1 1/2 cups flour (almond or cassava)
½ cup Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener with Allulose
½ tsp salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup thick cut coconut flakes
- 2 cups fresh raspberries
1/4 cup Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener with Allulose
- 2 Tbls lemon juice
1 Tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder
For the Crust and Topping:
For the Raspberry Filling:
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Line an 8x8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on two sides for easy removal, or spray with your favorite cooking spray
- In a mixing bowl, combine flour, Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener with Allulose, and salt.
- Stir in the melted butter and vanilla extract until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Press about two-thirds of the crust mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking pan to create an even layer. Reserve the remaining third for the topping.
- In a separate bowl, combine the fresh raspberries, Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener with Allulose, lemon juice, and cornstarch/arrowroot. Gently toss until the raspberries are coated.
- Spread the raspberry mixture evenly over the pressed in crust in the baking pan.
- Add coconut flakes to the remaining crust mixture. Sprinkle evenly over the raspberry filling. This will create the crumbly topping.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the raspberry filling is bubbly.
- Allow the raspberry bars to cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes. Then, use the parchment paper overhangs to lift the bars out of the pan.
- Let the bars cool completely on a wire rack before slicing into squares.
Once cooled, cut the raspberry bars into squares and serve. They can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days for best freshness
