Healthy Grab and Go Bars


  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup brown rice flour or whole wheat flour, or all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a 9x13-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, wheat germ, flaxseed, cinnamon, salt, and brown rice flour.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, honey, canola oil, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Mix everything together by hand or with a fork until fully incorporated.
  • Press the mixture evenly into the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-30 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the bars are set. (For softer bars, bake for 20 minutes; for firmer bars, bake for 30 minutes.)
  • Remove the pan from the oven and let it cool for about 5 minutes.
  • While still warm, slice the bars into your desired size and shape.
  • Feel free to customize your bars by adding mini chocolate chips, craisins, slivered almonds, or any other favorite mix-ins.
  • Once completely cooled, store the grab-and-go bars in an airtight container for up to a week. Enjoy these wholesome treats on the run, at work, or any time you need a nutritious snack to keep you going!
