My raspberry and coconut oat bars were so tasty and really popular so I decided to experiment with different flavours. I decided to try making them with pineapple as it has such a tropical summery flavour and does not require much additional sweetener to taste amazing! Thanks to the gluten free oat base they are really filling and perfect for an energy boost. I added coconut to these pineapple oat bars to give them the flavour of a pina colada which is such an amazingly tropical cocktail!

Makes 9 bars



5 tbsp coconut oil, melted

4 tbsp maple syrup

150g gluten free rolled oats

150g gluten free porridge oats

230g fresh pineapple chunks

100ml almond milk

2 tsp maca powder (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)

3 tbsp desiccated coconut


  • Preheat the oven to 180oc and line an 8 inch square tin
  • Mix the coconut oil, 2 tbsp of coconut, almond milk, maca or vanilla, maple syrup and oats together in a bowl
  • Cut the pineapple chunks into small pieces, about 1cm and stir through the oat mixture
  • Press the mixture into the tin and sprinkle over the rest of the dessicated coconut
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until it has the texture of a soft flapjack
  • Leave to cool completely before cutting
