Chocolate Almond Granola Bars

Yields: 12 Servings Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 15 Mins

This granola bar recipe is the perfect treat when you’re looking for something sweet! The toasted coconut brings such good flavour along with the almond butter, and what is better than a chocolate drizzle to top it off?!

Although this is a “recipe”, there is no baking required and a lot of ingredients can be swapped. When making granola bars, I always throw in whatever I have in the pantry (dried fruit, nuts & seeds). These bars are also just as yummy without the chocolate drizzle if you’re looking to make them healthier.

The base of these bars are very similar to my Coconut Pecan Granola Bars recipe, let me know in the comments if there is another flavour combo you would like to see!
