Cranberry Bliss Bars

Cranberry Bliss Bars

These Cranberry Bliss Bars made with Shakeology and other wholesome ingredients are a healthier twist on a well-loved treat.

With just 9 grams of sugar, these bars have just the right amount of sweetness.

And best of all, these bliss bars come together in a cinch without any baking — mix the ingredients in a food processor, press them into a baking pan, and chill in the fridge.

For a firm texture like the blondies they’re based on, keep refrigerated until ready to eat. The bars will soften at room temperature, but they’ll still taste yummy!

For a vegan Cranberry Bliss Bar, swap the honey for maple syrup and use Vegan Vanilla Shakeology.

If cranberries aren’t your thing, you can use a different type of dried fruit instead.

Raisins or dried currants will give the bar a similar look. Or try chopped dried pineapple, mango, or apricots for a summery flavor.
