Ingredients for Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark with Dark Chocolate

  • egg white
  • brown sugar
  • honey or maple syrup
  • coconut oil
  • oats (gluten-free if desired)
  • roasted and salted pepitas
  • ground flax seed
  • chia seeds
  • cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger (or pumpkin spice)
  • salt
  • chocolate chips (dairy-free if desired)

How to Make Granola Bark

Making granola bark is really simple! Start by preheating the oven to 325 degrees. Then, line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper. Next, in a medium sized mixing bowl whisk the egg white until frothy. Then, add in brown sugar, honey and coconut oil. Stir to combine well. Next, add in all remaining ingredients except for chocolate chips and the 1 tbsp of pepitas. Stir and make sure all oats are coated evenly.

Pour oat mixture into prepared 9×13 dish and spread into an even layer. Bake at 325 for about 30 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

Once bark is completely cool, melt chocolate chips slowly in the microwave in 15 second intervals. Stir chocolate well in between each burst in the microwave. Once chocolate is completely melted, pour over granola bark and spread. It does not need to cover the whole thing. Before chocolate sets, sprinkle the remaining pepitas on top of melted chocolate.

Put pan into the refrigerator to let chocolate set. Once chocolate is hard, remove from refrigerator and take bark out of the pan using the parchment paper to lift it out. Use a knife to cut into whatever size chunks or pieces you would like.

Store granola bark in an air tight container at room temperature for 1-2 weeks. Be sure to keep away from heat or direct sunlight to keep the chocolate from melting.
