office too ;)

    • Richa! Dark chocolate and cranberries sounds divine. I think we all get tired of the super healthy cookies and need a splurge once in a while. I usually try to bake with pure maple syrup or agave, but organic sugar isn’t very refined and sugar is sugar is sugar, right? ;) However, these cookies are still lower sugar and oil than most, so they’re not too bad.

  9. These look so indulgent, Somer! I love the pepita seeds- such a great idea for oatmeal cookie style bars. :-) I’m heading over to check them out now!

  10. Looking amazing Somer! Love the idea of adding the chocolate & nuts too :) Happy Valentines Day!

    Yes Happy Valentines from you crazy animal rights blog follower. :-)

  12. I love making bars because rolling out cookies is so time consuming. I really like the idea of cranberries and dark chocolate, a favorite pairing of mine. ;)
