Good morning beautiful berry bliss bars! I have been so absent on my blog lately and I’m really sorry, life has just been busy to be honest. Hopefully this dreamy strawberry bar recipe will make up for it :). I thought about using dried strawberries in this recipe but nah, fresh is ALWAYS best. Since these bars are so fresh, it’s best to serve them on the same day you make them. Easy Vegan Strawberry Bars are perfect for a day time party on a warm day or you could serve them as breakfast for the whole fam! The other day, I made a smoothie for breakfast and crumbled one of the bars on top ……I couldn’t even. It’s the simple things in life.
I can’t get over the color of these. It’s as if there are lots of beautiful little rubies hidden in there. Some coconut cream or peanut butter icing would really take these bars to the next level if you wanted to make them slightly more decadent for a party!
Below is the Recipe because my Recipe Card Plugin isn’t working 🙁
Description: A refreshing and delicious dessert that’s perfect for a warm and sunny day!
1 cup raw almonds
8 pitted dates
1/2 cup oats
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup peanut butter (super smooth and creamy kind)
2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
2 tbsp chia seeds ( I used organic white chia seeds)
1 cup fresh strawberries (cut into very small pieces)
Pulse the 1 cup raw almonds, 8 pitted dates,1/2 cup oats, and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract in a food processor until a choppy consistency forms.
Then, add the peanut butter and almond milk.
Process until the mixture starts to stick together (refer to my picture in food processor for what texture should look like).
Gently fold in the strawberries and chia seeds, you don’t want to break them up much because then the texture will be too watery (I used my hands to carefully mix).
Place mixture in a 6 x 8 inch pan and spread out evenly with hands.
Set in the freezer for 1.5 hours.
Take out and let bars thaw a bit before serving!
Notes: **Store in the fridge for up to one day in an airtight container–best to serve the same day!
