Easy and delicious mint chocolate granola bars that are the perfect healthy snack.


  • 1/3 cup flax seeds
  • 2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup nut butter peanut, almond, sunflower seed
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint oil extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or chunks

Chocolate Glaze

  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil


  • Line a 8x8 pan with parchment paper or tinfoil.
  • In a food processor or blender, place the flax seeds and pulse for 10-15 seconds until they are broken down. Add in the oats and pulse for another 5-10 seconds to break down the oats. You want them about half their original size. Set mixture aside.
  • In a large stock pot, over medium-low heat melt the nut butter, honey and coconut oil, stirring frequently. Remove from heat, and add in the peppermint extract, stirring to combine. Let cool for 10-15 minutes or until just barley warm to touch.
  • Add in the oat mixture and stir until well combined. Add in the chocolate chunks and stir until combined.
  • Transfer the oat mixture to the pan and press down until you have an even layer of oats. I find placing my hand inside a plastic sandwich bag then pressing down the mixture helps it from sticking to the oat mixture. Press down hard and evenly until the mixture will not press down any more.
  • In a small microwave safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil and heat in 30 second intervals until the chocolate is melted, stirring after each interval.
  • Drizzle the chocolate on top of the granola bars or if you want a thick layer, simply pour the chocolate over the entire pan and spread into a thin layer with a knife or spatula.
  • Place the pan in the fridge and let set for 2 hours. Cut into 18 bars or small bites and serve.
