  • I used quick oats which may have made my mix a little dry but I’d recommend adding more wet ingredients. Love how easy this is, I’ll definitely try it again soon ☺️

  • Ugh me no understand me american! (Throws protein powder) KAAAWKAAAAA!!! Freedom cry ��

    But seriously great video. Glad I finally found a video with simple items that didn’t require some fresh ground cocoa straight from the top of mount fugi imported on a Pegasus

  • Why would you microwave? You just took all the nutrients out of the nut butter and coconut sugar and radiated it.. not healthy.. when microwaves first came out. The food that came out of them made ppl sick. They destroy food..

  • I really want to recreate these! I LOVED the Quaker Chewy granola bars when I was a kid (and my favorite was also the s’mores flavor ��). What brand of puffed rice cereal did you use? I’ve read that Rice Krispies aren’t vegan ��

  • Great video love its so interesting and inspiring I recently channel to track my success in cooking check it out @ Daley lifestyle

  • my fav was the s’mores flavor!! soooo good im definitely gonna try this out! you should try recreating cosmic brownies next, omg those were my lifeeeee when I was little! thanks for the recipe:)

  • These look superb! Like I NEED to try all three flavors but I think combining the peanut butter and chocolate chip granola bar would be perfect for me because I love PB and chocolate!

  • Great sweet dishes…. thanks…. you will see my new video TARTA Beaf rolls…lecker
    thanks for watching…greatings from chaoskitchen51

  • I tried this and it was so thick and heavy it just about burned up my food processor. I think it needs some liquid.  Any suggestions?

  • I’m excited to try this. Your granola recipe got me started making my own granola, and I haven’t purchased any pre-made granola since.

  • Look yummy. Will definitely make them.
    I could see when you were cutting them they broke up a little. I wonder would cutting them before going into the oven work better? Just a thought.

  • These bars are sooooo good! I didn’t have a food processor or a VitaMix so I actually put the dates in the microwave for a minute and it made the dates easier to work with!
    I landed on your YouTube videos by accident and I’m loving them as a new flexitarian/vegetarian �� I’m always looking for new recipe ideas. Love that you happen to be from BC, I knew right away from the picturesque backdrop.

  • what’s the serving size of 1 scoop protein powder? ’cause the size of the scoops all different each brand. I love this recipe, very helpful! can’t wait to try.

  • Thanks for the recipe! Can’t wait to try it:) I’m always looking for snacks for before exercising, because I can’t go on an empty stomach. When I was a kid, I loved the ones with banana and chocolate <3

  • Ooh I’m going to try these! Most vegan chewy granola bar recipes tend to have dates which aren’t the most budget friendly sometimes.

  • I’m about to try this tomorrow!! Super good!!! I’m doubting the nutrition lol. It taste too good to be true. Compared to what I think is the best tasting protein bar, Clif, which has more carbs than protein. Super delicious!! But don’t forget to spay ur pan!!! I did not and it’s a little sticky…

  • Seems very practical and delicious. I love to put some coconut oil and peanut butter, but I avoid using sugar, I prefer to put some dried fruit.

  • Since you asked for new video ideas:

    Healthy-ish Coffee Cake (GF)
    Little Debbies Strawberry Shortcake (GF)
    Apple Cider Donuts (GF)
    Sour Cream Donuts (GF)

  • I am impressed! Brilliant. I once tried to chop dates in my food processor and broke it! Thanks for inspiring me to give it a go again!

  • I just remembered I haven’t had granola bars in forever! I was diagnosed with nut allergies at age 13 and most store bought granola bars have nuts in them. Back then I was way too much of a lazy shit to make my own, but now I can’t wait lol

  • A few weeks ago I could have gotten a really good deal on a food processer but I told myself I would probably never use it….. I’m kicking myself now >:/

  • can you pls put the measurements in your videos? i love your recipes but i don’t see the point of watching them if you aren’t gonna put measurements

  • This looked so good I had to try it.  However, the mixture was so dry it wouldn’t come together and I thought it was going to burn up the motor on my food processor.  Any suggestions on how to make it stick together?

  • Great vegan granola bars recipe because standard granola isn’t vegan due to the �� honey. I have found that honey free granola isn’t cheap unless you make it yourself which I haven’t done yet but I will get round to it eventually.

  • Derek!! I just made these and they are amazing!!! I watched the video WHAT THE HEALTH on NETFLIX and decided to go plant based with my family. I was so nervous knowing nothing about it. The first video I watched on how to do it was yours! Thank you so much for giving me the courage to steer my family in this direction. I watch you all time, you are an inspiration to my family, so a BIG thank you!!! HUGS!!

  • Epicure (Canadian company!) has a silicone mold “Perfect Petites” that make 2tbs size bars. I do a big batch. Saves me a lot of money:)

  • DARK CHOCOLATE AKA “COCOA’ is a SUPER FOOD that blows other so called ‘super foods’ off the charts!  Always try to use the unsweetened COCOA if you can.

