Cranberry & Orange Bars (with a sweet citrus icing)

These cranberry and orange bars are a real dream! They are festive at will and on your table for the holidays; they will be all the rage and will fly away quickly!

Ingredients (32 bars)

5 tbsp Vegan margarine, softened
¾ cup Brown sugar
1 tsp Vanilla extract
⅓ cup Orange juice
Zest of ½ orange

1 ½ tsp Baking powder
Pinch of salt
3 tbsp Vegan Pro - Maple Vanilla
1 ¾ cup All-purpose flour
1 cup Dried cranberries

Icing
1 cup Powdered sugar
2 ½ tbsp Orange juice
1 tbsp Orange zest

Method

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 350 °F (180 °C) and line a 9 x 13-inch pan with parchment paper. Reserve.
  2. Soften the vegan margarine in the microwave for 20 seconds. Add the brown sugar and vanilla extract, and mix vigorously with a whisk. Add the orange juice and zest. Mix again.
  3. In a small bowl, blend all the dry ingredients together from the baking powder to the all-purpose flour.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix just enough to incorporate, then add the dried cranberries. Mix one last time to integrate.
  5. Spread the preparation uniformly (with the back of a fork or your fingers) in the prepared pan, then bake for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, make the icing.

Icing

  1. Sift the powdered sugar into a small bowl, then add the orange juice and zest. Blend until smooth.
  2. When your bars are cooked and unmold, let cool completely before glazing.
  3. Leave to set and cut into 16 squares. Cut each of these squares in half (to form triangles).
  4. Enjoy immediately!

*Store them at room temperature in an airtight container
