- 1/2 cup (125ml) of tapioca flour
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic coconut flour
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic raw cocoa powder
- 2 tsp. (10ml) of baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cup (375ml) of organic Adzuki beans (I used frozen ones that I thawed) + 6tbsp of water
- 2 tbsp. (30 ml) of organic coconut oil
- 1 ripe organic banana
- 2 cup (500ml) of almond milk

- 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of chia seeds
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic walnuts
- 1 cup (250ml) of organic chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 375º
- In a small food processor, put your Adzuki beans, the water and pulse until you get a puree. If you need more water, you can add a bit, but it shouldn’t be too liquid.
- In a medium bowl, combine the buckwheat flour, the tapioca flour, the coconut flour, the baking powder and the salt.
- In another bowl, mix the Adzuki bean puree, the coconut oil, the banana, the almond milk, the apple cider vinegar, the vanilla and the agave syrup together.
- Gradually add in the flour mix, the sunflower seeds, the chia seeds, the walnuts and the chocolate chips. Combine until you get a smooth texture.
- Cover a 9″x13″ oven dish with parchment paper and spread the dough evenly. Cook for 50 minutes.
- When you remove it from the oven, let it cool for 5 minute before transferring on a wire rack.
What do our readers say about this recipe?
“I love this recipe, it’s my favorite one. I use a cup of all veggies and fruits with choco chips instead of the walnuts and i put it in a 9″x5″ pan (i like thicker bars). I cook them for an hour.”
“I use this as a replacement for breakfast or as a snack! Everyone in my family likes them too!”
“I make these every sunday night to take to work with me during the week. And everyone at work loves having a healthy little treat.”
“I used a small bag of dried dates instead of dates soaked overnight or dates soaked in boiling water for 10minutes.”
“They turned out fantastic! I had to sub out some of the milks for coconut water but it still turned out great. I spread this on my toast at breakfast and it made it so much yummier!”
“This is really delicious! The first time (and several times since) I made these I used buckwheat flour, but didn’t like the taste as much as when I used brown rice flour. Overall this is definitely one of my favorite bars on here.”
“I loved making this recipe. It was fun to make and no one can say no to chocolate (well unless you are allergic). Unfortunately gluten free baked goods don’t last long in my house, so usually they are gone within minutes.”
“I made this recipe twice… the first time was supper yummy but a bit crumbly for a bar. The second time I added 1/2 cup more oats and cooked it for 55 minutes. It came out perfect!”