  • Lara bars are $1 a piece for a 1.6oz bar, you don’t really save money by making your own(because dates & nuts cost a lot over here) But, at least you know exactly what’s going into them and you know they’re 100% gluten free��❣

  • I finally figured out how to make these, I watched quite a few videos and if you just pulse 5 or 6 times starting on 5 (using the vitamix) it seems to put less stress on the blender, and it really works, then of course you increase to 10 and use tamper to finish. Then turn blender upside down and ingredients just fall out, and if you need to you can turn blade a few times and remainder of stuff will drop out. Thanks for the great recipe, these bars are so amazing ��

  • Do you buy your nuts/seeds like that? Or do you make your own mix? Can you give us more details about the nuts/seeds you use? Thanks for sharing you recipes, thumb up:)

  • Actually I have learned not to have nuts before you exercise because nuts are hard for your body to digest. They are healthy but not for before you exercise.

  • I really want to make these! I love dates!!! But the only kind of nuts I have right now are cashews and Brazil nuts �� I’m not sure how that would turn out

  • Hey bro, congratz for your channel, it’s really helping me here in Brasil!
    One question: what do you think about gluten? Specifically, breads. I see that even as a vegan, you don’t eat breads. I’m asking because I allways had difficult at gain weight, so I eat lots of sandwiches during my day (easy source of calories). Sorry my bad english and thanks for sharing your knowledge!

  • hey Simnett, new fan here. Just one question, from watching your videos I noticed you say that you don’t count reps and just workout to failure. so what do you think of all these youtube bodybuilders that claim keeping a log is mandatory? also what about the whole 3-5 reps for strength and 8-12 reps for mass. sorry for the long question.

  • This looks so delicious and easy! Plus, like you said, healthy too! I have been missing your live streams and recipe uploads also. Hope they can fix your computer. I was getting concerned that something was not right for you, but I assume you are ok, just not the computer. You take care my friend.

  • Yum! It would mean a lot to me if you checked out my channel, and maybe left me a comment on the way out? I just posted a video that I would love your support on

  • Nice Video! Good to see you are getting more into food man hahah by the way still waiting to see your pull and legs day… pretty interested

    But do you not have a core day?

  • Looks good and there are lots of other ingredients you could add too. Thanks for sharing. When are you releasing the musical Yummy? haha this one inspired you to sing you must really like it.

  • Girl, are you psychic? I was JUST thinking “hmm.. I wish I had a recipe for chewy bars” and look at this. Lol I plan on making a chocolate chip one with pretzel bits.

  • So simple & the basics ingredients are always in the cupboard, just add whey & get Almond milk instead, & a lot less expensive & keep making them.

  • Damn I need one of those s’mores bars! �� I never even thought of cutting up the small marshmallows to get the mini ones! Good idea for hot cocoa too… ��

  • I tried making these because I trusted the positive reviews. But I have to say, honesty, that they were not good at all. I’ll eat them just because I hate to waste the ingredients, but I won’t be making them again.

  • Wonderful recipe, I want to make more but I wanted to be in a caloric deficit and I know I’m going to eat a lot of these when I get hungry, would you recommend if I reduced the amount of oatmeal by one cup or would that worsen the texture?

  • Gonna try these! I am a dedicated, committed rugby player who’s going to the gym too, so nutrition is a big deal for me. Skipping processed food as much as possible is one of the things I try to follow, so I’m very happy that I’m about to switch the processed protein bars which I buy online, with real ingrediënts:). Thanx in advance!

  • I’m in love with this recipe! I’ve tried your other no-bake granola bars and while they are wonderful they definitely are sticky and prone to falling apart. This ones look more put together! And the rice cereal is interesting.

  • Omg Cai Cai so nostalgic I love granola bars! The fact that you made three different flavors are so awesome! I would’ve added either raisins or dried cranberries to the peanut butter ones

  • Great video!

    For my brothers and sisters that need to gain and eat-to-maintain, this video gives us a good idea as to how we can make some peanut butter fudge brownies!!!

  • I’m a friend sorry I have not been in the comments section lately still dealing with the passing of my loved one we’re having the funeral tomorrow just wanted to pop in to say hi ������ smooches

  • They Look Delicious,Jason. Happy New Year,To you and Yours from Canada.��. I haven’t been,on much so I didn’t know about your Computer. Glad it’s on,the Mend.

  • Those look awesome! I actually see bars as an extra source of calories for if you want a quick snack and can’t get a meal in, do you take them a lot? Great video:)

  • Very simple recipe I like it. I hate a long list of ingredients, for a simple energy bar lol. your video is perfect thank you for uploading it I will be using it:-)

  • Cool! Does it need to be refrigerated or can it be thrown in a backpack, purse or day bag…etc? I’m assuming this expires at some point?

  • Nearly all dried fruit has added processed sugar on it to stop it sticking together in the bag. so make sure you read your packets.

