Vegan oatmeal bars without wheat flour

You don’t need wheat flour for this recipe, just like for the vegan banana muffins with chocolate chips. In fact, the oatmeal base is just oatmeal.

What’s more, all the ingredients you need for the recipe are purely plant-based. Thus, the sweet oatmeal bars are also suitable for vegans.

Which jam for the filling?

I filled my oatmeal bars with homemade apricot jam this time. They have also turned out delicious for me with a strawberry jam.

The vegan oatmeal bars taste best with a sour jam. Because it perfectly complements the crispy sweet oatmeal base.

You can make them with rhubarb jam or strawberry rhubarb jam, among other things. Also the blackcurrant jam, with which I have made the vegan nut chocolate jam loaf cake and the vegan jam cookies, is ideal for this.

Experiment with filling

By the way, you can experiment with the filling and use something else instead of jam. For example, a nut puree or a nut nougat cream goes very well with it. However, do not spread it on the oatmeal base until it has cooled down.

You can also make a fruit jelly beforehand, as I did for my strawberry roll cake, raspberry cream cheese cake or raspberry Danish mini pastry braids, and fill the oatmeal bars with it.

For breakfast, dessert or on the go

These jam oatmeal bars are perfect for breakfast for those who like a sweet start to the day.

They are also delicious for dessert after a meal with a cup of coffee, tea or a glass of cold (plant) milk.

Plus, you can snack on the jam filled oatmeal bars in between meals instead of or in addition to regular cookies, like snowflake cookies, vegan coconut cookies with chocolate or angel eyes cookies.

They are ideal to take with you on the go. For example, you can pack them as a snack to work, university or hiking.
