This recipe hails from Juli Bauer, the blogger and chef behind PaleOMG.  PaleOMG is one of my favorite go to Paleo sites for delish recipes & this one does not disappoint!!  It’s really easy to make, the hardest part is waiting for it to set in the fridge so you can eat it!!

No Bake Berry Bars

Crust

  • 12 pitted dates
  • 1 c cashews
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

Toppings

  • 6-8 oz blackberries (I used raspberries cause I hate all the seeds in blackberries!)
  • 6-8 oz blueberries
  • 1/4 c maple syrup
  • 1/4 coconut butter
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  1. Pulse all crust ingredients in a food processor.
  2. Press crust into bottom of a bread pan.
  3. Heat small sauce pan over medium heat.  Add fruit & maple syrup.
  4. Continuously stir so mixture doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  5. Once you have an almost runny jam, add your softened coconut butter along with cinnamon and salt.
  6. When all ingredients are incorporated, pour mixture on top of crust and spread flat.
  7. Put in the fridge to harden.  (1 hr +)
  8. Cut into squares & enjoy!!

These are perfect for a summer cookout & festive for a July 4th BBQ!!  Go pick up the ingredients and get “no baking”!
