  • 1 1/2 cups gluten free rolled oats ground to a flour
  • 1/2 cup gluten free oat bran
  • 1/4 cup cashew butter
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup can sub for honey or other sticky sweetener if not strict vegan
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup cashews chopped finely
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 scoop of vanilla or neutral flavoured protein powder optional


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, oat bran, shredded coconut, protein powder (if using it), chopped cashews and sea salt.
  • In a small saucepan (or in a microwave safe bowl), slowly heat the cashew butter, coconut oil and brown rice syrup until fully incorporated and just starting to bubble.
  • Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and combine until fully combined.
  • Line a 9 x 9 inch baking dish with baking paper. Pour mixture into it and using your hands, press firmly to cover the entire pan equally. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and once set, remove from the pan and cut into 10 bars.


These bars are firm enough to be kept outside the refrigerator, but if you enjoy a more firm bar, keep them refrigerated and thaw briefly before eating.
