Ingredients
  • 2 cups creamed coconut (you can probably also use coconut butter)

  • 2 cups fresh organic blueberries (frozen, thawed might work too)

  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup

  • 2 tsp ground vanilla beans

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor until the mixture is smooth.

  • Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper, leaving enough room for some paper to stick out the sides.

  • Dump the mixture into the pan and spread it out evenly. The mixture is very thick and you may need to wet a spatula to help spread it evenly.

  • Once the mixture is in the pan. Gently press down using the extra sides of parchment paper.

  • Stick the pan in the fridge to firm up. This should only take about 15-20 minutes.

  • Once the mixture is firm, lift the whole thing out by the edges of parchment paper.

  • I used a pizza cutter to cut mine into squares.Please store these bars in the fridge. I keep mine in an airtight container with a piece of parchment between each bar. They should last at least a week in the fridge and you can also freeze them for longer storage. Enjoy!
