Picture this: it’s about 11 am, I’m starting to get hungry because it’s been a while since I had my breakfast but it’s still not legal to eat lunch.

I have this little voice in my head telling me I shouldn’t eat lunch before 12:30 because I’m not 10 anymore haha AND I love long mornings – so I drag myself to the kitchen to make the same old snack consisting of rice/corn cake + nut butter + fruit.

Just as I am about to start my thing… I remember that I have these Honey and Almond Oatmeal Bars waiting for me in the fridge from the day before.

Oh, the happiness! It’s like finding a forgotten bill in your pockets. Ok, it’s not as cool but it’s still cool. ‘Cause these no-bake oatmeal bars are so so so tasty and I had to restrain myself the day before to not eat the whole thing.

One oatmeal bar a day, I told myself!

These easy No-Bake Oatmeal Bars are sweetened with honey and packed with crunchy almonds, chia seeds, and nut butter!

Am I the only one who gets excited by food like that? Solal and a lot of my friends are similar so I’m not sure if we’re the normal guys anymore.

Like, when we decide to go on vacation somewhere, the first criteria we look at to choose the location is literally the food.

Anyways! No need to be food geeks to enjoy these healthy no bake oatmeal bars – you just need to be human and hungry sometimes.

That should cover a few people.

These are packed with good-for-you ingredients, like almonds, chia seeds, and healthy nut butter! As these are only sweetened with honey, they are also refined sugar-free.

Although I haven’t tested these Honey Almond Oatmeal Bars on little humans, I’m sure they would love them too. Make a batch this week and have a delicious, healthy and gluten-free snack ready to be grabbed and gobbled up anytime! Enjoy 🙂

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 8 hours 15 minutes
Servings 12 bars
Calories 291 kcal


  • 2 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds optional
  • 2 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup almond butter or your favorite nut butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. In a large mixing bowl, toss the oats and salt until well mixed. Stir in the remaining ingredients, using your hands to combine well until the mixture looks like cookie dough.
  2. Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment, then add dough, press VERY WELL into the dish until compact and smooth. I put a piece of parchment on top and used the palm of my hand to press the mixture until firm. Chill in the fridge for at least 6 hours, or overnight.

  3. Once chilled, remove bars from the baking dish using parchment paper, and cut into 12 bars. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

  1. Ha, YES! Finding homemade goodies in the fridge is definitely almost as awesome as those bills you find in your jeans when doing laundry! Especially if it’s something as yummy as these homemade snack bars! LOVE the combo of honey and almonds and those little chia seeds on top add a nice crunch and some extra health benefits!

  2. Amazing! I tried this with oatmeal, and peanut butter, and it is just amazing! Perfect snack for our swimming competition too! Thanks so much!
