Baked Oatmeal Bars

Baked oatmeal gained so much popularity on TikTok over the past few months. It’s easy to make, convenient to have on hand, and can be customized to your liking!

These blueberry baked oatmeal bars are filled with whole grains, lightly sweetened, and are a perfect satisfying breakfast to start your day with.

What you’ll need to make baked blueberry oatmeal bars 

Rolled oats– the rolled oats give these bars their hearty texture, while providing whole grains and fiber. The recipe calls for quick-cooking oats, but if you don’t have any you can simply pulse your rolled oats in a blender for 10-20 seconds to chop them up!

Oat flour– oat flour is an affordable, nut-free flour that I love baking with. I prefer buying it pre-made since it’s a lot finer, but you can make your own by blending rolled oats until it’s fine like flour 

Coconut sugar– I love the caramel-like sweetness that coconut sugar provides, but you can also use light brown sugar. This recipe has less than half the amount of sugar than most other oatmeal bar recipes! 

Almond milk- I always opt for unsweetened almond milk, but any milk will work well in this recipe

Eggs

Coconut oil– when baking with coconut oil, I always use refined coconut oil for its neutral taste and flavor 

Blueberries

Cinnamon

Homemade bars are a healthier option than most other packaged breakfast bars, and can easily be frozen and defrosted as needed.

They’re based off of my Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars, which are always a hit in our house.

You can serve these cold, at room temperature, or warmed in the oven or microwave. Each bar is bursting with blueberries, and has the fluffiest texture.

Baked blueberry oatmeal bars are a nutritious breakfast or snack option to have around that are gluten-free, dairy-free and can even be made nut free by using a nut free milk.

They’re made with staple pantry items, and can be stored for up to a week or frozen for months!

I can’t wait for you guys to try them 🙂
