Fall is just starting to find its way in Victoria and blackberry season is about to be over here. Before that happens, I want to make sure I share this amazing, super easy and really delicious recipe I made last month before summer is officially gone!
Blackberries grow pretty much everywhere here! I got the chance to forage them all summer long, and with those I made these really awesome bars that taste like heaven!
You only need a few ingredients, it is rich, creamy and sweet enough to satisfy any of those dessert cravings! It is also free of oils, gluten and raw!
Gastrawnomica’s Raw Blackberry Cheesecake Bars (Oil & Gluten Free)
Makes 7-8 bars
2 cups raw cashews, soaked 6-8 hours
1 1/2 cups fresh blackberries
3 Tbsp melted coconut butter (or coconut oil)
1/4 cup maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
5 stevia drops
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2-3/4 cup room temperature water
Blend all the ingredients except blackberries until you have a very smooth and creamy texture. Add water as needed, start with 1/2 cup and add the rest if the mixture is too dense or you find it hard to blend until very smooth.
Take 1 cup of the mixture and reserve. Add blackberries to the leftover mixture and blend again until you have a very smooth texture and vibrant color.
Spread this over square pan. Take big tbsp of the white mixture you reserved and put on top of blackberry mix. Using a knife make swirls with both mixtures. Freeze the bars for 18 hours and let it sit for a few minutes before cutting. These can be kept on the freezer if you won’t eat them very soon.
