As someone who diets regularly, having snacks on hand is imperative.

Snacking between meals keeps me energised throughout the day and also aids my weight loss goals. Before I started paying attention to my food, I’d often reach for candy bars or ice cream, which aren’t the best options. If I didn’t snack on one of those, I’d simply remain hungry until dinner time and then overdo it because of my hunger!

To ensure I stick to my goals, I try to keep my snacks on the healthier side. Because I’m more of a sweet snacker, you can bet my snacks reflect that too.

What sweet can I eat on a diet?

There are plenty of sweet snacks to choose from but an easy and foolproof one to have on hand are these sweet snack bars. They require just four ingredients and take less than a minute to make. They also don’t require any baking. Here is how to make it. 

The Ingredients.

  • Oat flour– Skip the expensive store bought kind and simply make your own
  • Peanut butter– smooth and creamy peanut butter with no added sugar. You can use almond butter or a nut free alternative, like sunflower seed butter. 
  • Maple syrup– Adds sweetness and helps hold the bars together. 
  • Chocolate chips– Melted and drizzled on top. You can skip the sugar and use sugar free chocolate chips

The Instructions. 

In a mixing bowl, add the oat flour, peanut butter, and maple syrup and mix until combined. Transfer the mixture into a lined square pan and press down into place. Refrigerate the bars for 30 minutes to firm up, before slicing them up and drizzling with some melted chocolate. 

Storing and freezing instructions

    1. Your timing is perfect here, mate! We’ve been counting calories since before Thanksgiving…and it’s working. But I just didn’t even try on Christmas Day. Oops. Haha! Hope you are having a great holiday break, and I hope it’s full of lots and lots of 100 calorie snacks. Nomnomnom. 🙂

    2. Thanks for all of the yummy looking low cal recipes! While family and friends enjoyed my cookies, I stuck to dark chocolate over the Christmas weekend. 🙂 Happy New Year!

    3. What a lineup of STARS and GEMS! Now I don’t count calories, but it’s SOOOOO easy for me to overdo desserts, especially healthy ones! Thanks so much for this post! Everything looks amazing, UNSURPRISINGLY. 😉

    4. 5 stars
      They all look awesome, but I’m keto, can you make any keto oatmeal anything? Please try, I really miss Oatmeal cookies, etc.
      Thank you, Cristina
