  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • One cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour (I like to use Rubinfeld 70 per cent whole wheat)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries or chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F).
This is an extremely low tech recipe. You don’t need a mixer. You don’t even need a fork.
Dig your hands in and combine everything together like a toddler making a mud pie. Or better yet, give this job to one of your kids—not a toddler though unless you want your kitchen plus child splattered with sticky mandelbroit batter.
Once the batter is all mixed together shape it into two logs.
(Dear reader, take a moment to contemplate this wonderful fact—no spooning the batter out one cookie at time—isn’t that wonderful?)
Place them on baking trays coated with baking paper.
Bake 30-40 minutes.
Remove from oven. Cool slightly (10 minutes max or you’ll have mandel rocks) and slice with a sharp knife. If you like your sticks harder you can return to turned off oven after slicing. By the way, this freezes beautifully,
