Paleo Grain Free Granola Snack Bars (AIP Option)

  • Author: Michelle
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 9 bars 1x


These grain free granola bars are the perfect gluten-free snack bar!


  • 8 dates, pitted
  • 2 cups almonds (try subbing sliced tigernuts for AIP/nut free)
  • 1 cup coconut chips 
  • 1/3 cup coconut butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup.
  • 1/4 cup dried blueberries
  • 2 tbsp dairy free chocolate chips (omit for AIP)
  • 4 tbsp collagen (I use vital proteins)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Line an 8×8″ baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. If the dates are hard, soften in warm water for 10 minutes.
  3. Using a food processor, process the dates for 10-15 seconds.
  4. Add in the almonds and coconut chips and process for another 10 seconds. It’s fine to still have some big chunks here.
  5. Spoon the mixture out into a large mixing bowl, and stir in the remainder of the ingredients. Mix well to fully combine.
  6. Pour the granola bar mixture into the baking pan and flatten with your hands.
  7. Place in the fridge to fully harden for at least 3 hours.
  8. Remove from the fridge and allow to sit for 5 minutes before removing from the baking pan. Place on a cutting board and carefully slice with a knife into 9 bars.
  9. Serve chilled and enjoy as a snack!


  1. These bars need to be chilled to stay solidified. Keep them in the fridge or use an ice pack when traveling with them.
  2. All nutritional information are estimations and will vary. Estimations do not include optional ingredients.
