  • 2 cups gluten-free oats
  • 1 cup almond flour/meal
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
  • ⅓-1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil allow to cool a few minutes
  • ½ cup honey or maple syrup to make vegan
  • 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9x13 pan with coconut oil or line with parchment paper. Parchment paper will yield a cleaner removal.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, almond flour, cinnamon, salt, ground flax seed, chocolate chips, cranberries, and sunflower seeds. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour cooled coconut oil, honey, and vanilla extract. Stir until the mixture is evenly coated.
  • Transfer mixture to prepared pan and using a a piece of parchment paper, press mixture firmly down into pan.
  • Bake for 22-25 minutes or until sides and top start to turn a golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Once completely cool, use a sharp knife to cut into bars. Wrap individually with foil or store in an airtight container.
