Gluten-free, Dairy-free Blueberry Oat Bars

Actually, they're vegan too.

I adapted this from a recipe a friend gave me. They are delicious.

GF DF Blueberry Oat Bars

4 1/2 c rolled oats
1 cup GF flour (I used Bob's Red Mill Brown Rice flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1-2 tsp vanilla extract (I used a bit more probably bc I went to add "a little" splash and dumped a bunch in lol)
2/3 c DF "butter," softened (I used Earth Balance dairy-free soy-free buttery spread)
1/3 c honey
1/3 c packed brown sugar
1/2 c applesauce
2 tsp cinnamon
2 c blueberries (you could use DF chocolate chips, raisins, cranberries, etc etc)

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Press into a greased (I used Spectrum palm shortening) 9x13 pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 18-22 min. Let cool. Cut into squares & wrap individually in wax paper. Refrigerate.

They really held up well in the fridge. All three of us really liked them and they gave me quite a milk supply boost. Yay for another galactagogue if I need one!!


  1. Sounds good! You are really getting into adapting recipes!

    I don't ever put the "right" amount of vanilla in either ;)

  2. It is so much easier that way! Many of the store-bought baked goods that are gluten free have dairy in them, but if I make stuff at home I can use rice milk & non-dairy "butter." :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I love to hear from you.
