So I promised you chocolate today. And I have granola bars. Chewy coconut granola bars! But I did slather chocolate on top of them so I didn’t lie. I was actually planning on something a little more decadent, but then my kids loved these bars so much that I needed to make them again to get the recipe the way I wanted. And then I figured I might as well share them with all of you!
If I’m making something twice in a matter of 4 days, then that probably means that it needs to be shared, right? And these granola bars definitely needed to be shared. I think I’ve finally found a go to chewy granola bar recipe, that I’m already envisioning many different varieties of! AND, it’s nut free!!
Maybe that doesn’t matter to all of you, and believe me, I love peanut butter and nuts in granola bars as much as the next person, but I can’t send it to school in my kids lunches. So I needed a good nut free version. And I wanted one that wasn’t loaded with butter and sugar instead. That’s been hard to come by.
But this is it. Nut free, pretty low sugar, and half of it is honey. And coconut oil instead of butter. And you could totally skip the chocolate on top if you want them to be even healthier, but it’s dark chocolate so that’s basically a health food. At least that’s how I justify it. Join me. It means more chocolate.
