This recipe is very flexible since you have many opportunities with ingredients. Play with them and let us know which flavor works best for you.

We used ground almonds for the crust, but you can use almond flour, coconut flour or any nut you would like. Walnuts or  pecans would work well, but they have a bolder flavor. You could also add some seeds to enhance the nutrition profile, such as chia seeds or flaxseeds. 

Research shows that eating nuts may help promote heart health. In fact, one study found that eating too few seeds and nuts may increase your risk of dying from diabetes or heart disease.

A study published in the American Medical Association Journal found that in 2012, over 300,000 American deaths were due to stroke, type 2 diabetes, or stroke. Additionally, about 45% of these deaths were due to eating too much or too little of 10 nutrients – one of which was nuts (*).

The researchers concluded that people who ate nuts every day lived longer and healthier lives than those who did not. Specifically, nuts have been shown to improve cholesterol levels, relax blood vessels, reduce blood clotting, increase a hormone called glucagon-like peptide 1 that improves insulin levels in people who are prediabetic, and contribute to satiety.   

We recommend sharing these bars with your friends, family, or co-workers. You’ll impress them with your baking skills, even though this recipe is super easy to make! 

Serve these immediately or freeze some dough for an even quicker treat next time!

How to

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a small baking pan with parchment paper or grease it with oil. We used a 10×10 pan since we wanted a thinner crust. If you want your crust to be thicker, use a 9×9 pan.

Add ground almonds, coconut flour, butter, cocoa powder, and sweetener in a food processor. Pulse for a couple of times until well mixed.
