Recipe: Blueberry AIP-Paleo Breakfast Bars

February 24, 2022

When people make a lifestyle change that involves their eating habits, they often struggle with what to make for breakfast. That's what today's recipe is all about. It is for blueberry AIP Paleo breakfast bars that are meant to simplify your morning.

I get why breakfast is tough; the Standard American Diet (let me mention, it's no coincidence that it's abbreviated SAD) tells us to eat grains, grains, and more grains. But these grains are so irritating to our gut. So drop the cereal and toast routine, because it's setting you on a blood sugar roller coaster for the entire day. These blueberry AIP Paleo breakfast bars are a far better choice!

Start the Morning Off Right

If you want yet another breakfast idea, I wrote another blog recently showing exactly what I like to make in the mornings, which you can find HERE.

And if you're interested in learning more about what I think Americans need to change about their health -- and specifically, my top 4 tips to do so -- you can find that blog post on my site, too.

These healthy blueberry pie bars aren't just for breakfast, though. They're great when you want a sweet treat any time of day. So, let's get into each step involved in creating these tasty bars!

First, you're going to gather your ingredients for your blueberry crumble bars:

  • Coconut flour
  • Arrowroot flour
  • Grass-fed gelatin
  • Maple syrup
  • Coconut oil
  • Coconut milk
  • Frozen, organic wild blueberries
  • Vanilla extract
  • Coconut sugar

It'll be easiest to have three separate bowls here. One is for the crust ingredients. The second is for the filling ingredients. And, as you can probably guess, the blueberry crumble topping will be in the third bowl.


When your crust is mixed up for these paleo breakfast bars, you'll want to press it into an 8x8 pan. Line it with parchment paper first, which makes it so much easier to remove the bars and clean up the pan later. Press it down with your fingers until the thickness is even. Then, bake for 5 minutes to allow the crust to set.

It'll look about like the picture above when you take it out.


Next, you're going to spoon the filling over the baked crust, gently spreading it out evenly.


Finally, follow it up with the contents of the bowl you mixed the blueberry crumble bar topping in.

The last step in the process is to let all these layers of goodness get baked together.


That'll take about 25-30 minutes, so you can get all your cleanup easily completed in that window of time. Nobody likes a messy kitchen!


After they've baked, you'll have to let the bars cool a little, which I know isn't easy. Here's what you'll be looking at:

Let's get to some common questions about these blueberry crumble bars.

Do these paleo breakfast bars contain sugar?

There is no added sugar contained in this blueberry crumble bar recipe. It gets sweetness from maple syrup and coconut sugar, which are far better sweetener alternatives than the sugar on the typical grocery store shelves. Be certain that the maple syrup you're buying is 100% maple syrup and not loaded with added sugars. And if you're interested in learning more about which sugar substitutes aren't that great of choices, please check out this YouTube video I made.

Are these blueberry crumble bars healthy?

Since there is no processed sugar or flour, this blueberry breakfast bar is a far better choice to start off your day than your usual grain-filled cereals and toast. And as an added bonus, blueberries are naturally sweet while being low in sugar. They're one of the berries I eat most often.

Can this recipe for healthy blueberry pie bars be made ahead of time?

If you've got company coming but don't want to spend the time they're with you in the kitchen baking, look no further. These paleo breakfast bars can be made at your convenience. Just store them in the fridge to keep them fresh until you need them -- that is, if the bars can last that long! They're an easy DIY breakfast bar that can be enjoyed at any time of day.

Is this a gluten-free blueberry breakfast bar?

Yes, it is! People with dietary restrictions such as dairy-free or gluten-free will enjoy these blueberry AIP Paleo breakfast bars. You don't have to feel concerned about this recipe irritating your gut, either, since there are no grains included.
