These Best Ever Bars are an amazing paleo dessert. With just 6 healthy ingredients you can throw them together in a few minutes. To make them you’ll need almonds, coconut oil, raspberry jam, dark chocolate, coconut flakes, and salt.

The sweetener in Best Ever Bars is raspberry jam. It lends a subtle, yet deliciously fruity sweetness to this healthy dessert. It makes these no-bake bars taste like Raspberry Magic Bars, though with a lot less sugar, and far fewer ingredients!

Lately, I’ve been getting loads of comment here on the blog, as well as on Instagram, telling me how much you all appreciate the simplicity of my recipes. I’m so glad to hear that! As I outlined in my post, “A Piece of Me,” life can be complex, which is one more reason to make my recipes easy!

I just made these and they are fabulous. Another winner! Now to be able to keep my husband away from these.

This is another healthy no-bake summer dessert recipe that doesn’t require an oven. These Best Ever Bars set up in the refrigerator, so your house won’t be sweltering when you make them.

  1. I’m curious why you start with whole almonds instead of using almond meal or even almond flour since the almonds are ground up anyway. Seems like an unnecessary extra step- but since you do test your recipes a lot- did you find a significant difference? Thanks, Elana. I like easy and yummy!!!

    • Veronica, I get many requests from readers for recipes that use the whole almond since it’s less expensive than almond flour. Also the texture for this recipe is gravel and almond flour is the texture of sand so that won’t provide the desired results.
