Make These Paleo Breakfast Bars for on the Go and Never Skip Breakfast Again!

Who’s guilty of skipping breakfast now and again?

Before I started the Paleo diet I really did this quite a lot, that’s not a good way to ever ease weight loss, in fact in can cause weight gain by encouraging you to snack on processed foods that are easy to pick up from shops or canteens. We’ve discovered a way to ensure you get a decent Paleo breakfast, even if you’re too busy to eat before you leave the house!

These aren’t just a great nutritious and filling Paleo breakfast but also could be an amazing mid afternoon Paleo snack to give you a truly natural energy boost. Seeds are packed with vitamins and will give you a good amount of protein too. Perfect for one of ‘those’ mornings and you need to grab a quick Paleo breakfast on the go.

My Paleo breakfast bar nutrition

Being Paleo for me is about enjoying natural foods and with these delights comes mountainous nutritional benefits. Everything you put in should make a positive difference to your body and your mind.

These bars are packed with highly nutritious nuts and seeds that will give you a spring in your step naturally. The almonds are packed full of dietary fibre and high in vitamin E, which will no doubt give your skin a boost too. Poppy seeds provide you with a range of minerals that are not easy to find in most foods, such as manganese, zinc and potassium. Not only will pumpkin seeds add a delicious crunch to these Paleo breakfast bars, but also contain health benefiting antioxidants, they too contain vital mineral such as copper. Sesame seeds contain a vitamin B-complex called Niacin, this enhances brain activity and can help reduce anxiety, who knew? And finally it’s worth mentioning sunflower seeds – not only do they contain an abundance of goodies but myth has it they help with bad breath.

  1. Could I substitute Chia seeds for poppy seeds? Also, is there another sub for red palm oil? I don’t have any on hand, although after reading the benefits I should! Thanks for the recipe!

      Hi Melissa, glad you like the recipe, be sure to mail me a picture of the finished product 🙂
      You can chose another paleo friendly oil, like coconut oil for sure. And yup chai seeds will work too!

  2. Has anyone tried substituting a different juice? I am intolerant of oranges (so annoying as the juice is in every pre mixed juice and smoothie!).

      Hi Becki, you could easily cut oranges out. I often put a splash of water in the blender, instead of any juice at all. 🙂

      1. Fantastic, thank you. I am definitely going to try to make some over the weekend ! I might try swapping in some prune juice…. Will keep you posted!

  4. Hi Jessica,
    The taste of the breakfast bars is great!
    But they are very very very sticky 🙁
    After I let my bars cool down and cut them, they looked more like granola then bars…
    What did I do wrong?

      Hello, thanks for the comment. 🙂
      I will add this in the recipe to help others, but this is what you can try next time:
      Really press the mixture into the tray, use a smaller tray to do this.
      Perhaps after cooling, refrigerate for an hour or so.
      Glad they tasted good, keep me posted how your next batch goes!

      Jess, 🙂

  5. Hi guys, I had exactly the same thing – I even only used half the amount of honey and the mixture was still gloopey and not bar like at all. I have stuck it in the freezer to see if that hardens it up. But I wondered about maybe mixing in some almond flour to make them a but heavier?

      Argh so so sorry to hear this. I’m going to look at my recipe again and see what I can suggest. Almond flour is a great idea. Perhaps only a tiny amount of honey is best. I used a cup but made quite a few. I’ll edit the post 🙂

  6. Gutted, made these last nights before reading the reviews. It’s just a gloppy sticky mix of nuts. Tastes fab but can’t be cut into bars, going to just have to eat spoonfuls maybe as a pancake topping.
    Did you use set honey or runny honey? I’m wondering if that’s what’s gone wrong as I followed everything exact to the recipe, I used runny honey.
    Hope I can get this to set next time as it does taste super!

  7. I tried making these but the honey made the mixture gooey. I even tried putting the bars in for a longer time at a higher temp but they are still gooey. Thoughts???

      I’m working on this recipe again, I first made them and they came out well. I wonder if I missed something when writing it out. I’ll remake and check 🙂

  8. I made these with chia seeds instead of poppy seeds. They were very gooey and I think it’s because the cooking temperature is celsius, not fahrenheit. A 180 F oven really just warms it and melts the honey done in my opinion. The taste was good, but I had to use a spoon. Not a grab and go thing. I’m going to try it again soon.
