Grain-Free Granola Bars

Ingredients

  • 1 cup nuts (any combination works great!)
  • 1 cup raisins, or other mixed dried fruit
  • 2 cups unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 3 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup nut butter (peanut, cashew, or almond all work great)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 ounces OPTIONAL chopped dark chocolate for topping

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add nuts, raisins, and coconut to food processor. Pulse until coarse and crumbly.
  • Add 3 ounces chopped dark chocolate. Pulse quickly until well chopped, but not pulverized.
  • Mix honey and nut butter in a bowl. Then add to food processor and pulse to mix. I find that pulsing, then pausing for a moment, and repeating several times, works very well to thoroughly blend the mixture.
  • Dump into a 13x9" pan, and press down well.
  • Bake 20 minutes, until coconut is just beginning to turn brown.
  • If topping with chocolate, sprinkle 3 ounces dark chocolate over warm granola bars. Once it's melted, spread smooth with a spatula or knife.
  • Allow to cool completely before cutting.
