Cranberry Orange Bars (Grain Free, Dairy Free & Paleo)

 Cranberry Orange Bars (Grain Free, Dairy Free & Paleo)

 Whether you are looking for a morning breakfast bar for on-the-go or a tasty dessert, I’ve got you covered!

I’m a big fan of coconut flour and I realize that a lot of my grain-free recipes lately utilize both almond and coconut flour. Well I don’t want those of you with an almond allergy to miss out on some scrumptious grain-free treats! These bars are perfectly moist, filling and nutritious. They are great for breakfast,  a snack or packed into a lunch box. These bars are hearty and abundant in protein to keep you satisfied and fulfill any sugar or grain cravings you may have.

The combination of orange and cranberry will make your entire kitchen smell wonderful. Double win right?! Hope you get a chance to try these bars and put them in a lunch box or two sometime soon!

  1. These are great, Laura! As you know, I cannot tolerate almond flour, so always looking for these alternative recipes. Can’t wait make these! I can see these for breakfast for sure…or in the late afternoon when I get the 3:00 munchies! :-)

    Have a great week.

  2. Laura – This looks so yummy! I’m going to make this for my boys for a cross country trip we have coming up. I’ve been looking for snacks that don’t involve chocolate since it is so hot.

  3. This looks so yummy !!! I recently went GF and seeing the benefits on myself am hooked. Making this ! Nice way to use that orange oil :) ! Looks lovely !

  4. I want to make these just because they will make my house smell wonderful! They look yummy!

  5. These look delicious! And sound tasty for fall. I love cranberry anything – it’s one of my favorite foods. I’m tempted to try them now and make a big batch to share with my co-workers too.

  6. Two of my favorite flavors. I’m looking forward to cooler weather and baking regularly again. I’ve been on the lookout for gf recipes as an elimination diet indicated wheat causes me trouble. Haven’t used coconut flour yet, but have had good results with rice, chickpea and almond flours in various applications. I’m pinning this and will follow you, too. :)

  7. I like the flours you’ve used here, your cranberry orange bars would be a great snack in the afternoon with tea. Thanks for sharing on Hearth & Soul Hop. :)
