Vegan Cranberry Bliss Bars

Vegan Cranberry Bliss Bars

Made with Let's Do Organic Cornstarch by Natalie of @feastingonfruit

This is a homemade vegan & gluten-free version of the popular Starbucks holiday treat!

They taste just like the original with a little extra spice, lots of orange zest, and all the creamy dairy-free deliciousness on top.

How pretty is this cranberry studded holiday treat?!

The coffee chain describes bliss bars as "a blondie cake with dried cranberries—finished with a layer of cream-cheese icing flecked with orange zest and a sprinkle of dried cranberries."

You can even skip all the frosting and drizzles—these moist, chewy, fruit-filled bars are a total treat without too!

They're made vegan and gluten-free with a mix of almond flour, coconut flour, and Let’s Do Organic Cornstarch for the idyllic just-crumbly-enough cookie bar texture!

Cranberry Bliss Bars are perfect bringing to holiday parties, gift-giving and anything and everything during the holiday season!
