Healthy Ginger Peach Oat Bars Fresh Peaches

My number one concern going into Fall is not pumpkin. It’s not even apples or pie.

It is how I am going to get through 6 whole months without peaches?!

I get a little peach obsessed in the summer. But then I quickly moved on to more decadent treats like these Peach Crisp Cupcakes and my peach pie recipe!

Peach lovers everywhere rejoice! These healthy bars use dried peaches as the base for a lightly sweetened snack. Though subtle, the peach flavor is definitely present and complimented by the crystallized ginger! The ginger brings the peaches seamlessly into Fall in a way that we will be able to enjoy all winter long!

You will love that these bars are delicious and packed with healthy ingredients like coconut oil, flax seeds, ginger, fruit and nuts!  The whole recipe only calls for 2 tablespoons of honey and no refined sugar. You can feel good about adding these gluten free, vegan bars to your diet!

Healthy Ginger Peach Oat Bars

These healthy Ginger Peach Oat Bars are gluten free, vegan and incredibly easy. With only 125 calories each, they will fill you up but not expand the waistline!
Prep: 30 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Total: 50 minutes
Servings: 20 Bars


  • 12 dried peach halves no added sugar
  • 2 ½ cups dried oats ground in a food processor
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed
  • ¼ cup wheat germ
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup toasted pecans ground in the food processor
  • ¼ cup toasted cashew nuts finely chopped
  • ½ cup dried pineapple finely chopped
  • ½ cup minced crystallized ginger measured after mincing (the less added sugar, the better)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 2 tablespoon local honey I use wildflower
  • ~ ¼ cup reserved peach cooking liquid
Makes: 8 x 8inch rectangle


  • Preheat your oven to 350°. Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper.
  • Place dried peaches in a small saucepan and cover with water until the water is approximately ½ inch above the fruit. Place over medium-high heat just until it comes to a low boil, turn down the heat to a low-simmer and simmer until plump. I let mine simmer for at least 30 minutes, but 20 will be okay. Because of the long simmer time, I set the peaches on before I begin measuring or chopping any other ingredient.
  • Place all other ingredients through ginger in a large mixing bowl. Make sure that the pineapple is very finely chopped because you just want the sweetness from the pineapple but not an actual pineapple flavor.
  • Place plump peaches in the bowl of a food processor, reserving the cooking liquid. Process the peaches until completely smooth, adding some reserved cooking liquid if necessary. The liquid will help them puree. It should look like baby food.
  • Add the puree, coconut oil and honey to the large bowl and mix with a large wooden spoon. If needed add some of the reserved cooking liquid. In the 3 test batches I made, I needed about ¼ cup additional liquid. You want the “batter” to be cohesive but not extremely sticky or wet.
  • Press into the prepared pan with the back of a wooden spoon. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the edges begin to brown.
  • Let cool and then cut into bars.


Store at room temperature for up to a week or in the freezer for several months. Wrap in wax paper and then place in a freezer bag prior to freezing. Take them out individual to thaw at room temperature!
I measured all ingredients before they were processed or chopped except the ginger.

    I mean, how am I supposed to go for that long without peaches???????????????? That mere thought is making me want to cry my eyes out, gurrrrl.
    On the brighter side, these bars look amaaaaaaaazing <3

  2. I was totally nodding along about the peaches – they’re my favorite summer fruit and I will definitely y miss them too 🙁 These bars look like the perfect way to keep enjoying peaches all year long though. Love that you used dried peaches – such a great idea and they sound amazing with the crystallized ginger! Can’t wait to try these out – pinning 🙂

  3. I love all the local love these bars have with the money and peach. They would be the perfect afternoon snack!

  4. These healthy bars look amazing. They would make a great snack, for sure, or even breakfast! Love that they are gluten free since I recently became gluten intolerant.

  5. Yum! These bars look incredible! I’m just really sad I don’t have a lot of the ingredients right now, but I definitely need to try these! I’ve been having too much junk food since school’s started O__O but these look way better than the chocolate chip cookies I’ve been eating lol.

    1. These would be a great snack between classes! I don’t know about looking better than CCC’s but they are certainly healthier! lol

  6. Now you are just being mean. You’re making me crave peaches when I’m up to my knees in apples and dreaming about pumpkins! I can only keep so many recipes and fruits in my head Miss Lindsey! Hahaha! Now, I’m adding another luscious recipe to my list. I am *loving* the looks of these, and those succulent peaches are seriously making me drool. I need to go clean my computer screen now. 🙂 LOL! Pinned so I can make these soon!!!

    1. Haha! Just store these bars away for the winter when you are fully sick of apples and pumpkin and need a little something different! Thanks for the pin!

  7. Love these bars.. I am making something similar with apples and bananas pretty often.. would love to try this pineapple and peach version

  8. YUM – these bars sound ah-mazing – with that dried pineapple and crystallized ginger – how do you stop at one? Even harder to exercise control knowing they are healthy!
