5 from 1 review

One of the most popular recipes in our house and amongst our friends and family, these No-Bake Paleo Chocolate Chip Coconut Bars are so easy to make! Flavored with vanilla, chocolate, and shredded coconut, these dessert bars are sweet and satisfying! {Paleo-friendly and vegan-friendly}


  • 1 cup almond butter (I used Costco’s Kirkland brand)
  • 1 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup (paleo) or agave nectar (vegan)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life brand)


  1. In a mixing bowl, stir together the almond butter and coconut oil. Then add the maple syrup, vanilla, and sea salt. Next, pour in the shredded coconut and stir until combined. After that, stir in the chocolate pieces. Quickly transfer the mixture to an 8×8 or a 9×9 pan and chill for 30 minutes to two hours, or until the bars have set.
  2. Refrigerate for up to 7 days.


    • Stir the batter with a fork if the nut butter is thick and the melted coconut oil isn’t blending in.
    • If the chocolate chips settle at the bottom of the dish, then give the mixture a quick stir before pouring it into the pan OR top with extra chocolate chips prior to putting the dessert in the refrigerator to chill.
    • An 8×8 or a 9×9 pan will work. The 8×8 dish will product thicker bars. The 9×9 dish will produce thinner bars that may also be prone to breaking. Use a pie or cake serve to serve the bars.
    • Optional: Grease the baking dish with coconut oil and/or line with parchment paper.
