How to Make Gluten Free Oatmeal Bars Without Eggs

Before starting any baked recipe, check to see if there’s a flax egg and oven time. First preheat the oven, then make the flax eggs, then prep all of your ingredients.

To make gluten free oatmeal bars without eggs, we’ll be making 2 flax eggs.

First, preheat the oven to 350°F. Then, line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. This recipe is made for an 8-inch pan, so I don’t recommend using a 9-inch pan. The bars will be too thin. Then, make your 2 flax eggs and set them aside for later.

Grab a large mixing bowl and add in all of the dry ingredients: oats, oat flour, coconut, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk everything together until well mixed.

Next, grab a medium mixing bowl and add in all of the wet ingredients: flax eggs, coconut oil, nut butter, coconut sugar and vanilla. Use a clean whisk to whisk all of these wet ingredients together until you get a cohesive and mostly smooth mixture.

Now, scrape the entirety of the wet ingredients into the large mixing bowl, over the dry ingredients mix. Use a rubber spatula to stir and fold both components together until combined into a dough.

Fold in your favorites: chocolate chips, chopped walnuts, seeds, or even dried fruit. Be sure to chop nuts and fruit until you get small pieces. Large ones will create crumbly bars.

Pour your oatmeal bar mixture into the lined baking pan. Smooth into an even layer.

Bake for about 25 minutes, then cool, slice and enjoy the best dairy free oatmeal bars!

*Feel free to use any type of nut or seed butter you like. For example: peanut butter, cashew butter, sunflower butter. 😉

Store breakfast bars in an airtight container for 1 week. Keep out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources, which could keep the bars from being as fresh for as long as possible.

  1. These are the best bars ever!! My picky 3 year old calls them “mama bar” and has them for breakfast almost every day for the past 3 months or even longer. I double the recipe and bake for 40 mins in a 9 inch backing pan. They make up to 20 big delicious bars that last up to 2 weeks. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, Demeter.

  2. I just made these bars. I followed recipe as written except using olive oil in place of coconut oil which I ran out of. Oh and I used a 9×9 pan . They taste absolutely delicious and I’ve eaten two and a half already! Only issue is that they’re thinner than yours because I used a 9×9 and they’re VERY crumbly. I had to use a fork. I’m just wondering if you have any idea why they fell apart and didn’t hold together. I cooled for 1 hour. Next time I’ll use my 8×8 pan and see if that makes a difference. Otherwise they are really yummy!!

    Thank you Demeter! ❤️

    1. It’ll be the olive oil – coconut oil sets solid when cooled whereas olive oil doesn’t! Recommend trying with coconut oil next time 😉

  3. I used this as a base recipe and made it with items I had on hand. Substituted oat flour for almond meal. Substituted flax egg for the vegan egg replace. Used half almond butter and half peanut butter. In one batch I used veggie oil and in the second I used olive oil. No coconut sugar, so raw sugar worked well. This is an amazing base recipe because the ratios are spot on. Thank you so much!

      1. Just made another batch for a keto client and they came out super well, this recipe is an amazing base and works well for substitutions.

        All flours and oats substituted with almond meal, vegan eggs subbed with whole eggs, oil is olive oil and sugar with swerve sugar substitute.

        Thank you for this recipe with perfect ratios.

    1. That’s brilliant as I was just about to ask if I could substitute the coconut oil with olive oil! Looks amazing THANKS X

  4. These were fantastic! I followed the recipe as is except I subbed almond butter as we were sadly out of peanut butter. I also added 1/4 cup ground flax seeds for added nutrients. They are SO GOOD. 10/10 will make again. Thank you.

  5. This is a great recipe! I used quinoa flakes and almond meal and for the sugar I used xylitol. Turned out great. I’ll be making this regularly. Thank you.

    1. Hi Virginia 🙂 Do you remember how much almond flour and quinoa flakes you substituted?
      I love this recipe and have made it several times for myself! My son has a lot of food allergies (including oats), so I would love to make it for him using your substitutions.

  6. I made these last night in an effort to find something my husband and sons will grab on the go for breakfast. I used regular eggs instead of flax eggs and whole wheat flour instead of oat flour. I didn’t have any coconut, so I omitted that. I used dark chocolate chips and added 1/4 c pumpkin seeds because that’s what I had in the pantry. Baked them for 20 min in a 9 by 7 pan because, again, that’s what I had on hand. Husband loved them and I will definitely make them again, but I’ll continue to experiment with the add ins. Thanks for the recipe!

  7. Hi, do you have the nutritional info for this recipe? And also, I need to be sugar free. Will this be ok without the sugar?

  8. I’ve been looking for an at home replacement for the chocolate chip bobo bars- and I just made these! I made a few small changes- I omitted the coconut flakes and I substituted the coconut sugar for regular sugar. These bars are divine!! So crispy and soft! I will definitely be making them again! Thanks so much!!
