No bake breakfast granola bars are low calorie, nut free and so easy to make. They’re not only ideal as a quick grab breakfast, but as a healthy snack option during the day too!
There’s just so many good things to say about these no bake breakfast granola bars.
So let’s start by simply saying that they’re delicious.
Then, that they're stuffed full of healthy seeds and fruit.
They have a fantastic chocolaty taste as well.
But for me, the very best thing is that I can make these at the weekend and I've got 12 healthy snack bars to last the whole week!
Folks, I love to see which of my recipes you click on the most and which ones receive the most comments.
When I recently published my no bake almond oat bars you guys sent it right to the top of your favourite recipes!
It remained there for days after. So I made a note to bring you a similar low calorie breakfast bars recipe as soon as possible.
Et voila! These no bake breakfast granola bars!
And, these are just so tasty!
My other half couldn’t wait to have one of these low calorie granola bars each day, choosing to have hers as a snack as opposed to having it for breakfast.
But that’s why these bars are also perfectly versatile!
When I took them in for a taste test at work, they went down equally well too.
I just stuck the box in the work kitchen with a label on it saying what they were and basically “help yourself”.
On returning to the kitchen within the hour they were gone. I think that’s validation enough, don’t you?
Incidentally, I deliberately made these bars as a nut free recipe because a colleague at work has a nut intolerance and wasn’t able to enjoy the no bake almond oat bars recipe.
As I love to share my recipes, with everyone, I wouldn’t want anyone this time to miss out on some low calorie snack bar delicious home baking!

Thanks for sharing and success with the changes on your blog!
Hi Debbie, thanks so much for your awesome comment! 🙂
I'd love any feedback when you get a chance to make these!
Just selected a new logo and design for the blog, so changes will begin to happen over the next couple of months. That's the plan anyway 😉
rachel @ athletic avocado
theres no excuse to skip breakfast if you make these! they look delicious and i love that they are made with wholesome ingredients! 🙂
Thanks, there's no excuse at all is there Rachel?
In fact for these, I would expect to see people leaping out of bed! 🙂
I'm really bad for eating breakfasts these days -- as three out of five now I'm out the door by 6:20! I need to make some of these to keep for the week! I know that Luke would love them too! I'm laughing right now because your description of how you would not spend your weekend is exactly how Luke spends his (most of the time)! I'd love for him to want to be cooking away and not shouting at f'n Aberdeen at the top of his lungs. 😉 Glad to hear you've shifted your "man flu"! We're both a bit sick this week. 'Tis the season, I suppose!
These would be so handy for you just to grab on your way out of the flat Erin!
I couldn't leave the house in the morning without at least having something. You must be starving by mid morning?
Ha ha re: Luke, each to their own eh? There was a time I stood watching Dundee Utd. at the weekends, only to be solely disappointed most Saturdays. I think the "lows" were too much for me 😉
I'm just about 100% there with my recovery from the "man flu". However Lynne now has it......... oops!
Susie @ SuzLyfe
I never ever ever skip breakfast. In fact, sometime I have it throughout the day because, you know, most important meal and all! Have a great weekend! My body is still adjusting to the adrenaline let down of the marathon, and I'm not sore (though tired) so all I want to do is run!
And I have to stop eating like I'm in training. No, I do not need to salt EVERYTHING.
Nope, like you, I never ever skip breakfast either Suz, I just couldn't function without it! 🙂
Thanks, you have a great weekend too. I've got tons of blog stuff I'm working on at the moment, so it's another "rest" weekend for me, but I'll manage the usual 10k -12k on Saturday morning.
I don't know where you get all that energy from, but its pretty inspiring! 😀
Thanks Fran! Definitely very tasty and difficult to actually NOT want to eat them all in one go. 😀
Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine
These just look so good, had to pin! I love all the seeds, but I REALLY love all the coconut butter <3
Thanks Rebecca, I'm really happy you liked them!
I only recently started cooking with coconut butter, and I really like it. 🙂
Sam @ PancakeWarriors
Can you say DELISH!! I'm all about a quick and easy granola bar. I'm going to start teaching boot camp at 8 am, which is at a weird time to make breakfast before I go. But I know I'll be starving by the time I leave. I think these yummy granola bars would be perfect to eat on the road with a coffee! Such a great breakfast!
Thank you so much Sam! And good luck with starting to teach your boot camp at 8am! 🙂
I can guarantee that one of these granola bars would compliment your coffee so well. That's how I love to have mine! 😀
Shashi at RunninSrilankan
Neil these bars indeed sound delicious! I wish you worked with me cos I'd have taken the whole box then I could have had one for breakfast AND one for snack later! 🙂
I hate to admit this, but my idea of a wonderful weekend is lounging around doing absolutely nothin - maybe yardwork but that's it - life has a way of getting so busy especially on the weekends, so just wedging out is bliss for me!
Can you imagine if we worked together? You and I would have the entire box scoffed by mid-day! 😆
I can see us fighting off our co-workers as they try to reach the box and take one of OUR bars! Ha ha ha!
You are welcome to come and do my yardwork any time! We only have a very small back garden, but it's a pain and one of my most loathsome jobs is mowing the lawn or sweeping up leaves. Grrrr! And there's about to be lots of that due as the leaves are beginning to fall off the trees here. Boooooooo!
