Equipment

  • Food processor
  • stand mixer
  • loaf pan

Ingredients

  • 1 1/6 cups of rolled oats divided, providing a wholesome and hearty base for the granola bars.
  • 1/4 cup of light corn syrup or brown rice syrup adding a touch of sweetness and acting as a natural binder.
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt enhancing the overall taste and balancing the sweetness.
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil melted, infusing the bars with a rich and fragrant coconut flavor.
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar contributing a subtle caramel-like sweetness to the bars.
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes adding a tropical and slightly nutty flavor to the bars.
  • 2 tablespoons of tapioca flour helping to bind the ingredients together and providing a smooth texture.
  • 1/4 cup of mini-size chocolate chips creating pockets of gooey and indulgent chocolate throughout the bars.

Instructions

  • In a food processor, pulse 1 cup of the rolled oats into a powder. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine remaining 1 1/3 cups of oats, coconut flakes, tapioca flour, salt and brown sugar. Mix on low speed until everything is evenly combined.
  • Add in corn syrup or brown rice syrup and melted coconut oil to the mixture and mix again until everything is evenly incorporated.
  • Scoop out half of the cookie batter into an 8×4-inch loaf pan lined with parchment paper (or foil). Press down firmly to create an even layer. Sprinkle chocolate chips over top.
  • Scoop the remaining cookie batter over top and spread evenly. Sprinkle with remaining rolled oat powder and press down gently to flatten.
  • Place in the freezer for 2 hours until set. Cut into 9 bars or squares, store in an airtight container, and enjoy!

Notes

  • Use mini-size chocolate chips or chopped pieces of your favourite bar.
  • For extra crunch, add 1-2 tablespoons of chopped nuts.
  • To keep the bars from sticking together, spray the parchment paper with oil before adding the mixture.
  • For optimal results, chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving.
