- 4 tbsp Coconut Oil
- 2 tbsp Almond milk
- 100g Frozen raspberries
- 4 tbsp Honey or maple syrup – (we used honey)

Tip : This recipe is only Vegan and Dairy free if you use a suitable dark chocolate so check the ingredients carefully
We needed no fancy equipment at all to be able to make this Madeline Shaw recipe. Your kitchen is probably full of this equipment already, and if it’s not then it should be!
- Measuring Cups and Spoons
- Blender or food processor – (we recommend a Food Processor)
- Mixing bowl – ( suitable for melting chocolate)
- Baking paper
- Sharp knife
- Baking tin – (we used one that was 20cm x 20 cm and it was perfect)
Tip : Don’t forget the baking paper!
This recipe was easy enough to follow, but did make a little mess! You can watch us making the recipe in the video above.
The method is…
The only issue we found was that our blender was too small to blend the ingredients all at once, so we had to do this in smaller batches (which was a little frustrating…)
From start to finish it took us 90 minutes to make Madeleine Shaw’s Raspberry Ripple bars. This included leaving the bars to set in the freezer for 60 minutes, so really we were only in the kitchen for 30 ish minutes.
Tip : Don’t make the same mistake as us, use a large Food Processor instead of a blender!
Madeleine Shaw’s Raspberry Ripple Bars contain all natural, healthy ingredients and are free from gluten, refined sugar, nuts and dairy. The combination of honey, fruit and chocolate raises the sugar content, but in a balanced diet this isn’t an issue!
This recipe leaves you with ten gooey, melt in the mouth snack bars. We loved the bitterness of the raspberries and the sweetness of the chocolate. They are an incredible vibrant pink that would be great for lunch boxes, parties and picnics (kids will love them!)
#NAILEDIT OR #FAILED IT?
The recipe was relatively simple and fuss free, the ingredients were easy to source and only standard kitchen equipment was needed. Costing only $1.07 AUD / £0.63 GBP / $0.84 USD per bar and full of healthy ingredients, we think these delicious snack bars were 100% worth the effort!
