Chocolate Coconut Energy Bars

Homemade Grain Free Chocolate Coconut Energy Bar Recipe

I love the convenience of energy bars, but I don’t love the ingredients in most of them! I’ve made date and nut based energy bars and chia seed energy bars ( a favorite at our house), but I’ve been experimenting with a recipe that would be largely coconut based, nut free and a healthy alternative to sugary snacks when my kids are around other kids.

The kids also requested that I include chocolate in these energy bars, and this recipe was born.

They’ve been a big hit! The only downside is that they have to be refrigerated to keep their firmness, but taste-wise, they are wonderful! Do you ever make snack bars at home? What’s your favorite recipe?

Chocolate Coconut Energy Bars Recipe




Yield 4 -6

An easy, healthy, grain-free energy bar made with chocolate, coconut and honey for an energy-boosting snack.



  1. Melt the cocoa butter in a small pan over low heat.
  2. Add coconut oil and melt.
  3. Add honey and stir well.
  4. Stir in cocoa powder.
  5. Stir in chia seeds (optional) and/or Shredded Coconut.
  6. Add vanilla, stevia tincture or other flavors to taste (optional).
  7. Pour into a parchment paper lined 9x13 baking dish and refrigerate for 1 hour or until hardened (can also freeze).

I don't recommend eating these in the evening! They tend to give a little too much energy!
