Almond butter Chocolate crunch bars
I have made these almond butter chocolate crunch bars while still on vacation in Spain. Since I always crave sweets, no matter where I am, I figured I make something easy and still healthy. To the rescue? These easy bars which were still vegan and gluten-free.
I am still in South Spain visiting family and friends. At the same time, since we are staying in this area for 6 weeks, we are visiting a lot of amazing spots that I want to share with you in several blog pots when I get back. Some of the towns we are visiting are out of this world. Surreal to say the least. You are not not going to believe your eyes, so stay tuned!
These almond butter chocolate crunch bars are super easy to make. I actually did a video for you so that you can see how easy they really are. While I used almond butter, you can still use any other butter you wish. For those with a nut allergy using sunflower butter will work perfectly.
These Almond butter Chocolate crunch bars are also gluten-free and vegan. A win win in my book, so for those with these dietary restrictions these bars are perfect.
As you can see by the pictures, my brown rice puff cereal was a little bit different than the ones you will find in the USA. These are chunkier and bigger but the principle is the same. I actually liked them a lot. Now, if you are in Spain, you will find them in any supermarket. I was up North Spain when I made these bars and I bought them at LUPA supermarket.
I think you can also add any other mix-ins you like. If you like to increase the protein content chocolate protein powder will work. If you like to add chia seeds or flaxseed meal you can also do that. These ingredients will make the almond butter chocolate crunch bars even more nutrient dense.
Anyhow, I hope you get to make these easy almond bars. I am going to try to make a few more easy recipes while here in Spain. Will see how it works because at the moment my kitchen equipment and space is very limited!

I can’t wait to see the pictures from these surreal places you just wrote!! I am glad to hear you are enjoying your vacation. Spain is really a beautiful country and I hope one day I can visit it. These bars looks so delicious and very professional too ;-)
This recipe looks great, but is 1 cup cereal correct? It seems a little low to me based on the measurements of all the other ingredients. Thanks!
Yes, that is how much I used. You can use more if you like!!
Hello sweet and simple crunchy chocolate bars. I can’t wait to get you in my belly!
This recipe looks delicious!!
Do you mix the coconut oil with all the other ingredients too? It isn’t clear in the video or I think I missed it!!! I’m going to buy all the ingredients and try to do it tomorrow!! Let’s see how it turns out!! hahahaha..
PS: I’m Colombian but I live in Madrid and found out about your blog a few days ago while watching Madrilenos por el Mundo!! :D :D
Thanx !!! xoxo
Yes I placed the melted coconut oil in the mixing bowl and added all the ingredients there. Very easy :-) I hope you like it!! Thanks for stopping by.
Can we use white rice cereal or krispies?
Yes you can :-)
This recipe sounds really delicious. Chocolate bars are my favourite and can’t wait to try this recipe. Is it good to mix the coconut oil with other ingredients? I’m confused with the mixing of oil. I’m going to try this soon, as I have the dark chocolate bars in the home, which I brought from Giddy Yoyo( http://www.giddyyoyo.com/ ) in Canada. So I want to try this and get to know the taste. It would be really appreciated if you share more chocolate recipes like this.
Yes you can mix the melted coconut with the other ingredients :-)
Those look so delicious, and I just love almond butter, but I’m wondering if I can switch to cashew butter? They would taste even richer! Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe!
For sure :-)
About how long are these good for kept in the fridge?
For at least 1 week!