  • Natural or not, that’s still a lot of sugar and fat, should be used as “energy” bars rather than snacks. but great recipe, i’ll have to try it with different kind of dried fruit to replace the dates as i’m really not found of them…

    Thank you for the recipe!  wouldn’t mixing some sorts of oatmeal to it be a goo idea?

  • That’s very good. You can also add some desiccated coconut or dried cherries / cranberries / physalis / mulberries / insert random dried fruit here and it will all taste nice. Thanks for the idea! And, a quick question: Do you have any plans for hosting the next stream? It’s been a while:)

  • what is the consistency of the bars in the end? hard or squishy? i was waiting for you to pick one up and eat it but you never did lol

  • Thanks,I’m a grade 6 learner and this year we need to make our own snack bar.You really helped me!I will use this as my snack bar!Thanks For Your Support!

  • I’ve been wanting to look for a recipe the past couple weeks for these to make my son for school instead of buying the really bad stuff,but hadn’t got to it yet. This video popped up and I’m so grateful. Saved and will be making soon.

  • Really like your videos man. Watching nearly all of them. So much cool and easy stuff you are making that is definitely worth trying out!:D

  • you could also add peanut butter, chocolate syrup, caramel, M&M’s, marshmallow cream, granulated sugar and cupcakes just to make it a bit healthier. 😉

  • Sorry I’m just an idiot, just never understand when people call a bar a protein bar when they always seem to be composed mostly of carbohydrates?

  • I don’t have a childhood fav as I grew up in a time when Granola Bars hadn’t been invented yet:-)..but I love your recipes and will definitely give these a try.

  • Hi! I love these bars and I had a question. Is there any alternative for the vanilla protein powder? Please reply as I want to make these yummy treats! Thanks

  • Oats contain only 13% protein and can not be considered rich source of protein. Too much back ground disturbing music spoiled the video.

  • Why do all these protein bar recipes have to be loaded with dates and strange powders? Dates have piles of sugar, and the powders are processed garbage.

  • I recently started making my own granola bars at home (so much better than store-bought) so I am really excited to try your recipes now!

  • If I left out the puffed rice would it still work? I’m trying to make them without plastic waste and puffed rice I cant find in bulk

  • I like your creative, but disagree 2 things. 1st, u r too afraid of animal product’s fat such as full fat milk or egg yolk. These fat from good protien source main cause of weight gaining, but Sugar that you don’t mind cause weight gaining and fatty liver! Because it contain high fructose, yes, fruit’s sugar.
    Fortunately, these recipes contain some fibers, so fibers may safe intestine’s absorbtion fron fructose.
    Ppl turns to wrong direct coz they’re too afraid and never read the real research papers.

  • thank u. i m so afraid of making protein bars. i will try tomorrow i hve dates at home protein shake i just need to get almonds md its done

  • I made these and they are awesome! Used Macadamia nuts because that’s what I had and was delish indeed!! Thanks for the recipe so quick and easy to have something healthy:)

  • If you really want to loose weight fast remove the chocolate or honey from your bars but sustainability is really the most important part of a diet so I guess do what works for you

  • Are vegan chocolate chips and the marshmallows even healthy for the digestive system? I’m trying to reset my health. And want to stay away from processed chemicals, additives, fillers as much as possible! My nervous system gets all wacko when I eat processed stuff:(

  • i’ve been struggling with the individually wrapped granola bars because they’re so easy to just grab on the go or have in my bag and i’m not sure how to make sustainable packaging:(

  • Finally!! I’ve been wanting to make some vegan granola bars especially after finding a delicious homemade granola recipe, but had no idea how to make em stick together and turn it into a nice bar haha! and definitely true, any granola bar or even energy bar that are vegan are 4-5 euros, its ridiculous! most of them aren’t even that healthy or nutritious so I stopped buying them. I’m not a full vegan yet as I’m recovering from an ED, but damn have I been enjoying so many vegan recipes recently that I’m about to turn, and this recipe is definitely helping that ��

  • Thanks for sharing these easy recipes! Your recipe for chocolate on your website uses coconut oil. Is there another oil you can use other than coconut oil? I hate the taste of coconut.

  • You are so right. Vegan/plant-based granola bars are so expensive, which is weird since they use such affordable, cheap ingredients like oats. I make my own bars with oats that I buy in bulk (I have like 4kg of oats right now, lol!), some cheap tinned jam, and some cinnamon, maple flavoured syrup (not genuine maple syrup because it’s too expensive) and maybe a flax egg and some regular white sugar. Double the amount of bars for half the price!

  • I love the gigantic ones; stick one in my back pocket and swagger through my workplace. ��They see my rolled oats, they salivatin’ ��  Since becoming a vegan, I, too, talk to the packaged foods at the grocery store, usually swearing under my breath. I guess this is becoming more common as more people try plant-based foods and get sticker shock, because nobody seems to notice my muttering. TFP: )

  • I was that girl cussing out the granola bars for being $5.85 a piece. What nerve! Thank you for sharing because I literally made your recipe two hours ago, can’t wait to try!
