Vegan Salted Caramel Granola Bars

Servings: 12 Granola Bars


  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 0 mins
  • Total Time: 10 mins




  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened almond butter
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil solid, not melted
  • 2 Medjool dates, pitted and quartered
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups oats
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped raw almonds
  • ¼ cup add ins: chia seeds, hulled hemp seeds, mini chocolate chips, sunflower seeds, coconut flakes, or anything you'd like
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  1. Combine the maple syrup, almond butter, coconut oil, dates, and vanilla extract in the small bowl of a food processor. Process until completely smooth; the mixture should resemble caramel when it's finished.
  2. Stir together the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour the caramel mixture over the top and use a wooden spoon (or your hands) to combine.
  3. Grease a small square baking dish with coconut oil. Press the granola bar mixture into the dish and cover it with plastic wrap or foil. Refrigerate the granola bars for about 2 hours, or until set. Once set, cut the bars into 12 equal pieces. Store the bars in the refrigerator for up to a week or freeze them for up to 2 months.

You can use a combination of different ingredients for the ¼ cup of add-ins. I've made these with 2 tablespoons of hemp seeds and 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, and also with ¼ cup of sunflower seeds. As long as the amount totals ¼ cup, you're good.

Because these bars are held together with caramel, they need to be stored in the refrigerator or freezer so they don't fall apart.
