I’ve been enjoying my holiday baking this year, but it’s nice to whip up a sweet treat that not only doesn’t involve baking, but also doesn’t involve cleaning my food processor or blender. This recipe for vegan dark chocolate granola bark is so easy, not to mention festive, fun, and adaptable. 

Two pieces of vegan granola dark chocolate bark have been broken and placed on a small, round white plate.

The star of the recipe is the Sprouted Oat Quinoa Cacao Granola from One Degree Organics, a brand that I’ve come to love for its transparency and high quality cereals, oats, flours, and granolas. It’s the perfect breakfast treat: nutty and wholesome, but with a distinctive cacao flavor and a subtle hint of sweetness. 

Usually, I just enjoy the granola with plant milk and some berries or sliced banana. But I thought it would be fun to sprinkle it onto chocolate bark as a crispy and wholesome surprise, and I’m really glad that I did. 

On its own, the granola adds crunch and nutty flavor to the chocolate bark. You can also get festive and creative with toppings! I made one batch that was equal parts dark chocolate and vegan white chocolate (there are a few brands available online and in health food stores), swirled, along with a batch that included chopped walnuts and cranberries.

Making the bark couldn’t be simpler: just melt chocolate in your microwave (or in a double boiler), spread it on a parchment lined baking sheet, top it with about 3/4 cup of the granola, and let it cool, at room temperature or in the fridge for speed. Once it’s hard, break it into pieces and enjoy it.

Or, you can share this as a gift with grateful friends and coworkers. It’s a lot less work than many other edible gifts, but it’s pretty and crowd-pleasing. And, thanks to the fiber, antioxidant-rich cacao, and protein in the granola, it’s got some nourishing benefits, too.

Here’s the very festive, oh-so-simple recipe.

Author – Gena Hamshaw
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Chilling time 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
Yields: 8 servings


  • 12 ounces vegan dark chocolate chips, morsels, or chopped chocolate bar (substitute a half and half mix of 6 ounces vegan white chocolate and 6 ounces vegan dark chocolate)
  • 1 cup vegan granola of choice (90g)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (60g)

  • Pour the chocolate onto your prepared baking sheet and use a spatula to spread it around evenly. If you’re using white and dark chocolate, add the dark chocolate first, spread it around, and then pour the white chocolate on top. Use a spatula to incorporate the white chocolate into the dark in a swirling, marbled pattern.
  • Sprinkle the granola evenly over the chocolate, along with walnuts and cranberries if desired. Allow the bark to cool completely (several hours at room temperature or 1 – 2 hours in the fridge). Break into pieces and enjoy! Store vegan dark chocolate granola bark in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Happy snacking!
