These Paleo Chewy Granola Bars are a great grab and go breakfast. Easy to make and so delicious! They are gluten free, dairy free, and sweetened only with honey. You will love them!
These bars are so easy to make and come together quickly. The most time consuming part is chopping the nuts and that’s not too bad. I used pecans and almonds, but you can use whatever nuts you have on hand. I was thinking how good these would be with cashews! Once they are baked they are thick, chewy, and just so good!
These are so soft and chewy. One important tip is to pack them tightly- press them down in the pan before baking, after baking, and even press them together after cutting if needed. This helps ensure they stay together if you’re carrying them around.
The chocolate drizzle is optional, but makes it look so pretty. They’re definitely sweater that way and more dessert-like. These are so good on their own though! Packed with chopped nuts, coconut, and honey they are a great snack that will satisfy your hunger and are sweet, but just the right amount of sweetness
I want to answer a couple questions I may get. If you do have any others, let me know in the comments section below.
Can I replace the honey with another sweetener?
-Unfortunately, no. The stickiness of the honey is needed to help hold these bars together.
Can they be made egg free?
-Possibly. I haven’t tried it myself, but a flax or chia egg may work.
Can I use different nuts/nut butter?
-Yes! Just make sure the measurements are the same and it should work great.
What is the calorie count per bar?
-I don’t know because I don’t count calories or fat or carbs. There are many places online you can calculate that if needed.
