3-Ingredient No-Bake Granola Bars {vegan, glutenfree, fruit-sweetened}



  • 1/2 cup (packed) raisins or dates
  • 11/4 cups rolled oats (certified GF as needed)
  • 2 tablespoons creamy nut or seed butter (I used sunflower seed butter)


  1. Grease or spray 6 cups of a standard muffin tin.
  2. Place the raisins in a small bowl and cover with enough hot (not boiling) water to cover. Let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, spread the oats in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Cook and stir for 3 to 5 minutes until golden brown and the oats smell toasty and nutty. Transfer oats to a medium bowl.
  4. Drain the raisins, serving 3 tablespoons soaking liquid. Process the driained raisins in a small food processor or blender until smooth and pasty.
  5. Melt the nut butter in a small saucepan set over medium-low heat. Add the reserved liquid and raisin paste. Cook and stir for about 30 to 60 seconds until blended and warmed through. Immediately pour over oats, stirring to combine.
  6. Divide mixture among prepared cups. Very firmly tamp (press) mixture into the cups (use the bottom of a measuring cup). Place in freezer for 30 minutes.
  7. Insert knife at edge of each puck to loosen and lift out.


Storage: Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 day (e.g., when packing for lunch, etc). Otherwise, store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
