Gluten Free Peanut Butter Snack Bars

I get to a point every day where I feel like I need a snack. 

Usually somewhere in between breakfast and lunch or lunch and dinner. I eat a lot of fruit throughout the day, but sometimes fruit just doesn't full the whole. Now that is the time when I start daydreaming about crisps. 

Or at least it was until I discovered the delicious, No Bake, Gluten Free (winner!), Vegan,  Peanut Butter Snack Bars.

They taste so good that it seems almost wrong that I don't have to feel guilty for eating them!

They are full of: 
Vitamin B 
Delicious Flavour

And believe it or not they only take about 10 - 20 minutes to make.


  • 190g of Whole Rolled Oats
  • 160g  Dates
  • 140g Peanut Butter ( I used unsalted organic peanut butter)
  • 100g Sunflower Seeds
  • Half a teaspoon of Organic Raw Coconut Butter

  • If you like me buy dried dates, soak them up in warm water for about 10 minutes. 
  • Blend the Dates and Peanut Butter
  • Shallow pan fry the sunflower seeds until they are a shade of golden brown
  • Mix the Oats and Sunflowers seeds with the blended dates and peanut butter
  • Spread it in a dish and leave in the fridge for about 15 minutes to set.
  • Cut them up in desirable sized pieces and ejoy!
  • Leave whatever you don't eat in the fridge to keep them nice and solid.

These are perfect as an:

After Gym snack
On the go Breakfast
A Healthy Snack at Work
Biscuit Replacement with Your Coffee

As much as I would love to claim this recipe as my own, I must give the credits to Minimalist Baker where I have discovered the original recipe. 

I have tweaked it as I think the sunflower seeds add a really delicious flavour and some extra nutrients.

The boy has said that eating these snacks at work is his favorite part of the day! 

Let me know if you like them!

Till next time,

  1. These look incredible! I'm such a serial snacker in work and I definitely need some alternatives to biscuits with my afternoon cup of tea. I also love peanut butter so another way to eat it definitely gets a big thumbs up from me!
