I can’t hide it – I’m pretty hooked on grain free granola bars of all kinds right now. Ever since making my originals, I can’t go a day without a crunchy, chewy, sweet little bite!

I feel like the possibilities are endless when you’re making them at home – add some of this and that (and by this and that I’m referring to chocolate, and chocolate) and BOOM! You have a perfect sweet (but not too sweet) snack to get you through those rough, perhaps hangry, points in the day.

Honestly, the mixture looks so good, I’m not sure how they even make it to the freezer to become granola bars 🙂

Anyway, I wanted to go for a really deep dark chocolate grain-free granola bar here, with both raw cacao added to the mix AND mini chocolate chips to mix in at the end. Double chocolate has never failed me – and therefore I’ll trust it until the end…or until the day it somehow doesn’t work out.

No worries, because today is not that day – these double chocolate grain free granola bars have been my go-to snack for the past week, and they’re still going strong! That is, because I’ve hidden them from the rest of my family, of course.

Aside from the double chocolate, I did something else new to me with these bars – I used VitaFiber™ IMO syrup to sweeten them!

VitaFiber™ IMO is a natural, plant-based prebiotic fiber sweetener that adds just the right touch of sweetness to food, beverages, and baked (or no-bake!) goods.

There are no chemical overtones or bitter aftertaste here – just a clean, simple, naturally sweet flavor that I personally loved the first time I tried it.

VitaFiber™ IMO blends in seamlessly into foods, beverages, and recipes for a sweet finish. It’s great in protein bars, smoothies, tea or coffee, cooking and baking. I found that it worked perfectly for these granola bars both as a sweetener, and as a binder to create that deliciously chewy texture we all crave!

The ingredients speak for themselves – the IMO is sourced from tapioca starch (which I love and use all the time!) plus water. The flavor is very mildly sweet, which is perfect for Paleo baking when you want to minimize added sugar.

You can find out more information about VitaFiber IMO, including where to purchase, by visiting their website here. You can also purchase directly from Amazon as well (prime shipping anyone?).

The bars themselves are incredibly easy to make – which is one reason I just can’t seem to stop making new ones!

You will need a food processor to pulse the nuts, to get that perfect crunch, and breaking them down so they bind together nicely.

Once you have everything mixed up, you’ll need to press the mixture down (very firmly) into a square baking pan lined with parchment paper.

The parchment is essential so that the bars don’t stick, and makes removing them after setting a total breeze.

You’ll need to set these in the freezer for at least an hour before cutting them to ensure they’re good to go, and avoid a crumbly mess when you try to cut them!

No worries if you do get a few crumbles though – you can easily stick them back together and re-set them.

Once they’re totally set, I recommend storing them in the refrigerator for the best texture. The freezer is fine too, although they’ll need to thaw a bit since they’ll become very firm when frozen.

I hope you’re ready for an incredibly tasty go-to snack! I’m especially excited or you to try these since they’re my new favorite! Let’s get our aprons out (because chocolate!) and no-bake!

Instructions

  1. Place the nuts in a food processor and pulse several times to “chop” them into a crumbly texture – a few larger pieces are a good thing – don’t overmix!

  2. Transfer the nuts to a large mixing bowl and stir in coconut flakes, salt, and protein powder or collagen, if using.

  3. Place melted coconut oil in a small sauce pan and whisk in the almond butter, cacao powder and VitaFiber IMO Syrup. Set heat to low and whisk while everything melts together. Once mixture is smooth and well combined, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.

  4. Pour the wet mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir to fully combine – I used a silicone spatula for this step. Thoroughly mix to make sure all the dry mixture is coated. Once coated, gently stir in the chocolate chips.

  5. Line an 8 x 8″ or 9 x 9″ square pan with parchment paper along the bottom and sides, with extra up the sides for easy removal. Transfer mixture in and press down, using your hands, or another piece of parchment paper to get it packed tightly into the pan.

  6. Cover the top with parchment or plastic wrap, then set in the freezer for at least 1 hour to firm, or longer if you have time.

  7. Remove pan from freezer and grab two ends of the parchment paper to remove the bars, set on a cutting board.

  8. Using a long very sharp knife, cut into 20 bars. You can wrap them in parchment individually storing in the fridge (for up to two weeks) or freezer for longer.

  9. Bars will start to melt around room temp due to the coconut oil, so they’ll need to be kept chilled to stay firm. Enjoy!
