Who doesn’t love a good granola bar?  They are filling, satisfying and if you make them with the correct ingredients, they are quite healthy.  My goal when making these granola bars to pack them with as many superfood ingredients as possible for ultimate health but without losing the essential sweetness and flavor of traditional granola bars.  Goal=achieved!  You will need a dehydrator for this recipe but if you don’t have access to one, they also taste delicious before they even step foot in the dehydrator.  Give them a try and let me know what you think in the comment section!




2 cups gluten-free oats

1/2 cup coconut

15 dates

2 tbsp maca

2 tbsp mesquite

2 tbsp cinnamon

2 tbsp chia

1/4 cup water




Add all the ingredients into the food processor except the water. Once the ingredients are blended well (the dates are very small pieces and the oats almost look like flour) slowly add the water until the mixture forms into a dough-like consistency.  On a dehydrator sheet, take palm sized amounts of the dough and form into granola bar shapes.  You can also make them into round balls, using about half as much dough.  Dehydrate for 5-6 hours, flipping halfway through.
