These delicious vegan raspberry bounty bars are the perfect healthy, dairy free alternative to the popular chocolate bar. They are made using just five ingredients and are honestly so tasty!

I based this recipe on my Easy 4 Ingredient Bounty Bars and just added a little twist so they are bursting with Summer flavours. I think the raspberries work so well in these bars and complement the coconut and chocolate perfectly.

These bars are quick and easy to make and require no cooking or blending meaning anyone can make them. You can use the fridge or freezer to help these set once they have been coated in chocolate. I personally like to use the freezer as I prefer a firmer texture – I also store them in there once set and just allow them a few minutes to thaw out before eating. If you are familiar with my original recipe you will know that these are a little wetter because of the water in the raspberries so they will be a little more difficult to shape, however, once set this won’t be a problem.

I have not specified which type of chocolate to use in this recipe as I think a dairy free dark, milk or white would work equally as well. In the batch photographed I used white chocolate as they are for my mother in law who has a real sweet tooth. The sweetness of the white chocolate balances the tart raspberries well, however, if I was making these for myself I would use dark chocolate in a nod to the classic shop bought version.

If desired you could try this using other berries such as strawberries, blueberries or blackberries and I think they would all work – I am just a big fan of raspberry and coconut together. You will need to use full fat coconut milk for this recipe. If the cream has split you will need to use the creamy part of the coconut milk rather than the watery part, however, you can save the watery part to use in a recipe such as this Tomato & Aubergine Thai Red Curry.

The preparation time I have noted for this recipe may seem excessive but please note this includes the time taken for the bars to set, it will only really take ten minutes to assemble these vegan bounty bars.
