Raw Vegan Blueberry Apricot Granola Bar Recipe

It’s that traveling time of year. School is out, vacations are starting. It’s also when I get busy in the kitchen making raw, vegan snacks that travel well. Because I know if I am in the airport, or in the car and I am hungry I might eat something I normally wouldn’t touch if I don’t have my tasty snacks.

But when I have my little treats, I am never tempted to snack on the things that are usually on my “I really don’t want to eat that because I know I will feel like crap if I do” list. And if you find yourself in an airport, or at a truck stop, the healthy options can be tough to find while the unhealthy ones are a dime a dozen.


Vegan Blueberry Apricot Granola Bars


For this granola bar recipe, I wanted a bar that I knew would keep hunger at bay and give me some great nutrients. I was not shy as I threw together the ingredients. There are a lot of nutritional powerhouses in these! The stars of these bars are dried blueberries and dried apricots. Cacao nibs, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds and a few other tasty ingredients rounded out the batch. Make them with gluten free oats and you don’t have to worry about gluten! I have also included instructions for baking if you don’t have a dehydrator and don’t care if they are raw or not.

    Just made them. So delicious. Trying to get off sugar and sweets and think these bars might help me transition to a healthier alternative

    Could I make these without the coconut butter?

      Hi, Ellen, The coconut butter helps hold them together. You could try an almond butter but as it doesn’t harden like coconut butter, they might be quite squishy. 🙂

    I love granola bars and often make my own but I never have tried a de-hydration method before. Thanks for the idea!

    This recipe looks amazing- is there something I can use in place of flax?

      Hi, Justin, No, I don’t soak the chia seeds. They do not need soaking. They are actually easy to digest. Cheers!
