These No-Bake Granola Bars are Vegan, Nut Free, and require only 8 healthy ingredients! The best part? They’re NOT sticky at room temperature!


  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Nut or Seed Butter (I used a mix of Tahini and Sunflower Butter)
  • 1/4 cup Oat Flour*
  • 2 1/2 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1/3 cup Sunflower Seeds
  • 1/3 cup Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1/2 cup Cranberries (or other dried fruit of choice)
  • 2 tbsp Cacao Nibs or mini Chocolate Chips
  • Pinch of Salt


  1. First, add the Maple Syrup and Nut/Seed Butter to a medium bowl. Mix until well combined.
  2. Add in the Oat Flour with a pinch of Salt, and mix again until well-incorporated.
  3. Next, add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir well, until the sticky mixture is evenly coating all Granola Bar pieces.
  4. Line a 9×9″ baking tin with parchment paper, and firmly press the Granola Bar mixture into the tin. Let sit for 15-20 minutes, to allow the Oats to absorb any extra moisture.
  5. Cut the Granola Bars in the pan, then carefully remove. Store at room temperature for up to 6 days.


  • Maple Syrup may be substituted with Agave or Coconut Nectar.
  • To make your own Oat Flour, simply blend 1/4 cup of Oats in a blender for 30-60 seconds. I see a lot of people blend their Oats too little – it should be a very fine texture once finished.
  • Because these Bars are homemade, they can still be quite fragile. To ensure they don’t crumble, I would advise cutting them in the pan before you remove them, and packing them with a little extra cushion when taking on-the-go.
