Blueberry Coconut Bars


Dairy & gluten free

These blueberry bars are great for a healthy dessert, or for breakfast. Almond flour is used for the crust and sweetened condensed coconut milk (in place of dairy condensed milk) is used for the filling.

What is sweetened condensed milk?

Sweetened condensed milk is milk that has all of the water removed from it using heat. It is found in cans and is sticky, thick, and sweet. It is not the same as evaporated milk! Evaporated milk, also in a can, has all of the water removed, but is not sweet, there is no sugar added. Sweetened condensed coconut milk uses coconut milk instead of cow’s milk. It is perfect for dairy free desserts! If you are not dairy free, feel free to use dairy sweetened condensed milk for this blueberry coconut bars.
Sweetened condensed coconut milk can be found at Whole Foods, and other health food stores. I have even found it at Target. It will be in the baking isle.

Blueberries! But use what you have on hand…

Try swapping the blueberries for other favorite fruits that you may have on hand: raspberries, strawberries, dates or cherries would work well here.

You Need

For the Crust

For the Topping


Make the Crust

    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    • Mix together all ingredients for crust, working coconut oil into the almond flour until well incorporated. It helps to use the back of a spoon and mash the oil and flour against the side of the bowl.
    • Press crust into a small, lightly greased baking dish. 
    • Bake for 10 minutes. The crust will finish cooking when we cook the bars later.
    This is a small recipe, making 8 bars, I used a 7 x 4 " baking dish. Anything small will work fine. You don't want to put this in a very large baking dish as the bars will be spread too thin and will not hold their shape.

Make the Topping

    • Combine all topping ingredients and mix until combined. 
    • Pour topping on partially baked crust, press down, packing well.
    • Bake 20-25 minutes, until lightly browned.
    • Remove from oven, let cool.
    • Chill in the refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours. This will firm the bars up so they can be cut without falling apart.
    • Cut into squares.
    • I love eating these cold out of the fridge!
