Chocolate Pistachio Healthy Vegan Snack Bars (GF): soft & chewy gluten free vegan snack bars packed with chocolate & pistachios! The perfect nutty snack—easy to make, simple ingredients for the BEST vegan snack bars! Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free.
When I was a little kid, I thought pistachios were the weirdest thing. Like, why are they so green? What’s up with the whole having to peel off the shell business? Why are they not peanuts or… even those weird things I just ate for the first time ever: almonds?!
And, again, why are they so green??
My, how things change as we age. Hehe. I still think they’re crazy green, but I can appreciate the beauty of its vibrant green hue. Like, nothing artificial and you’re poppin’ that much?! NICE. And…who’s your stylist? 😉
How do you feel about pistachios? Fan or no? (Also, have you tried them in already-shelled form? Game changer!!)
Either way, I hope you enjoy the seasonal treat I have in store for you today… Hint #1: pistachios are involved. Hint #2: gluten free vegan snack bars are also involved. Delicious Hint 3: there’s chocolate. *Mic drop.*

- 8-inch Square Baking Pan: I can’t even begin to count how many times I’ve used these pans. They are affordable, dependable and give great results. My go-to pan for making snack bars.
- My Favorite Knife: I love using this for super clean cuts on everything from vegan snack bars to glazed vegan gluten free pumpkin bread. It’s super sharp, gives wonderfully clean cuts, and so resilient–it just keeps on a-slicin’ no matter what you throw at it! Like a Fruit Ninja.
