Choc Chip Granola Bars Recipe 786x1048


Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups (6 oz) mixed nuts, chopped
  • 2 cups (6 oz) shredded coconut
  • 2 tbs almond flour
  • 1/4 cup (2 oz) cacao nibs
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs (ideally free-range)
  • 4 oz 100% cacao dark chocolate


Choc Chip Granola Bars

  • Pre-heat your oven to 350F.
  • Place the chopped nuts, shredded coconut, almond flour, cacao nibs, cinnamon and salt into a bowl, mix well and set aside.
  • In another bowl place the coconut oil, almond butter, honey and vanilla. Melt these together and stir until well combined.
  • In a small bowl beat the eggs. Once beaten stir the eggs into the dry mixture until well combined. Next add the melted, wet mixture to the rest of the ingredients and stir until completely combined.
  • Line a square tin with parchment and spoon the mixture into the tin. Press into the tin until the surface is completely flat. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden.

Chocolate Topping

  • In a clean bowl melt the dark chocolate, ensuring it is completely melted. Once melted put this into either an icing or a ziplock bag.
  • Remove the granola from the oven to cool. Once cool take the icing bag (or cut the corner off the ziplock bag) and drizzle the granola thoroughly with the melted chocolate.
  • Refrigerate until firm and then cut into either squares or slices. Store in the fridge in an airtight container.


  • If you can't tolerate chocolate, omit the chocolate topping and cacao nibs.
  • Use a variety of nuts (and seeds) that you can tolerate.

  1. mine fell apart. taste delicious, but when I went to cut them after cooling in the fridge for several hours they crumbled to granola. what did I do wrong?

      Hi Diana
      I’m sorry to hear that. I wonder if you made any substitutions or alterations to the recipe? They can be a little bit crumbly, but they should definitely hold their shape as a bar and not turn into a pile of granola (although choc chip granola also sounds yummy!).
      Kind regards

  2. Made these last night and they are amazing. I couldn’t add honey because of an allergy so I added yacon syrup. Can they go in the freezer? How long do they last in the refrigerator?

    1. Hi Koula
      So happy to hear you like them! They will last about a week in the fridge or a few months in the freezer.

    2. Absolutely loved these! I melted the chocolate over a saucepan and added honey and vanilla to make it sweeter before I poured it over the bar.
