3.7 from 3 reviews

These chewy sesame and chia seed snack bars work as a great light snack or a breakfast on-the-go. This recipe is vegan, gluten-free, paleo, and oil-free.



Optional Topping:

  • melted chocolate of your choice for dipping or drizzling


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F. Line a small baking tray (I used one that's 7.5" x 9.5", but anything of a similar size will do) with some parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place all ingredients in a small mixing bowl and stir everything together to combine. Let sit for 15 mins, stirring occasionally.
  3. After the 15 mins have passed, give the mixture another stir to make sure it's well-combined. Then transfer it into the prepared baking tray. Smooth out the top with the back of a spoon.
  4. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 1hr and 10 mins. Remove from oven and cool on a rack for about an hour. Once completely cooled, cut into bars and enjoy!*


* Storage notes: the bars can be stored at room temperature in a sealed container, if consumed within 2-3 days. Otherwise they can be stored in the fridge for a longer shelf-life, or frozen for later use.
