 Paleo Blueberry Breakfast Bars

This recipe was sponsored by Bob’s Red Mill. All ideas and thoughts are my own. 

Looking for an easy paleo breakfast, snack, or dessert? These Paleo Breakfast Bars are the perfect way to start your day or refuel in the afternoon. 

My paleo breakfast bars are also vegan and lower in glycemic index than traditional blueberry breakfast bars, making them great for people with diabetes. Your kids will even gobble them up after school! 

What is paleo?

Paleo is a dietary plan including lean meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds.  Regarding baking, paleo recipes exclude grains, dairy, or highly-processed foods.   

What ingredients are in my paleo breakfast bars?

These paleo bars are packed with whole food ingredients like pumpkin puree, unsweetened applesauce, and blueberries. 

Only sweetened with maple syrup and 100 % orange juice, enjoy these paleo blueberry bars any time of day! 

Cinnamon adds extra flavor and creates the best smell while cooking, your kids will be waiting for these to come out of the oven!

How are these bars a complete breakfast?

Each bar contains the right amount of protein, fiber, and fat for a balanced breakfast, snack, or dessert. 

Grain free flours have a lower glycemic index than traditional flours, which are digested and absorbed more slowly and can help balance your blood sugar levels. 

Blueberries have amazing health benefits! Filled with fiber, minerals, and antioxidants, this fruit is a must have! Studies have shown blueberries may help stabilize blood sugar, aid in satiety, reduce the risk of heart disease, promote healthy digestion, and improve mental health and cognition. 

Are they grain free?

Almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca flour, and arrowroot powder are all grain free flours used to create this yummy grain free bars.  Combining these flours creates the perfect paleo flour blend and substitute for traditional flours. 

Are they vegan friendly?

These vegan breakfast bars are dairy and egg free, making these 100% vegan friendly. Everyone will enjoy these delicious and nutrition packed bars!

How do you make Paleo breakfast bars?

How to make the filling:

First, we need to make the filling. Start by adding the frozen berries and orange juice to a small saucepan. Bring them to a boil and then simmer for 15-20 minutes to help it reduce some and thicken up.

How to make the crust: 

While the berries are simmering, combine the eight ingredients for the crust in a bowl and mix to combine. Place the dough in the freezer for 15 minutes.

How to make the bars:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

When 15 minutes has passed, remove the dough from the freezer, and remove the berries from the stove. You can add the berry mixture to a food processor and process until smooth or leave the filling chunky, whichever you prefer.

Now, press half the dough mixture into a parchment lined loaf pan, covering the bottom. (The dough will be sticky. It helps to wet your fingertips slightly with cold water before handling the dough.) Spread the berry mixture over the crust in the loaf pan, leaving a small edge bare all the way around the edges. 

Spread the second half of the crust mixture over the filling. (Tip: do small pieces at a time, using wet fingers to flatten the dough, and then place the pieces on top of the berry mixture.) Gently press the dough edges together to seal the berry mixture inside.

Bake for 25 minutes. Immediately, lift the berry bars out of the pan using the parchment paper and place on a wire rack. Carefully, using a wide/flat spatula, slide the parchment paper out from under the bars. Let the bars cool completely before slicing. Enjoy!

  1. I cooked the bars for 25 mins. The middle felt set so I took them out. After letting them cook and cutting them the inside bar is still yummy. Any idea of what happened? Thanks!
