I’m so excited about this recipe for blueberry banana oat bars. They work well for breakfast, snack time, or even dessert.

Store-bought granola bars, even the organic ones, are so full of sugar and other unnecessary ingredients and preservatives. They also tend to be expensive and over-packaged.

These oat bars are simple to make and they cost a fraction of what you’d pay for granola bars at the grocery store. The flavor of these bars is so delicious. They don’t last long in my house!

These blueberry banana oat bars are soft and fruity. Let them cool completely before cutting into bars, or else they may fall apart a bit. Store at room temperature, or freeze for later.

Try my blueberry chia seed muffins, vegan lemon blueberry bread, and blueberry overnight oats for other ways to enjoy this delicious fruit.

  1. I doubled the recipe, used only half the amount of maple syrup (because I only had half a cup) added about 1/3 cup of hemp seeds and completely forgot the milk. I also used coconut oil instead of applesauce. They came out delicious and very, very crumbly.

  2. I used all mashed banana instead of the apple sauce and they came out really well! Such a delicious healthy snack. Love the chewy texture and punch of the blueberries. Thanks for posting!!

    1. I’m so glad you liked them, Ellen. I love banana, so I’m sure I would like your variation. I’ll have to try it next time.

  3. Have you ever tried to make these with soaked oats? I’ve just recently started experimenting with soaking grains and I thought it might work well with this recipe (which we LOVE in my house!)

    1. I’m so glad you like it! We do soak our oats for oatmeal, but I haven’t tried this recipe with soaked oats. Great idea – I will next time.

  4. My 5 year old (and now my 2 year old) eats packaged granola bars every morning, because lets face it, I can’t get up early enough before kindergarten to get real food into him. I would love to make a homemade healthier, cheaper bar. So, I was pleasantly surprised to find your recipe! However, I was quickly dissapointed because my son is severely allergice to egg. Do you have any ideas on what I could replace it with that would still work? I am so bad in the kitchen…In muffiins I replace egg with applesauce, but I don’t think that would work here. Any ideas would be appreciated!!

    1. Food allergies can be so challenging. You can make a substitute “flax egg” for baking. To make a flax egg, add one tablespoon flax meal to 3 tablespoons water. Stir together and let it sit for a few minutes. It will take on the consistency of an egg white. Good luck and let me know if it works for you!

    2. Chia seeds work well as an egg substitute too although i Havent tried it in this recipe yet. Plus they are great for you! Use one tablespoon ground chia seeds to three tablespoons water for each egg.

  5. These look fantastic! I will be making these asap, but might sub (less healthy) chocolate chips for blueberries so my picky chocoholic preschooler will eat them 🙂 Thanks f
