[Recipe]: Choc-Cranberry Oat Bars

[Recipe]: Choc-Cranberry Oat Bars

This is a delicious treat with raw chocolate on the top of an oat-based bar with cacao nibs and dried cranberries. 


Bottom Layer

Raw Chocolate Layer

  • ½ Cup Coconut Oil
  • 5 Tbsp Cacao Powder
  • 5 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 Pinch of Salt


Choc-Cranberry Oat Bar Recipe



  1. Pre-heat oven to 170 degrees and line a rectangular baking tray with baking paper, covering all sides.
  2. Add all ingredients for the bottom layer to a bowl and mix until well combined.
  3. Pour mixture into the prepared tin and press down very firmly and evenly.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown on the edges.
  5. Let slice cool completely in the tin.
  6. Once the slice is cool, mix all chocolate layer ingredients in a bowl.
  7. Spread chocolate evenly over the top of the slice and allow it to harden in the fridge (for at least 1 hour).
  8. Remove the slice from the tin, cut into desired sized bars, and enjoy!  Store bars in the fridge or freezer so the raw chocolate doesn’t melt.


You can substitute the dried cranberries for any other dried fruit if you prefer.  This was so delicious and easy to make - I know I will definitely make it again!  If you make it, share a photo and tag us on Facebook or Instagram.
