If you're looking for a no-bake option for a shelf-stable oat bar, here's a simple recipe for you. It's just as delicious as it is convenient, and with proper storage, it will keep for quite a while, making it ideal to take with you on camping or hiking adventures. Additionally, it's packed with carbs, fiber, protein, vitamins, and good fats, making it a win-win.


- 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

- 1 cup of oat flour

- 1 cup dried fruits (e.g., raisins, chopped apricots, or cranberries)

-1/4 cup of chia seeds

-1/4 cup coconut oil

- 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup

- 1/2 cup peanut butter ( almond or cashew)

- 1/2 teaspoon salt


1. Mix Dry Ingredients:

- In a large mixing bowl, combine the old-fashioned rolled oats, dried fruits and seeds. Mix well and set aside.

2. Prepare Wet Ingredients:

- On the hob, warm the honey or maple syrup, nut butter and coconut oil until the mixture is smooth and well combined.

3. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

- Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients. Stir until all the ingredients are evenly coated and combined.

4. Press into Pan:

- Transfer the mixture to a square baking pan ( i used 20x24 cm, not quite square i know) lined with parchment paper. Use a spatula or your hands to press it firmly and evenly into the pan.

5. Chill:

- Cover the tray with clingfilm and place it in the refrigerator, chill for at least 2 hours or until the bars have set.

6. Cut and Serve:

- Once the bars are firm, lift them out of the pan using the parchment paper overhang. Place the block of bars on a cutting board and cut them into your desired bar size.

7. Store:

- To store the no-bake oat bars, individually wrap them in plastic wrap or parchment paper and place them in an airtight container. Keep the container in the cool dark place until required but trust me they wont sit there for long !
