RAW Chocolate & Raspberry Bars Mariel Lewis April 24, 2013 American, Dairy Free, Desserts, Gluten Free, Paleo, Paleo-Vegan, RAW Vegan, Soy Free, Summer, Treats, Vegan, Vegetarian 11 Comments I'll be sharing a wonderfully rich chocolate treat today. Not only are these RAW Chocolate & Raspberry Bars sweet and chewy...they also keep fresh a long time (you'll keep them in your freezer the entire time, only taking them out a minute or two before having a bar). If you're not too crazy about raspberries, you can easily substitute them with your favorite type of berry. You could even go crazy and sub it with something like shredded coconut! It's completely up to you. Raspberries worked great for me. These are one of my all-time favorite desserts. You'll see why on your first taste.

However, I could nibble on the edges. Jennifer May 2, 2013 Had everything on hand except raspberries, so I used strawberries. Special treat for the kiddos and hubs after dinner. I did taste test (of course) and they are so good. I might play with the berry type and ratio to see if the banana can be hidden more, though I do love a banana. Maybe the raspberries add stronger flavor. Thanks for this. I’ve enjoyed looking through your recipes. Mariel Lewis May 8, 2013 Hi Jennifer! Thanks for the comment.

I am actually from Ecuador, so I’d love to give some of my homeland’s products a try. Want to send me a sample?! 😉 Anya June 9, 2013 I absolutely love this! I make it every week to stop me eating copious amounts of chocolate. I add only 3 tablespoons of honey to cut down on “sugar”. Mariel Lewis November 3, 2013 Yay!!!! Kari Sell July 9, 2013 Think that substituting avocados for the bananas would work? Sometimes the banana taste in recipes overwhelms me… Mariel Lewis November 3, 2013 Oh, interesting. Let me know how that works out! Robin October 27, 2013 Tried these today and they didn’t ever set up in the freezer . . . Any suggestions? Thanks so much. Mariel Lewis October 29, 2013 Hello Robin! Can you expand on your comment “they didn;t ever set up in the freezer”? What do you mean by that? I’d love to help guide you on this one as it is a super yummy recipe!
