Great Gluten/Dairy Free Bars

February 7th, 2014

This is a super easy recipe to make your own bars: they are great for an afternoon energy boost or for your kids lunch box.

Coconut Chocolate Bars:

  • 2 cups  almond flour or gluten free oat flour   (I use oat flour when my kids want these for morning snack in their nut free classrooms at school)
  • 2 cups pitted dates
  • 1  heaping tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all ingredients except chocolate chips in a food processor and blend until it forms a thick dough. Fold in chocolate chips. Spread into a 9X9 pan. No need to grease the bottom. Score the bars into 12 equal rectangles. Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the edges begin to brown. Cool on a wire rack. I freeze these bars and then I can just drop them into lunch boxes as needed!

Second alternative:

Cashew/Date Bars:

  • 2 cups cashews
  • 2 cups dates

Prepare, cook and store the same as the Chocolate coconut bars.
