No Bake Sunflower-Flax Bites


The title of The Big Book of Gluten-Free Recipes: More Than 500 Easy Gluten-Free Recipes for Healthy and Flavorful Meals doesn’t lie: it is over 500 pages long and jam-packed with recipes.It covers everything  from breakfast to dessert, to sauces and more, and from omnivore meals to vegetarian and vegan friendly recipes.

I adapted a no bake bar recipe using sunflower butter instead of peanut butter, so Alistaire could enjoy them. Simple to make, even Walker can help me. The author offers up other suggestions, swapping in any favorite nut or seed butter, adding dried fruit/berries or nuts for the chocolate.

Delicious bars, but do remember they are very high in fiber…so yeah, don’t over indulge 😉


No Bake Sunflower-Flax Bites (As adapted from page 102)


  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats, GF if needed
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ½ cup natural sunflower butter
  • ½ cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup raw local honey
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract


Line a 8×8 or 9×9 pan with plastic wrap.

Stir the oats, chocolate chips and flax together in a large mixing bowl. Stir the sunflower butter, honey and vanilla together until smooth, stir into the dry ingredients, working in till mixed.

Spread into prepared pan, packing down. Refrigerate for an hour or more, cut into squares. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.
