Double Chocolate Granola Bars

Prep Time 5 minutes Yields 8-10 bars     adjust servings

 All you need is 7 simple ingredients to whip up these Double Chocolate Granola Bars. Vegan, gluten free and no cooking is required! 


  • 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder OR cocoa powder
  • 1 cup cashew butter
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 T chia seeds
  • 2 T flax meal
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (for topping)
  • water if needed


In a food processor, add the oats and cacao powder. Blend into a fine consistency.

Then add in the remaining ingredients, minus the chocolate chips.  If the batter seems a bit dry, you can add a little water until the mixture comes together. 

Once the batter is mixed, transfer to a lined baking dish.  Press the batter down firmly.  Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Press the chips into the bars.

Place in the fridge to chill for about 30 minutes.

Once chilled, cut into bars and store in an airtight container.

These bars should last a couple weeks in the fridge.  You can also freeze them up to 6 months. Enjoy!
