These rich and hearty Coconuty Dark Chocolate Granola bars are perfect for a quick breakfast, an afternoon pick-me-up or a late night treat.


  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 cup coconut oil (softened then measured)
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups granola (I used Cascadian Farm’s Dark Chocolate Almond Granola)
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 cups chopped mixed nuts & seeds (I used a mix of pecans, walnuts, pistachios, almonds & sunflower seeds)
  • 11/2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 11/4 cups shredded coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the peanut butter, coconut oil, honey, brown sugar and cinnamon. Add the granola and oats and mix on low until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, stir together the chopped nuts, seeds, dark chocolate chips and coconut. Reserve 1 cup of this mixture to sprinkle on top of the bars before baking. Add the rest to the mixer and beat on low until just combined.
  4. Spoon the mixture into a lightly greased 9×13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with the reserved 1 cup (nut/seed/chocolate chip/coconut) mixture. Bake for 30-35 minutes for until bars are browned and crisp around the edge, set in the middle, and the coconut is lightly toasted on top.
  5. Cool for at least 2 hours before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
