Chocolate Peanut Butter Oat Bars

If you know me, you know that I am a sweet person and that breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.

Therefore, I am always looking for new healthy vegan breakfast ideas that are quick and easy to make and preferably gluten-free.

These chocolate peanut butter oat bars are exactly what I was craving the other day – they are SO good, sweet and satisfying it’s hard to believe they are healthy and refined sugar-free.

I mean, don’t you just want to eat your screen right now?

Healthy, Vegan and Gluten-Free Oat Bars

Honestly, I didn’t expect these bars to taste so good considering that they don’t contain any oil, vegan butter, refined sugar or gluten (make sure to use gluten-free oats if you’re intolerant).

Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised when my parents took a bite and said “Oh boy! That’s really good!”.

Now, my parents are very easy to please – especially when there is chocolate involved – but my dad has a big sweet tooth so him loving these refined sugar-free bars is a huge success.

These Bars are Perfect as an On-The-Go Snack or Breakfast

These bars are a great healthy and filling on-the-go breakfast or snack idea. You can roll them up in parchment paper or any kind of wrapping you like and take them with you to school, college or work, just like my dad did.

They also make a great at-home breakfast/snack – my mom will agree on this one! They are very filling and a bit crunchy, and the best part is when you bite on a chocolate chip that melts in your mouth! 😀

    those look awesome!! but i’m not big on using bananas due to the environmental impact – is there something else i could use in place of it?

      Hi Jacquie! You can easily substitute it with apple sauce (50 g). Let me know if you give my recipe a try 🙂

    These are the first “dessert” I’ve made since switching to whole food plant based eating 2 months ago. I made these for my “birthday cake.” My husband and son are enjoying them during the day, too. I may play with the ingredients to balance the macronutrient content.

    Does “non-dairy milk” mean almond milk? Thank you.

    • November 18, 2019 / 7:27 am

      Non-dairy milk simply means milk that doesn’t come from cows.
      You can use any plant milk for this recipe, such as almond milk, soy milk, cashew milk, oat milk, hazelnut milk, rice milk and more!
      I hope this helps 🙂
