Vegan Coconut Oat Bars with Juicy Blackberry

December 23, 2013

Vegan baking sometimes gets labeled as dry, tough or boring, but these blackberry coconut bars from Pies and Plots prove quite the opposite. Oats create a light and chewy texture, along with moist shredded coconut and incredibly juicy blackberries that spread through the bars as they bake. Yum.
