  • 2 cups gluten-free oats
  • 1 cup almond flour/meal
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 1/3-1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil allow to cool a few minutes
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup to make vegan
  • 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Transfer mixture to prepared pan and using a a piece of parchment paper, press mixture firmly down into pan.
  4. 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.
