A moist, chewy granola bar that is brimming with protein, pepitas, bananas and of course chocolate. This feels more like a treat than a filling snack. If you've been looking for an easy nut-free granola bar or an easy oat-free granola bar that is also gluten-free and vegan, you've found the right place! Gluten, dairy, egg, soy, peanut & tree nut free; top-8-free.
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a stand mixer mix the bananas, SunButter, cocoa powder, vanilla and maple syrup until everything is combined and bananas are thoroughly incorporated.
  3. Slowly add in the buckwheat groats, pepitas and chocolate until just combined, so you don't break them up.
  4. Pour into a greased 8x8 square pan
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the granola bars firm up. (However, they will be slightly sticky still, just due to their chewy nature--look for the corners to be done).
  6. Let cool completely before cutting into bars.
  7. Makes 6-9 bars, depending on the size you cut them.
  8. Store leftover bars in an air tight container for up to a week.
