Maple Pecan Granola Bars (gluten-free, whole grain, refined sugar-free, one bowl)

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 12 bars
Calories 233 kcal


  • 1 cup oats (certified gluten-free)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (certified gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup flax seed, ground
  • 3/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 and line a 9x9 pan with parchment paper, so that two sides are sticking out, to easily remove the granola bars after they bake.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine your dry ingredients: oats, oat flour, ground flax seed, pecans, cinnamon and salt. Stir together well.

  3. Move your dry ingredients to the sides of your bowl, so you have a well in the middle for your wet ingredients. Add your wet ingredients (maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and egg) into the middle and whisk together. Then, stir all your dry and wet ingredients together till all is well combined.

  4. Dump your ingredients into your pan and spread out evenly, so the entire surface of the pan is covered in a thin, even layer, that is smoothed out on top.

  5. Bake in the oven for about 25-30 minutes, or till the top of the bars are feeling set.

  6. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes, then lift your bars out of the pan with the edges of your parchment paper. 

  7. You can cut your bars into 12 bars (2x6) or you can cut them into squares (4x4 or 3x4). Devour!

Recipe Notes

I like to keep these granola bars in my fridge, and they last for about a week or so. Alternatively, you can freeze them each individually in a plastic snack bags, inside of one large bag, and they will last for about a month or so.
