Healthy Oatmeal Cookie Bars are soft, made with clean ingredients, and easy to mix up. Adult and Kid-friendly, these cookie bars taste like your favorite Oatmeal Cookie without any of the guilt. Recipe at


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (can sub all purpose flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch salt (about 1/8 teaspoon)
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (I used mini!)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup nut butter (I used almond butter. Peanut butter or cashew butter would be fab.)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Prepare your pan. Spray an 8x8 pan with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. I like to do both!
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, slat, and chocolate chips. Set aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Eggs, nut butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Mix with a spoon, rubber spatula, or fork until the ingredients are well blended.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredient bowl, mixing until combined. Pour dough into the prepared baking dish and spread evenly.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 16-19 minutes. The bars will be set (ie, not jiggly when you shake the pan), and very lightly browned. I like the bars a little gooey in the middle, so bake according to your preference. Enjoy 🙂
