These vegan and gluten-free blackberry coconut bars are perfect for a healthy vegan dessert or even a quick vegan and gluten-free snack.

The blackberry coconut bars are satisfying on the palate with their berry and creamy coconut flavour but also nutritious.

The natural fruit in the bars is delightful and the flavour changes depending on the fruit you have so you can enjoy these all year round.  

You can substitute for other soft fruit like raspberries and make different combinations. The combination of berries and creamy coconut makes for a heavenly vegan sweet treat no matter which berries you choose to use! 

As well as being delicious, these vegan and gluten-free bars contain plenty of vitamins, minerals and healthy oils. Both hazelnuts and almonds are packed with nutrients, including vitamins and minerals and healthy fats.

In particular, hazelnuts are high in vitamin E and have a good amount of omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids. Almonds are a good source of vitamin E and also calcium.

Once they are chilled, grate anti-inflammatory cacao nibs over them for extra texture.

They are best kept refrigerated in an airtight container.
