Vegan Berry Bars

Friends, these delicious vegan berry bars are seriously delish! They are the perfect way to use up those summer berries, even if you have frozen them.

They are SO good.

I love that they have this amazing thick crust, thick crust, in general, is my jam. I love really any crust, pizza crust, pie crust, you name it I likely love it.

Maybe I just love bread products?

Either way you need these in your life. They are quick to throw together and the flavor is pretty good!

I am SO behind on life currently.

It is Friday and I am just now getting this post done for Sunday.

YIKES!

I used to be 3 months out but with the challenging times currently happening this year, having kids home 24/7 and doing house renovations non stop this summer I am slacking on the blog!

Back to these amazing berry bars. I made these and sent some to a friend who just had a baby. She and her husband reviews were a two big thumbs up and wanted to make more asap.

They are good folks!

What do you need for these delicious vegan berry bars?

  • berries (I usually use frozen, thawed out berries)
  • white sugar
  • cornstarch
  • lemon zest
  • almond or vanilla extract
  • flour
  • brown sugar
  • vegan milk
  • vegan butter
  • graham crackers

How do you make them?

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and greasing an 8×8 pan or place foil with an overlap so you can pull the bars out in one piece, grease the foil.

If you are using frozen berries unthaw them in a medium bowl it’s okay if some are still frozen you don’t want them complete mush.

Add the remaining filling ingredients and stir gently and set aside.

Now start the crust. Take a medium-size bowl and add the flour and sugars, stir. Take the vegan butter and a pastry cutter (or fork) and crumble the butter into the flour mixture until it’s combined well, it will be a bit crumbly and that’s okay.

Now add your vegan milk and fold the batter until it absorbs the dough. This is a thick somewhat crumbly dough (kind of like making biscuits).

Take the dough and press it evenly into the bottom of the 8×8 pan. Bake this for 9 minutes.

Remove from the oven and place the graham crackers on the top of the dough covering the majority of the crust.

Now take the berries they will be liquidy and pour it over the crust.

Bake this for 40-45 minutes.

The berries will thicken as cooked.

Wait a few hours before cutting or else it will be too hard to move.

You can speed this up by placing them in the freezer for 30 minutes or so then cutting them into squares.

These taste great cold from the fridge.

Can these be made a day before? Should I just store in the fridge and then cut them the day I need them?
