Unbaked Granola Bars

June 3, 2015

We love snacking on granola bars, especially ones that are quick to make and fruit-sweetened! Feel free to mix up the flavor by adding orange or lemon zest, ginger, or any other add ins you like!

Unbaked Granola Bars


  • 1/2 cup dates (packed)
  • 1/3 cup nut butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup coconut shreds
  • 2 T chia seeds
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

  1. Place first 4 wet ingredients in a food processor (I like to make nut butter in the food processor right before making this recipe!).
  2. Process until smooth and creamy. You may need to add 2-4 T more water if the mixture is on the dry side.
  3. Add the remaining 5 dry ingredients and process quickly (15-30 seconds) until everything is incorporated. Some oats will be pulverized, others will be whole.
  4. On a cutting board, form the mixture into a rectangle and cut into bars, squares, or roll into balls.
  5. The bars will firm up in the refrigerator. Keep refrigerated and enjoy!
