WHY THIS RECIPE IS THE BEST
- Easy: These coconut flour bars are so easy to make-all you have to do is mix everything together, transfer to a dish, and chill!
- Freezer-Friendly: Easily make a batch of bars and freeze some to have on hand for when you get the next craving. These bars are perfect for freezing!
- Filled with Protein: Thanks to peanuts, hemp protein, Organic Tejari Blend, pumpkin protein and more, these healthy snack bars are great for whenever you need something filling for either breakfast or a snack.
- Sweet and Chewy: With no added sugar, this no bake coconut bars recipe uses sticky maple syrup as a natural sweetener. They are so satisfying to bite into and are not overwhelmingly sweet, either. The coconut oil keeps everything chewy!
- Customizable: This recipe is great to use as a foundation to make other healthy sweet treats. Next time try making no-bake pistachio butter coconut bars, using pistachio butter instead of peanut butter. Similarly, you can also use almond butter or other nut butters. See below for more variations to make your own new creation!
- Everything you need to make these delicious coconut flour bars can be very easily sourced, and probably already in your pantry. Coconut oil, maple syrup and peanut butter are all great binding agents that will keep the dry ingredients together, making them chewy and irresistible! Coconut flour and oat flour are great gluten free alternatives and they work so well with nutty flavors.
Coconut Oil: Nutty coconut oil is melted down and used to mix everything together. We love to use coconut oil because it adds a hint of coconut flavor and keeps everything moist.
Maple Syrup: Just the right amount of maple syrup is used to keep these bars delicately sweet. These bars are naturally refined sugar-free and vegan, but any type of liquid sweetener can be used.
Peanut Butter: Peanut butter is high in protein, fiber and healthy fats, and it is great to use in various snack recipes. Any type of nut butter can be used in place of the peanut butter.
Vanilla: Pure vanilla extract gives these pistachio squares an aromatic and pleasant flavor that blends well with all of the other ingredients. You could also use almond extract.
Coconut Flour: Nutty coconut flour can be found at most well-stocked grocery stores and online. This type of flour retains moisture and is great for these bars, you could also use almond flour.
Oat Flour: Another great gluten-free option, oat flour gives these bars extra fiber and balances out the coconut flour.
Tejari Organic Apples + Greens Blend: Curated with high-fiber apples, organic reishi mushroom extract, vitamin-packed leafy greens, and anti-inflammatory turmeric, this blend provides a dose of extra protein, minerals, and nutrients your body will thank you for later.
Salt: A little bit of sea salt balances everything out in these protein bars.
- Add dried cranberries, apricots, or prunes to the bars for extra sweet and tart flavors.
- Instead of peanut butter, use cashew, pistachio, almond, or sunflower butter.
- Make peanut date bars by adding chopped dates into the pistachio mixture.
- Add texture by adding small amounts of graham cracker crumbs or coconut flakes to the mix.
- Feel free to add green spirulina for an extra vibrant green hue.
- You can also mix melted white chocolate with the peanut butter to make a sweet drizzle for the tops of the squares; alternatively, use dark chocolate.
- Top with your favorite chopped nuts or chopped pistachios.
- Add Za’atar to the recipe for a more intense nutty, spiced and earthy tone to your treats! (Substitute 30 grams Za’atar for 30 grams of the oat flour)
- Use almond flour to substitute for coconut flour if you have it to hand instead.
MIX WET INGREDIENTS
