Healthy, Chewy Almond & Coconut Granola Bars

Chewy Granola Bars

Ingredients

Scale

1 rounded cup toasted unsweetened coconut flakes 

1 1/2 cups dates, chopped 

1/3 cup honey 

1/2 cup natural peanut butter 

2 tsp pure vanilla extract 

1/3 rounded cup toasted almonds 

1/2 cup rolled oats 

1/4 cup almond flour 

1 tsp chia seeds 

1 tbsp ground flax seeds 

1/4 tsp kosher salt 

1/41/3 cup dark chocolate, chopped 

Instructions

  1. Line a 9×9 baking pan with parchment paper so that it hands over on all sides. Set aside. 
  2. In a non stick frying pan over medium low heat add the chopped dates, honey, peanut butter and vanilla
  3. Stir until the dates have started to break apart and the mixture has come together. This should take about 5-7 minutes in total.
  4. Transfer this mixture to a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients. The chocolate will melt if you add it now, which I liked. If you don’t want your chocolate to melt and you’d like it to stay in chunks refrigerate the mixture for 10 minutes before adding the chocolate.
  5. Transfer the mixture to your lines baking pan and pat it down so that it’s level and it reaches all corners.
  6. Allow the bars to set in the fridge for 30-45 minutes before slicing into 12 bars and serving. 
  7. Store the bars in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
