CHOCOLATE-COVERED BLACKBERRY COCONUT BARS (vg)

October 4, 2019

 

 

 

These chocolate covered Blackberry Coconut Bars are the berry-sweetened and beautifully PURPLE version of a bounty bar, but vegan and only 5 ingredients!

 

You can make these with any type of berries, and explore the entire spectrum of pink to purple coconut bars. And yes, frozen berries work too. If you don’t have a high speed blender, either strain the berry puree after blending (annoying, I know) or stick to blueberries or strawberries to avoid those tiny seeds.

 

The delicious contrast of snappy dark chocolate covering the flakey tart berry bars that just gets better the longer they chill makes these no-added-sugar and no-bake bars absolutely delicious!  Happy berry bounty bar no-baking to you!
