I have received several requests for some more healthy treat options on the blog. Your wish is my command, friends! My friend Chelsea really got me into making and experimenting with vegan bars, so I have been creating my own couple of recipes over the past few months. These yummy very berry happy-go-lucky layered vegan bars are simply bursting with berry flavour. They literally are a mouthful! They are also a perfect treat for someone that is vegan or just likes healthy treats. With the added nuts in this bar, they are sure to fill you up and give you energy for whatever your afternoon has in store.
If you can’t find raspberries and blackberries fresh, I have tried it with strawberries and blueberries, and it works out just as deliciously! Try with your own variations of fruits and nuts then let me know how they turn out!
These Vegan bars are so easy to make and so tasty, they make for the perfect snack or treat.
