To make these Vegan Raspberry Bars, you can start by making the brownie batter. And spread it on the bottom of a brownie pan lined with parchment paper. That will help later removing the cake from the pan.

Now, time to make the blondie batter. Be careful not to try to eat it all, because it’s so delicious (even raw) and I just want to eat it with a spoon. This is the best vegan and paleo blondie I’ve ever made and tasted!

Spread half of the blondie batter over the brownies. And top with fresh raspberries. You have no idea of the delicious consistency these berries will be, after being baked between this gooey vegan blondie.

You can top the raspberries with the other half of the blondie batter.

Simply scatter spoonfuls of batter over the raspberries, and the use your hands to press down and I promise you everything will come together so beautifully.

Look how smooth!

Then you can bake it, baby!

TIP: If the top of the bars are browning too fast, and the middle isn’t keeping up with the baking, you can put a piece of aluminum foil over the pan while you finish baking. Maybe try reducing the temperature to 325F also.

I love every bit of these Raspberry Vegan Bars, but the blondie in the middle is the best most gooey thing in the world, and I want to marry it. Specially with the bits of fresh raspberry in there, with a pop of juiciness, and a bit of tart! Yum!

You will probably enjoy bringing these Vegan Raspberry Bars to a vegan potluck, or for vegan Valentine’s Day, or maybe just because they look so damn good that you don’t even need to be a vegan to make them and eat them!

Vegan Brownies
  • Start by mixing the flax seeds with the water. Set aside for 15 minutes for mixture to thicken.
  • Now mix the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, coconut sugar, espresso powder, and fine sea salt, in a bowl together. Use a whisk to help incorporate all the ingredients very well.
  • In another bowl, add 1/3 cup chopped chocolate and coconut oil. Place on top of a pan of simmering water.
  • Whisk until chocolate is melted and incorporated with coconut oil. Add cashew butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth.
  • Pour chocolate mixture over dry ingredients. Add flax seeds mixture to the bowl also.
  • Mix with a spatula until incorporated. Add remaining 1/3 cup chopped chocolate. Mix until combined.
Vegan Blondies
  • Mix almond flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, sift and set aside.
  • Mix coconut butter, maple syrup and coconut oil in a bowl. Melt in the microwave, at 15 second intervals, until completely melted, stirring in between.
  • Whisk mixture well. Add vanilla extract, and milk to the bowl.
  • Whisk until combined.
  • Add dry sifted ingredients to wet mixture.
  • Mix with a spatula until completely incorporated.
Vegan Chocolate Frosting
  • Place coconut cream in a small saucepan. Place over medium heat.
  • Keep stirring until coconut cream starts to heat up.
  • Sift cocoa powder into warm coconut cream, whisk until cocoa powder incorporates with coconut cream and mixture almost comes to a boil.
  • Remove from the heat, add chocolate chips to the mixture. Stir with a spatula until chocolate has melted.
  • Add maple syrup and whisk until combined.
  • If there are still chocolate lumps, simply bring it back to the burner, with the heat on the lowest setting. And gently stir mixture until everything is melted.
  • Don’t ever let the mixture come to an actual boil or raise bubbles.
  • Pour smooth chocolate frosting in a bowl. Let it sit on top of the counter until it has cooled down, and has a spreadable and firm consistency.
To assemble
  • Pre-heat oven to 350F. Line a 8×8” cake pan with parchment paper.
  • Pour chocolate brownie batter in the bottom of the prepared pan. Use a spatula, or your hands to smooth it out and cover the entire bottom.
  • Spread half of the blondie batter over chocolate brownie. Use a spatula or your hands to make it smooth and even.
  • Now place about 1/3 cup of raspberries scattered over the blondie batter.
  • Top with the remaining blondie batter. Now it will be best to press down the batter as it incorporates and smooths out.
  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for 25-35 minutes, place a piece of foil over brownies if the top is browning too fast.
  • Let it cool down completely before spreading the frosting on top. Place it in the fridge for a couple of hours.
  • Slice and serve
  • These vegan bars will store well in the fridge for up to 4 days.


*Make sure you are using coconut cream, and not coconut milk. Coconut cream is thicker than coconut milk.
*If you wish to substitute the coconut butter, replace it for the same amount of another nut butter of your preference.

  1. Could something replace the almond flour in the recipe? This looks amazing but I cannot have almonds

    1. Hey Steph, you could try substituting oat flour, coconut flour, or even regular all purpose flour. Please let me know if you have any more questions or if any of those flours work for you. Thank you so much!

  2. These look great. With coconut allergy, do you have any recommendations to swap out coconut oil and coconut butter?

    1. Yes, so in this recipe you can substitute the coconut oil for any other oil, such as avocado oil, or oil of your choice. The coconut butter can be substituted for any other nut butter of your choice. The coconut sugar can be replaced for any sweetener of your choice, including maple syrup, just because it’s such a small amount used that substituting for a liquid sweetener won’t really alter the recipe that much. And the coconut cream in the frosting can be substituted for any milk you want, just reduce the amount by half. hope this helps! Thanks for your question!

  3. For the brownie part of the recipe it says 3 tbsp cup maple syrup. Does this mean 3 tbsp plus one cup? Ha

    1. Hey thanks so much for pointing that out to me! It’s just 3 tbsp!! Ill fix the recipe now! Thank you again! Have a lovely day!
