These chocolate covered Blackberry Coconut Bars are the berry-sweetened and beautifully PURPLE version of a bounty bar, but vegan and only 5 ingredients!
If you read my last post on Instagram, I got a little real and shared why I’m not quite in my optimal work flow right now. It happens. It’s happened before. And it will happen again. The actual creating is tricky with only 1.5 functioning hands, but it’s all the other stuff that feels overwhelming – writing, editing, sharing, all the little details.
So my plan of attack: SIMPLIFY. At least where I can. Because really we’re both just here to eat purple bounty bars, right? I mean I know they’re called Blackberry Coconut Bars and all, but deep down they are just homemade vegan bounty bars with a berry dyed heart.
So let’s skip the fluff and get right to what makes these so good:
- Chocolate + coconut. Duh.
- They’re um PURPLE…in case you hadn’t noticed.
- Only 5 ingredients.
- No added sugar.
- The delicious contrast of snappy dark chocolate covering the flakey tart berry bars that just gets better the longer they chill.
You can make these with any type of berries, and explore the entire spectrum of pink to purple coconut bars. And yes, frozen berries work too. If you don’t have a high speed blender like a Vitamix, either strain the berry puree after blending (annoying, I know) or stick to blueberries or strawberries to avoid those tiny seeds.
Happy berry bounty bar no-baking to you!
