Making Gluten Free Birthday Cake Bars

These bars are a simple, one-bowl recipe that requires next to no prep and minimal clean up. To make them, you’ll need:

  • Oats (I used old fashioned)
  • Almond flour, which you’ll want to lightly sift to remove any clumps
  • Baking soda, to give these some rise
  • Vanilla and almond extract, which will give these their birthday cake flavor
  • Egg (or sub vegan egg alternative)
  • Maple syrup (or sub honey)
  • Melted coconut oil
  • Rainbow sprinkles, because duh
Gluten Free Birthday Cake Bars

In a medium mixing bowl, combine oats, almond flour, baking soda and stir together. In another bowl, combine melted (cooled) coconut oil, egg, vanilla and almond extracts, and maple syrup. Stir wet ingredients together, then mix into the dry ingredients. Lastly, fold in the sprinkles.

Line a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment paper and press in the dough so it makes an even layer. If you’re looking to make more, double the recipe and use a 9×9 square pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Let cool, slice, and enjoy!
