Are any warning lights illuminated? (check engine light)

This could be ignition or fuel related. A failing fuel pump can cause this type of problem and not set any trouble codes (check engine light). It would be good to monitor your fuel pressure while driving to see if the pressure drops before the engine stalls. This may be the ignition coil or ignition module on the verge of failing so some diagnosis would be a good idea so money isn't wasted. hope this helps!
