Chocolate Raspberry Almond Butter Bars on parchment paper.

Chocolate Raspberry Almond Butter Bars


Description

Chocolate Raspberry Almond Butter Bars! So beautiful, naturally sweetened, and fully loaded. Naturally sweetened, so these are completely guilt-free!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 tablespoons salted butter, divided
  • 8 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons honey, divided
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • a couple pinches of salt (to taste)
  • 1 heaping cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup whole or chopped pecans
  • cacao nibs, flaked coconut, sea salt, or anything else you might like as a topping

Instructions

  1. Line a pie plate with parchment paper or foil. Arrange the raspberries and the pecans in a single layer.
  2. Melt 4 tablespoons butter and 4 tablespoons coconut oil together until smooth. Whisk in the cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons honey, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Taste, adjust, and pour the mixture over the berries in the pie plate.
  3. Melt the remaining 4 tablespoons butter and 4 tablespoons coconut oil together until smooth. Add the almond butter, 2 tablespoons honey, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and a pinch of salt – stir until melted. Taste, adjust, and pour the mixture over the chocolate mixture in the pan.
  4. Freeze for at least 30 minutes – right around the 30 minute mark they will be sturdy and solid but still awesomely semi-soft and bite-able. Cut into wedges to serve. (I stored my leftovers in the freezer and then just let them thaw a bit before eating each time.)

Notes

You could mix the two melted mixtures together but I sort of liked having them in two layers. You can necessarily tell (I tried to swirl but it didn’t really work) but I just liked the idea of them being layered better than mixing them all together.

The texture of these is a cross between a fudgsicle and chocolate bark. It will be more fudgy and gooey (and better, IMO) if you let it thaw out a little bit before eating.
