Granola bars should be one of the great snacks, but nearly all store-bought and even homemade granola bars have way too much sugar and not enough good fats or protein in them. This chewy granola bar recipe fixed those problems with six healthy ingredients to produce the perfect granola bar.


  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • ¾ cup creamy almond butter, unsalted
  • 2½ cups organic, gluten-free rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup desiccated coconut


  1. In a small pot, over low heat, add the almond butter and maple syrup, stirring until well-combined but are not hot (this should happen quickly).
  2. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add the remaining ingredients.
  4. Pour the warm almond butter mixture atop, stirring until well-incorporated.
  5. In an 8×8 baking dish, greased with coconut oil, dump, pack and flatten the mixture using your hands.
  6. Cover and refrigerate until firm (about an hour).
  7. Slice into bars or squares.
