Happy Strawberry Banana Raw Vegan Bars

February 24, 2014

Here is the recipe for a perfect (and healthy- shh!) fruit-filled raw vegan dessert bar! I have had this one on the mind for a while and I finally got to it. These raw bars can be eaten for breakfast, after dinner or honestly whenever you want as long as you are near a freezer! These delicious treats can be created in under ten minutes and only take about an hour to freeze into form. Another perk: these bars come out bright pink; pink makes me happy, hence their title.  Enjoy creating these perfect little pink bars of fruity raw vegan perfection!

Add almonds and fruit to food processor and pulse a bit to break them up

Add water and cashew milk and pulse a few times to blend well

Add rolled oats to food processor a 1/4 cup at a time and pulse to a uniform (somewhat chunky) texture
