Mango Bars (No Bake)

We are officially in the summer season here in Greece and we are craving often something sweet and cold to chase the heat away. So I decided for these healthy, sweet, light, fruity and energy Mango Bars, that doesn't require too much work.

If you don't like walnuts, you can replace them with your favorite nuts. I highly recommend a good quality of molasses for this recipe, because of its taste and its super benefits. Molasses is a good source of iron, selenium, copper, calcium and many more. In case you want to replace it, then please use honey.

I also recommend this recipe as a healthy cold snack for kids during summer time. My kids loved it!



Servings: 12

Preperation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 3 hours


200 gr. oat flakes

100 gr. walnuts

150 gr. molasses

2 ripe mangoes

1 envelope gelatine

2/3 water

1 tbsp. coconut flakes for sprinkle (optional)


  • In a food processor add oat flakes, walnuts and beat for a minute. Place molasses in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Add molasses to the oats mixture and beat until homogenised.

  • In an oven pan (20x25 cm) with parchment paper, place the mixture, spread it all over the pan and press with your hands. Place in the fridge until needed.

  • In a small saucepan add water and bring it to a boil. Immediately remove from the heat and sprinkle the gelatine over the water. Let bloom for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, slice the mangoes, scoop out the filling and place in a food processor. Beat for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Pour the gelatin into the blender with the mango puree and beat for 1 more minute or until combined. Pour the mango puree over the oat mixture and place in the refrigerator. If desired sprinkle some coconut flakes

  • Refrigerate the bars for at least 3 hours or overnight, until set. The mango topping should be firm. To slice, run a knife under hot water, wipe dry and then slice bars.

  • Refrigerate any leftovers up to 4 days.
