Homemade Paleo Granola-Style Bars

| 2 Comments

Looking for a new version of a Paleo friendly bar to have around when hunger hits or to bring with you for a snack? Here’s a great recipe that I adapted from Wholesome Living Magazine that’s easy to make and uses only 4 pantry staple ingredients. They are crunchy, raw, and travel well.  I rotate between making these nutty bars and the Homemade Leah Paleo Energy Bars.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups dried unsweetened apricots
1/2 cup raw almonds
2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
pinch of salt

1. Pulse the apricots, almonds, half of the shredded coconut, and a pinch of salt in a food processor until finely ground.

2. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving about an inch overhang on all sides.

3. Transfer mixture to pan and press down firmly to form a rectangle. I used a heavy glass jar to push down hard enough to form a solid bar, but you can also use your hand.

4. Top with remaining 1 tablespoon of shredded coconut.

5. Transfer to refrigerator and leave until firm, about 15 minutes.

6. Use the parchment overhang to remove from pan. Slice into six bars.

  1. These were very good! At first bite right out of the oven I was a bit skeptical, but the trick is to pick them away in an air-tight cnenaitor overnight. The next morning they’ll be soft and chewy! I made these with dark chocolate, as I’m not super fond of semi-sweet. Also, going to try again substituting date sugar for the white sugar. With the date sugar, should I throw in a tsp of vanilla to ensure sweetness? Date sugar smells like raisins, and I’ve never tried it before!

  2. Hi Adriana, I am glad you tried the recipe although I am not sure if you followed it correctly. For one, the recipe doesn’t call for any sugar or date sugar. And for another they are not baked. Either way I am glad you found it useful and enjoyed what you made!
