Almond Vanilla Baked Oatmeal Breakfast Bars - FOOD PHOTO SHOOT

Almond Vanilla Baked Oatmeal Breakfast Bars (5).jpg

Breakfast time, everybody up.

Yes, I’m sharing another oats recipe, but I promise it’s not boring. So I went through this phase a while back where I was so into baked oats. Literally, I’d eat it for breakfast every single morning.

Needless to say, after that much repetition I did get tired of it after a while but recently I’ve been craving it again. I also remembered that I’ve got some really ancient recipes that need updating and these almond vanilla bars came to mind. I called them “bars” for lack of a better word, but honestly it’s definitely closer to baked oats and you just cut it into bars.

What I love about this recipe is that it’s a great way to prep ahead and have breakfast or snacks ready for those busy mornings.

If you’re into overnight oats or any other way of eating cold cereal then you might enjoy these cold. I’ll definitely eat this recipe cold sometimes and I really like it that way. Personally though, my favorite way to eat this recipe is hot and slightly toasty on top. Oh, and I love to pile on all the berries and fruit (bet you’re surprised by that 😉 ). Basically any toppings you like for a basic bowl of oats works well here.

I just really enjoy this change up from a basic bowl of oats sometime, especially during the summer or when I’m in a hurry. Topping this with something crunchy like a sprinkle of cereal, nuts, and/or seeds is also a win!

Almond Vanilla Baked Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Yield: 6-8 servings


1 1/2 cups almond milk
1 scoop plant-based vanilla protein powder
1 apple, quartered + seeds removed
4 teaspoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
1 teaspoons almond extract
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teapoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C) and line an 8x8 inch square pan with parchment. Combine all the ingredients, except oats, in a blender or food processor and pulse until the apples are blended and the mixture is smooth.
Add the oats and pulse just a few times to combine then pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes until the liquid is absorbed and the top is golden brown. Cool for about 5 minutes before eating.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

looks delish!

Looks a little dry, needs a huge mug of coffee as a friend! :P

@onecupofcoffee perhaps coffee would be a great idea


howdy there @gringalicious! hey these things make a great breakfast, good supply of carbs to get you through till lunchtime or take on the job.
excellent photos too but then you already know that! lol

Oh, such flattery @janton. Thanks my friend. ;)

healthy food!!!! I like it!

I'm so glad to hear it @finevector!

Thanks for your work!!!

It is very delicious and healthy food. I do like your recipe and i have to try it in my house. Thanks for your best information. May God always give you the best. By the way, the shape is nearly same with Tempe (Traditional food which is from Indonesia). It is very healthy because it is made from soy that has many advantages for our body.


Much of information, thank you very much for your good content.

These bars are really a must. they are so delicious. and healthy. sometimes you take so little time to make such things, right?
But if we did that, then they are really enjoyed, is not it? Thank you dear @gringalicious .

Absolutely right. Thanks for reading @jaklassen!

Wow! Suddenly my breakfast seems much less appealing....

@papa-pepper so great to hear from you. I hope all is well with you and yours

It reminds me to a desert my grandma used to make when I was a kid. Looks great.

My Goodness Gringa! If Steemit for some reason doesn't work out, I think you'll have a great future in the cereal bar industry! Another great post as always!

That is some energy dense food @gringalicious quite a bit bad I could not bake but maybe soon when I get well.

Do you sell your own food? Would you consider owning a bakery, or investing in one?

@remotediscovery I do not sell and no, I don't want the burden of being tied to a food service business. Great commenting

you always fine a way to keep me on my feet............😋

Great recipe in fact......

But i would suggest to go for raw oat meal with almond

No mold, just a basic baking pan. Thanks for taking the time to reply @artizm!
