These chewy oat squares with oats, almond butter and seeds, are the perfect alternative to store-brought granola bars. They’re slightly sweet and make for a healthy snack on the go! Vegan and gluten-free.
No more store bought granola bars here — not when I can make healthy oat squares like these at home!
YUUUUMMMM! Isaac and I both taste-tested the squares and agreed that they are delicious. They’re chewy with a good flavor that isn’t overly sweet. Basically a nice healthy treat that’s perfect for days when you need something portable to munch on.
I even went all out and figured out the nutrition information.
Definitely less sugar than most packaged bars other there and a good amount of protein as well.

In a pot on medium heat, combine rice syrup, almond butter, and vanilla. Stir and heat until thin and pourable (about 3-4 minutes).
In a large mixing bowl, combined oats, cereal, oat bran, pepitas, sunflower seeds, raisins, chia seeds, cinnamon, and sea salt.
Pour warm almond butter mixture into the bowl and mix thoroughly. Press mixture into a greased square/rectangle casserole dish or a rimmed cookie sheet. Let cool for a few hours. Cut into bars. Makes 16 squares.
