Oaty No-Bake Bars

Oaty No-Bake Bars

I made these oaty no-bake bars for packed lunches and to take to work. Great for a quick healthy-ish snack, and made with ingredients from your kitchen cupboards, they are so easy to prepare.

My kids also love these after school and it keeps them going without being full of sugar. Great in my books. So easy to make as no baking is needed so you can just mix the ingredients together then chill and you’re done. Also simple to throw together on the weekend for the week ahead if you are planning your meals.

They look brilliant! So healthy looking! Yum yum!

these look delicious and probably have just enough chocolate to tempt without too much that would make me eat the whole batch at once (though it would be tempting nevertheless)

This is such a good idea, brilliant for lunch boxes and the like!

I have the distinct feeling I would eat far more of these than is good for me 🙂

I have been testing out no bake cashew desserts so i am quite excited about finding more no bake desserts.

Now this is the sort of easy baking I can handle 🙂 This look divine and healthy and given the chocolate on the top even Caroline might eat them !

Perfect for my new van life! I have no oven in my new tiny nomadic home but I do have a fridge!


Ooh I like the look of these Lucy – no cook flapjacks. I’ve made something a bit similar, but not quite like this. Have bookmarked. Thanks for joining in with We Should Cocoa 🙂
