No bake breakfast bars – Gluten free, vegan

These no bake breakfast bars are to die for. Done in just 15 minutes are gluten free, vegan and great for of the go. A winner healthy recipe.


How awesome do this no bake breakfast bars look? My husband loves these and tells me I need to keep making them 24/7. They are quick to make, since you don’t have to bake them, and pretty much you just have to add everything in your mixer and mix through.

For this version I didn’t add protein powder but I will add it to the next batch I make. Each bar has about 14 grams of protein but my husband would like to have more so that he can stop buying store bought protein bars that are loaded with sugar. I shall do next time I make them for sure.

You can also swap any of the nuts and dried fruit if you like as well as skip the melted chocolate drizzle. The bars aren’t that sweet and dark chocolate isn’t that sweet either so I figured I made them prettier with the drizzle. It is optional!

On another note, many of you know that I just finished school back in December refreshing some science courses I took when I was in undergraduate school, I think that was almost 20 years ago, ouch!

Well I am in the in the stages of applying for physician assistant school. The applications are a bit insane. I mean, it has taken me for ever to gather all the required materials and complete everything that it is asked for. Such a competitive field as well.

I will know between March and April if I have made it for the interview, so please send positive vibes my way, I really need them. I have worked my behind really hard for the past 8 months so I hope it pays off!!

Anyhow, I leave you with these amazing no bake breakfast bars that are great for on the go, breakfast, as a snack or for when ever you like. I gathered all my ingredients from They have an array of great products, especially when it comes to nuts and dried fruit. One of my favorite places to get my nut ingredients.

  1. Peanut butter and oatmeal….good match! I love it.

  2. How did the next batch turn out when you bumped up the peanut butter and left out the butter?

  3. Anonymous,

    I have not been able to make another batch just yet and keep experimenting on this recipe but when I do I will post the result :-)

    Thanks for checking my blog

  4. I just made these, and although the taste is fabulous, the dough was very dry & crumbly. The cookies fell apart when I took them out of the oven as well. I didn’t use butter, just the extra peanut butter like you were thinking of trying. I think I will retry the recipe and sub in honey for one of the sugars. Seems like that would have more holding power.
    They ARE very very tasty, though, and I’m determined to make them work :)

  5. Anonymous,

    I am so sorry the cookies didn’t work for you. I hope they didn’t go to waist, I hate trowing food away :-(

    Make sure you don’t over cook them for even one minute. Also, I think the honey will work fabulously as a substitution, and like you said, the dough may hold better for you :-)

    Let me know how they turn out.
    I am going to also try to make them next week and see how it goes by doing something different and see if the dough improves. If I get to make it again I will let you know by posting the ingredient alterations on the blog.

  6. Hi!
    Thanks so much for your swift reply! The cookies are still good even if they’re quite fragile.
    I will certainly try them again only using the honey instead of the white sugar. I really love the idea of not using any butter at all. I also used all natural peanut butter so not sure if that makes any difference.
    I only baked them for 6 minutes and that seemed perfect.
    Anyway, thanks again. I love this site and am looking forward to testing more of your recipes.

  7. O.k., so I made these again, only this time I subbed in honey for the white sugar. The texture was much better; the cookies held together and stayed together. The taste is compromised a bit on account of the honey so I think next time around I’ll not use so much honey, maybe use some butter. It’s fun playing with the recipe anyway. It’s all good :)

  8. i used apple sauce instead of the oil and creamy peanut butter – omg these are good!

  9. Earlier today I searched for “oatmeal cookies” on Foodgawker and when I saw this picture, I thought, “Whose are these?! Such a pretty picture.” And then it was you! True story. :D

  10. Texanerin, cool thanks!
    I have not made these ones in for ever. I need to experiment with the recipe and make them better, I hope they are not to dry!!
