Looking for a healthy homemade granola bar recipe to help you get through your afternoon or evening cravings? You’ve gotta try my No Bake Dark Chocolate Almond Bars with Coconut. They’re vegan, gluten-free, and have no added sugar! How sweet is that?
My clients are always asking me for recipes for a homemade energy bar that’s healthier than store bought. And of course, it has to be delicious! I’ve done it with these lip-smackin’ chocolate almond coconut squares. They taste yummy enough to be a dessert but they’re healthy enough to enjoy as a snack. They’re my new go-to DIY granola bar or energy bar alternative. I love that they’re no bake and super easy.
Another thing I love about these Dark Chocolate Almond bars is they’re both sweet and salty, so they appeal to all tastes. Isn’t sweet and salty the yummiest combo? And you can feel good about the fact that the sweetness comes from whole fruit: dates! That way you’re getting fiber and other nutrients into your coconut squares.
These energy bars help you tackle any chocolate cravings while also getting in nutritious ingredients and upping the protein, fiber and healthy fats to keep you satisfied longer.
My dark chocolate almond energy bars tick so many boxes: they’re the perfect recipe to do for meal prep so you have something healthy rather than falling prey to a vending machine, bakery or coffee shop run to get something sweet.
These bars are perfect to bring to work. Just be prepared with the recipe link because your coworkers are going to want to make their own!
I first made these dark chocolate almond squares with coconut to bring to a dinner party. They were a huge hit! They’re great for a potluck or party. I also recently made them for my friend’s birthday and she has been politely but persistently reminding me to post the recipe ever since!
This healthier granola bar or protein bar stores easily and keeps well. Just wrap them up in parchment paper or plastic wrap or keep them in airtight containers where they can be in a single layer.
These energy bars will last in the fridge for 3 weeks. Although I’ve never gone that long without eating them all. I’ll be amazed if you do! Let me know 🙂
