I am always looking for healthy grab and go snacks!  Earlier this month, I posted a delicious Cinnamon & Honey Nut Crunch Cereal recipe and this recipe is a spin off of that recipe.  For this specific recipes I added some dried cranberries.  You could add so many different ingredients to customize these granola bars to your liking.  

 I like to add a little peanut butter and then drizzle some chocolate over the top.  I also think that coconut would taste amazing in these granola bars!  What combinations would you mix together to create your own favorite flavors?

 I like to wrap these granola bars in a little parchment paper and then tie them off with some twine.  They make the cutest gift ever!  Just put them in a nice tin and you have a delicious and yummy gift to give to your friends and family!

Organic Granola Bars ~ Gluten Free & Grain Free
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 10-12 granola bars
  • 1½ cup almond meal/flour (I grind my own almonds in my coffee grinder for a fine grind)
  • ½ cup pecan meal/flour (I grind my own pecans in my coffee grinder for a fine grind)
  • 2 tbsp packed coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼-1/2 tsp of unrefined sea salt (taste and adjust to desired taste)
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 3 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 cup raw milk, organic milk or fresh coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  1. Mix together the almond meal, pecan meal, coconut flour, cinnamon, sea salt and baking soda.
  2. In a small bowl mix together milk, honey and vanilla.
  3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients together and stir well.
  4. Stir in dried cranberries.
  5. Allow mixture to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  6. Stir lightly one more time and then place this mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with un-greased parchment paper. Pat out into a thin layer and form into individual bars.
  7. If you have a dehydrator, you can use your tray made for fruit leather. You will have to flip it over half way through the cooking time.
  8. Cook at 165 F for 10-18 hours. At the five hour mark I usually flip them over. If you are using your oven at your lowest setting, you might have to reduce the time. Cook until the granola bars are completely dry.
  9. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place.

    These are the BEST looking grain-free granola bars I have seen!  I just started the Whole30 and foresee myself continuing with little to no grains in the future.  I will definitely be making these!

    I make similar <a href=””>granola bar recipes</a> using flaxseed meal where you are using almond and pecan meal. Flax adds the omega-3 nutrition that we all need.
