Dark Chocolate Paleo Snack Bars (GF): this chocolate-drizzled vegan snack bars recipe is chewy & satisfying! The best gluten free snack bars—grain-free, refined sugar-free & healthy!
What’s your favorite healthy snack? Allow me to
list a few to whet your appetite name a few: granola bars, energy balls, chunky paleo granola, keto fat bombs, banana breakfast cookies? Might you, perhaps, add paleo snack bars to that list?
As I mentioned last month, I’d never even heard of snack bars, let alone paleo snack bars, until I stumbled upon them on a fellow friend’s site. I was intrigued by the notion of a snack that wasn’t quite a granola bar, not quite a breakfast bar, and not quite… er, other stuff in between all of that.
So I set about creating the Easy Paleo Snack Bars from last month. Those paleo snack bars were packed to the brim with healthy seeds, nutrient-rich nuts, and tons of other good stuff (aka coconut flakes and almond butter). But the one thing missing from all of that?
Chocolate. Make that dark chocolate.
You totally just happy sighed right now, didn’t you? 😉 Yep, so did I.
Dark Chocolate Paleo Snack Bars Recipe: Vegan & Gluten Free
As much as my family absolutely loved that easy paleo snack bars recipe, they promptly dropped them as soon as I brought over a tray of fresh-baked, newly drizzled Dark Chocolate Paleo Snack Bars. And before you ask, yes, I totally sprinkled a bit of coarse sea salt on half (in kind consideration of the side of my family that likes to keep things not salty). And everyone loved them.
These decadently dark chocolate drizzled paleo approved snack bars are the perfect mix of nutty & chocolatey, with a delicious seed-packed crunch, and chewy centers with a crisp edge. They’re the perfect paleo diet snack bars recipe. Yeah!!
