After making my Easy Blackberry Chia Seed Jam last week, I had lots of leftover jam that I wanted to bake with. Instead of making oatmeal or a PB&J with the leftovers, I decided to make these fun and irresistible Blackberry Breakfast Bars.

And let me tell you… these were my JAM (sorry, had to). Filled with bright blackberry jam and a crumbly strudel topping, these oats bars are great anytime of day!

These Vegan Blackberry Oat Bars are:

  • Bright

Bright and crumbly, these oat bars were a nice morning treat. The sweet crumbly topping pairs so well with the thick jammy center. I whipped these up in the morning before work (well, working from home this week!) and they couldn’t be easier to make!

What’s in these Blackberry Oat Bars?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Blackberry Jam – you can use store-bought, or follow my super Easy Blackberry Chia Seed Jam – ready in less than 10 minutes!
  • Old Fashioned Oats: I used old fashioned oats for this recipe. I found old fashioned oats work much better than quick oats, as they hold up really well while being baked.
  • All Purpose Flour: I normally use organic all purpose flour for all my baking recipes, I love the consistency and texture of the crumb this flour produces. If you are gluten free, then a certified gluten free flour would be a nice substitute in this dish.
  • Flaxseed Meal: I always add a scoop in my oatmeal for a little extra punch!  This flaxseed meal has a wonderful nutty flavor too.
  • Vanilla Extract: it’s super important to use real pure vanilla extract, and not artificial baking vanilla flavor. This real all natural vanilla is a fantastic ingredient to give these cookies an #extra boost.
  • Pink Himalayan Sea Salt: I like to use a pink Himalayan Sea Salt in my kitchen.
  • Butter, non-dairy

Dietary Modifications

  • To make this recipe gluten free, ensure all ingredients (including flour, oats, and any baking ingredients) you are using are certified gluten free, and always check the labels of ingredients before using.

Blackberry Oatmeal Bars For Meal Prep Breakfasts

This blackberry oat bar recipe is the perfect breakfast for easy homemade meal prep.  I am a huge fan of meal prepping, batch cooking, and making recipes ahead.  I love the convenience of cooking once and being able to enjoy homemade meals during the week when I don’t have time. There’s a whole section of TheHerbeevore.com dedicated to my favorite tried & true meal prep recipes

With just a little planning and prep, you can have a week’s worth of recipes ready in the time it would take to make one portion.  Just batch cook, divide into individual containers, and place in the fridge or freezer for later! 

How Do I Make Blackberry Oat Bars?

  1. Make or measure out 1 1/2 cups blackberry jam. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9×9 inch baking dish.
  3. In a large mixing bowl mix together the oats, flour, flaxseeds, white and brown sugars, vanilla extract, and melted butter. Stir well to combine. Set aside 1 cup for the topping.
  4. Add the remainder (2 cups or so) of the oat/flour /sugar mixture to the bottom of the 9×9 baking dish. Press down with fingers to compact.
  5. Next, layer the jam on top evenly.
  6. Add the remaining 1 cup of oat/flour/sugar mixture to the top of the jam, spreading and crumbling the mixture evenly over the top.
  7. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes, or until the topping begins to brown.
  8. Allow to cool for an hour before slicing. Enjoy!

Make Ahead Vegan Oat Bars Recipes

One great thing about these oat bars, is that they can be made ahead of time and you can freeze any leftovers. I love an easy make-ahead recipe, and these are perfect for a little breakfast meal prep. Make a batch on the weekends, pack for breakfast during the week, and freeze any leftovers you have for later.

I’d give these a total 10/10! They were easy to make, absolutely DELISH, and used some of those pantry staple ingredients which I always have on hand.

Dietary Modifications

  • These can be either vegan or dairy-free. For a vegan version, use a plant-based butter instead of dairy. I made these with a plant butter and they were fantastic!
  • For a gluten-free option, make the oats with a non-gluten flour such as almond flour or certified gluten free flour. Or you can use a 1:1 gluten free baking mix.  And make sure the oats are gluten-free before using.
