These exquisite looking vegan raspberry slice bars, are best enjoyed semi frozen, and literally take less than 15 minutes to prepare, before you pop them into the freezer to set! 🙂

Let’s Whip Up Some Raw Raspberry Slice Bars 

For the base, add the medjool dates, pits removed, into a food processor, and blend until it forms a paste. Next, add the almond meal, shredded coconut, and pecans, to the food processor, and blend until fine.

Transfer all that goodness into an 8 x 4 x 1/2-inch loaf pan (20 x 10 x 6 cm), lined with baking paper, then form an even base, with your fingers, and set aside.

For the Blackberry Layer

In a small pot, add an inch (2.5 cm) of water, bring it to a boil, then turn off the heat and place a heat proof, glass bowl on top of the pot.

Add the coconut oil to your bowl, to melt. Next add the almond butter, and maple syrup, and give it a quick whisk. Finally, add the defrosted, and strained blackberries, briefly whisk, then blend until smooth, and set aside.

For the Raspberry Layer

Repeat the instructions above, adding the raspberries instead of the blackberries.

Assembling Our Raw Raspberry Slice Bars

Pour the blackberry layer on top of your base, and even it out with a spatula. If your mixture is too warm, pop the loaf pan into the freezer for 10 minutes, to slightly set.

Repeat with the raspberry layer, and pop your raw raspberry slice bars into the freezer for an hour, or until they set.

When firm, *slice them into 9 bars, and decorate with a drizzle of melted dark chocolate, and frozen raspberries, before you dig in!

 *Soak a sharp, smooth knife, in a cup of boiled water, then dry the knife and slice. Repeat this stage with each slice, to ensure a smooth cut!
