No Bake Oat Bars

Prep Time 10 min Serves 9     adjust servings

Only a few simple ingredients to make these healthy bars!


  • 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 15 Medjool dates , pits removed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Jam of choice (I used raspberry)


  1. In a food processor , add the oats, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Pulse a few times.
  2. Then add the dates and pulse another few times.
  3. Add some water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough starts to come together.
  4. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper.
  5. Press 1/2 the filling into the bottom of the pan. Press down hard with your palms so it packs tight.
  6. Spread some jam over the mixture. Make sure you leave about 1/2 inch around the border.
  7. Lastly, pack the remaining mixture on top of the jam layer. Pack this layer down tight as well.
  8. Place in the fridge to firm up. Only a few minutes.
  9. Use a pizza cutter to cut into bars and store in an airtight container. These should last a few weeks in the fridge.
