Cranberry Bliss Bars

Cranberry Bliss Bars

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

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!

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.

These Cranberry Bliss Bars taste just like the original only these are healthier, with smooth almond butter, shredded coconut, and pumpkin pie spice.
