Shopping List

Before we dive into the recipe, let's make sure you have all the necessary ingredients on hand. Here's your shopping list:

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free oats

  • ½ cup almond flour

  • ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut

  • ¼ cup chia seeds

  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds

  • ¼ cup dried cranberries (unsweetened)

  • ¼ cup chopped almonds

  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips (dairy-free)

Wet Ingredients:

  • ½ cup natural almond butter

  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup

  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.

Step 2: In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients: gluten-free oats, almond flour, shredded coconut, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, chopped almonds, and dark chocolate chips. Mix well to ensure even distribution.

Step 3: In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: almond butter, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Make sure the mixture is well combined and smooth.

Step 4: Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until all the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated, forming a sticky mixture.

Step 5: Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking pan. Use a spatula or the back of a spoon to press it firmly and evenly into the pan, ensuring it is tightly packed.

Step 6: Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until the edges turn golden brown.

Step 7: Once baked, remove the pan from the oven and let it cool completely. Once cooled, transfer the pan to the refrigerator and chill for at least 1 hour to allow the bars to set.

Step 8: Once fully set, remove the bars from the pan using the parchment paper and cut them into desired shapes and sizes.

Enjoy your homemade energy bars immediately, or store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week.

These delectable energy bars are perfect for a quick snack on the go, a pre-workout boost, or a post-workout recovery treat. Feel free to experiment with different variations by adding dried fruits, nuts, or seeds of your choice.
