No Bake Sticky Berry Bars

This is one of my favorite recipes to make & especially to eat. Everyone that has tried it has loved it. This is a non-dairy recipe.

This recipe comes from Juli at http://paleomg.com. If you haven’t seen her blog, go read it! She has great Paleo recipes along with great stories (most NSFW).

Prep Time: 20 min

Ingredients for the crust:

  1. 12 medjool dates, pits removed
  2. 1 cup cashews (I usually use macadamia nuts since they are less expensive to get here in Hawaii than cashews)
  3. 2 tablespoons almond butter (again, I usually use homemade macadamia nut butter)
  4. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  5. pinch of salt

Ingredients for the topping:

  1. 6-8 oz blackberries
  2. 6-8 oz blueberries
  3. 1/4 cup maple syrup
  4. 1/4 cup coconut cream concentrate
  5. sprinkle of cinnamon
  6. pinch of salt

Instructions:

  1. First, make the crust. Add all ingredients for the crust to a food processor.
  2. Put crust ingredients in a bread pan, press down until evenly distributed (or you can use a larger pan, just know your crust will be thinner)
  3. Heat a small saucepan on medium heat. Add your blackberries and blueberries along with the maple syrup
  4. Or you can wait to add the syrup after the berries begin to break down & explode (I’ve done it both ways & it turns out fine either way). Be sure to continuously stir so the mixture doesn’t stick to the bottom and burn
  5. Once you have almost a runny jam, add your melted/softened coconut cream concentrate along with cinnamon and salt
  6. When all ingredients are incorporated, pour mixture on top of crust and press flat. Put in the fridge to harden for 30-45 minutes.
  7. Cut into squares & serve

Juli’s note at the bottom is that she could have eaten the whole batch so she doesn’t know how many people it is supposed to serve. 🙂

I have made these with just blueberries only when our local Costco doesn’t have blackberries and it’s still good but it’s best with both berries combined.
