Recipe | Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Choc Granola Bars

Recipe 1

These guilt-free granola bars the perfect pre or post yoga snack! They also are an easy and fast recipe to mix up on the weekend so you have a healthy snack or dessert on hand throughout the week that will fuel you naturally. The mix of cacao butter and orange really give these bars a special kick that makes them taste really decadent, compared to a regular granola bar. These keep well in the fridge, are easy to take on the run and are loved by kids and adults alike. Gluten free and dairy free as well as free from refined sugar or preservatives mean they are suitable for many dietary preferences.



  • 2 cups natural crispy rice cereal
  • 1 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup desiccated coconut
  • ½ cup flaked almonds
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ goji berries
  • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds


  • ½ cup coconut nectar
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons cacao butter
  • Optional – Chocolate to drizzle
  • Method:

Place all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.

In a saucepan over a low heat, melt the coconut oil, cacao butter, peanut butter, vanilla and coconut nectar.

Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and mix very well to combine. Transfer the mixture to a lined slice tin and press down very well. I placed another sheet of baking paper over top to smooth out and press down well.

Refrigerate for 2-3 hours until firm and then cut into bars.

If you wish to add the chocolate drizzle, simply melt down a block of your favourite dark raw chocolate and drizzle over top. Return to the fridge again to set.
