Convenience foods are a must-have as you transition over to an anti-inflammatory diet. Wellness Coaching clients I speak with are are always desperate for snack foods they can carry with them on-the-go, or simply eat for a quick no-cook breakfast. These bars will remind you of your favorite tropical granola but without the grains and nuts as leaky gut triggers. Plus they take only five minutes to make! The coconut fat will keep you full and the fruit adds a touch of natural sugar plus minerals to keep you energized.

Tropical Grain-Free Nut-Free “Granola” Bars

Tropical Grain-Free Nut-Free “Granola” Bars


8 bars


  • 1/2 cup Green Banana Flour (we like Let’s Do... Organic brand)
  • 1 cup dried organic unsulphured unsweetened cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sliced Tigernuts (we like Organic Gemini brand)
  • 1/3 cup coconut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup fresh mango, ripe & finely diced
  • 1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 Pinch salt


  1. Prepare a square medium-sized glass baking dish by lining the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.
  2. Combine coconut oil, coconut butter, mango, salt, and vanilla in a medium pot over medium-low heat and stir until mango has melted down and all ingredients are well combined.
  3. Once wet ingredients have melted, remove pan from heat. Add dry ingredients to pot and mix well until a dough forms.
  4. Press the mixture into the glass baking dish.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours then slice into equal-sized bars. Store in the fridge as these will get soft when not refrigerated.
