Healthy No Bake Chocolate Coconut Bars


These healthy no bake chocolate coconut bars are loaded with wholesome ingredients like rolled oats, peanut butter and coconut. They’re sweet, delicious and perfect for snacking! Vegan and gluten-free.

Remember when I mentioned I had another no bake recipe to share when I posted my healthy no bake cookies post? Well . . . here it is!

There’s coconut involved!

This recipe is similar to the healthy no bake cookies — just with unsweetened coconut added for a hint of coconut flavor. I figure this is a good version for the folks that love coconut and chocolate.

They’re also great if you’re in a time crunch because you don’t have to worry about forming them into a cookie shape. Just press the batter into a pan, sprinkle with coconut, let it sit in the fridge a little while and they’re done. Easy peasy.

If you can’t tell, I had way too much fun taking photos of these bars… and this isn’t even half of the photos I took. I had to be selective.

The red and white kitchen twine just makes baked goods look so festive and cute. I couldn’t help but take a billion photos. Okay, more like 50.

I love the combo of peanut butter, chocolate and coconut so much and it works well in these bars. Oh gosh, writing that somehow made me think of my healthier magic cookie bars — now I want one of those. Anyhow, these bars are delicious, easy to whip up and quite amazing, in my opinion. I hope you love them as well!

Cook Time 5 minutes

  • Grease an 8×8 square glass baking dish with coconut oil or line with parchment paper.
  • Combine oats and shredded coconut in a mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Combine peanut butter, almond milk, maple syrup and cocoa powder in a saucepan. Cook on medium heat while stirring the mixture until well combined. Heat until mixture is fragrant and thickened, about 5 minutes or so.
  • Turn off stove top and stir vanilla and sea salt.
  • Pour mixture over the oats and shredded coconut and mix until well combined. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish and press down until the batter is evenly distributed across the dish. Sprinkle with extra coconut, press down once more so the coconut sticks.
  • Place dish into the fridge and let sit until the bars are set up (about 2 hours). Remove from fridge, cut into bars and enjoy. Store any leftovers in the fridge.

      How can a no-bake granola be made without any nut/seed butter?

        I am not sure what a good replacement would be for the nut butter/seed butter as I’ve never tried a replacement for this recipe. I do have these no-bake granola bars that don’t require nut or seed butter that you might want to try instead.

      These are so, so good! Definitely a keeper.I used honey instead of maple syrup and chunky peanut butter instead of creamy and they were awsome!

        Hi Jackie. Where did you see this recipe? I do have a recipe for almond joy protein balls which are similar to what you’re looking for I think!

      Just made these and they are delicious! They kind of taste like a homemade clif bar and I’m super excited to have a new snack for work! Do you know if these would freeze well?

        Amazing! Thank you so much for letting me know how they turned out. In terms of freezing, I haven’t tried freezing these but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work! Let me know if you try it. Also, quick favor! Would you mind leaving another comment with a star rating of the recipe? The ratings are super helpful for SEO! 🙂
