Dreamy Blueberry Bliss Bars

Recreate your favorite coffeehouse bliss bars with a fresh makeover of antioxidant berries, coconut, and creamy cashews!

If you love the indulgent flavors of traditional bliss bars, you’re going to swoon over this refreshing new take. Topped with a blueberry compote and fresh strawberries, it’s a naturally sweet way to curb cravings during peak berry season.

How To Make Your Blueberry Compote Stand Out

Compotes are known for their sweet flavor and jelly-like texture. For this recipe, we swap out traditional cranberries for a blueberry compote made with maple syrup and fresh lemon juice. The maple syrup adds a rich taste, while the lemon juice gives it a nice fresh flavor.

Simmering these ingredients together helps to meld the flavors while creating a vibrant purple color. At this stage, make sure to mash the berries for three minutes before removing from the heat. As it cools, you’ll start to see it thicken into a thick jelly-like consistency that’s perfect for spreading over the creamy cashew layer.

Perfecting The Creamy Cashew Base (without dairy)

While the compote cools and thickens, you’ll want to purée the soaked cashews with added lemon juice and a little bit of water. This will create a silky base you can then mix with coconut oil, shredded coconut, almond extract, and maple syrup (for sweetness). The added nuts and seeds at the end offer a crunchy bite while boosting extra protein and healthy fats.

For a creamier texture, I like to let the cashews soak overnight in a bowl filled with enough water to cover the nuts. However, if you’re short on time, allow them to soak for at least four hours to get them nice and plump.

Helpful Suggestions:

  • Use blanched or raw almonds. Depending on your preference, either version is okay to use. I like opting for blanched since it creates a softer mouthfeel.
  • Switch up the sweetener in equal amounts. If you’re out of maple syrup, you can always sub in honey instead.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge. If you’re not enjoying immediately, store the brittle in an airtight container inside the fridge for up to five days.
