These simple paleo bars are easy to make, and great to eat at work!


Ingredients (serves 1 | makes 8-10 bars )

  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


  1. Blend the dates with the coconut oil until smooth.
  2. Add the almonds and coconut and mix.
  3. Spread onto baking paper on a tray and leave in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Notes... You can also add some peppermint or mint essence for a minty snack!

  • I like how easyt this recipe is to make so awesome!


  • Wouldn’t feel like I’ve wrecked my diet eating this as a snack… Going to need to give this a try. I think even my toddlers would love this.


  • A great snack sized sweet treat.


  • yum! these sound great and you dip into chocolate for an extra sweet treat. Definately great for lunch boxes. Thanks for posting this


  • These would be great for lunches


  • A great one that all the family can eat, very rare these days.


  • Another gluten-free option I can make my friend. I’m mint mad, so I would definitely add that to the mix.


  • i like the idea of using dates in this! it will give it a nice flavour plus it is something different to try


  • love these easy, healthy recipes! Thanks.


  • Great simple and delicious recipe. Thanks for sharing.


  • What a fantastic healthy easy recipe. Thank you


  • Wow thank you everyone for the kind comments! I like to add cacao instead of cocoa because it’s full of antioxidants that are usually taken out during processing so it’s better for you and still tastes nice :) The coconut oil I use I don’t believe is refined, if you can get organic that’s always good! Another thing I like to add occasionally is chia seeds for some more crunch! Thank you!!

    • You are very welcome – thank you for the recipe! :)


  • Oh yum, the whole family will love these.


  • A great combination of flavours. Looks like an easy, heakthy and delicious way to beat those afternoon hunger cravings!

    • My favourite lunchbox treat for afternoon cravings.


  • We love making these with peppermint essence and some cocoa powder.
