I’m at home for Thanksgiving so of course, the first morning I wake up, I bake something paleo and delicious for my family! Today was these decadent Almond Butter Berry Bars!
Recipe & Directions for Berry Mixture:
1.5 cups berries or fruit of choice
(I used acaí, blueberries, bananas, and persimmons)
.25 cups of chocolate chips (I used Lily's Sweets)
==> Cook over medium heat in a saucepan for 15 minutes
or until begins to thicken
Recipe & Directions for base layer:
1/2 cup coconut milk mixed with 1 tbsp lemon
(mix separately, set aside for 10 minutes, and add last)
2 eggs (or flax eggs if vegan)
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup almond butter (or any nut butter)
1/2 cup maple syrup (can lessen to 1/4 cup if don't like very sweet)
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
With 1/4 of base mixture:
- add 1/4-1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- coconut milk until mixture is slightly runny
To combine all:
Mix all ingredients & put 3/4 of base mixture into baking pan.
Add berry mixture on top.
Add 1/4 of new base mixture on top of berry mixture.
Optional to add chocolate chips.
350 degrees Fahrenheit for 35 minutes.
Let cool 15 minutes before cutting.
Optional to serve with vanilla ice cream on top!
As always #haveaperfectdayonpurpose 🙂
I hope these delicious bars bring joy and health to you and your loved ones!
