If you need to make this gluten free, use certified gluten free oats. I used the jumbo oats from Flavahans, they are just perfect for this recipe, because they are thick, delicious and give the bar the perfect texture.  I love Flavahans product, and here is my clean oat bread using their porridge oats.  It’s so  nice and delicious, I received such great feedback on it, so give it a go.

Healthy breakfast bar recipe 5If you don’t like raisins feel free to use cranberries, sultanas, dried apricots or dates. They all work well and add an extra touch of sweetness.

These bars are a brilliant breakfast on the go, or afternoon pick me up, healthy treat. Make them the night before and pack a couple in your bag to get you through the morning rush.

        Is it really a “175” degree oven?

            for this recipe would I use quick cooking oats, old fashioned oats, steel cut oats, or would any work? 🙂

    Wow! I would have definitely expected there to be far more ingredients in these bars. Only 3 ingredients! That makes these so much better! This is just my kind of breakfast bar. Super yummy! Sharing 😉

    Yum, always love a quick and easy bar for busy mornings! We make a similar thing, but serve them up as cookies. Will have to try this breakfast bar version – my hubby always appreciates having something to grab on his way to work on early mornings

    Quick question – What is the shelf life of these bars? Do they need to be refrigerated? I travel a lot. I am wondering I will be able to pack a few of them for 3-4 days?

    My kids really don’t like raisins/dried fruit. Does the recipe work without them? Or can you suggest any substitutes?

    I made the bars this morning was worried the mix would crumble when cooked but was perfect. I also sprinkled some coconut on top! My 6 year old keeps asking for more! Will be making them again

      yes, you can, but not a lot. You can add some nice natural flavouring to help to cover up the taste xx
