  • Author: Liz Moody


  • Zest of 1 orange (peel and cut the orange wedges and freeze em for smoothies!)⁣
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar ⁣
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup ⁣
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (you can also sub avocado oil)⁣
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract ⁣
  • 3 tablespoons ground flax (remember to store ground flax in the freezer!)⁣
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats ⁣
  • 1 teaspoon fine grain salt ⁣
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom (you can also use cinnamon but cardamom just deserves more love in general)⁣
  • 1 cup shelled pistachios 


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a small bowl, pinch together the orange zest and the coconut sugar until they’re very well mixed. Add the maple syrup, oil, vanilla, and ground flax; stir and set aside for the flax to hydrate for 5 minutes. ⁣
  3. In another bowl, stir together the oats, salt, cardamom, and pistachios.
  4. Pour the liquid over the dry ingredients and stir until very well coated.
  5. Press into a single layer, about 1/2” thick, on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, then bake for 25 minutes, or until the edges are golden.
  6. Let cool on pan before breaking into big old clumps! Store in a tightly sealed container at room temp for a week or so.
