These samoa granola bars are not only incredibly rich, chewy, delicious & packed full of caramel flavour, but they are also gluten, dairy, & refined sugar-free! They will not disappoint & are sure to please all! Great to prep at the start of the week for delicious & healthy snacks all week!



Caramel Sauce

Granola Bars

  • 1 + 1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 + 1/2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup collagen peptides (or you can try using protein powder but you will likely need less & it may alter the flavour/texture because I have only tried this recipe with collagen)

Chocolate Topping

  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate of choice  (I like these for dairy-free & these for sugar-free)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (or avocado oil or butter)


Caramel Sauce

  1. Bring coconut milk & sweetener to a boil on medium heat, then reduce to a simmer.
  2. Let simmer here for about 15-25 mins until it starts to thicken, & stirring regularly. Make sure to keep an eye on it & notice when it begins to thicken as well as ensure it is not burning or sticking to the bottom of the pot. Note* that different brands & stoves may take different amounts of time to thicken. I have had the best results with this brand.
  3. Once it has thickened remove from heat & mix in the vanilla & pink salt. Set aside & let cool.

Granola Bars

  1. Once the caramel sauce has cooled slightly, mix in the coconut, oats, & collagen peptides or protein powder.
  2. Spread evenly in a square baking pan & place in the fridge to harden up. I left mine overnight.
  3. Once hardened, melt the chocolate with the oil either in the microwave for 30 second intervals or over the stovetop on low heat, careful not to burn it.
  4. Cut the bars up into bars or squares & drizzle with the melted chocolate. My chocolate firmed up quickly but if it doesn’t you can pop them back into the fridge until it does for a few minutes. Enjoy!
