These No Bake Chocolate Strawberry Cashew Butter Bars have a creamy strawberry cashew butter base, topped with dark chocolate and a strawberry drizzle. You only need seven ingredients to make these irresistible gluten-free, paleo and vegan cashew butter bars.

If you followed me back in the beginning of 2017, you saw me through a major homemade nut butter obsession. Don’t get me wrong – the obsession certainly continues to this day, but I’m not going through jars quite as quickly as I was early last year.

I still remember the moment I came up with the idea for the strawberry cashew butter! I made it so quickly after the idea came to fruition because I KNEW it was going to be good. That was a correct assumption – the recipe turned out to be smooth, creamy, deliciously strawberry-flavored perfection, with just three ingredients. All of my readers who have made it have come back telling me they loved it. It doesn’t last more than a week in most houses.

So, it was time to come up with a dessert that encompasses those same irresistible flavors and evokes the same feelings of total bliss. The recipe had to be creamy, naturally sweetened, full of flavor, and of course…pink ??. Luckily, these No Bake Chocolate Strawberry Cashew Butter Bars certainly do the trick!

Even better? You only need seven ingredients to make them, beautiful pink drizzle and all :) but of course, the pink drizzle isn’t entirely necessary – so you can keep it even simpler with just six ingredients. Of course, all of them are gluten-free, paleo, and vegan too.

Let’s make No-Bake Chocolate Strawberry Cashew Butter Bars!

Of course, the base of the bars is cashew butter. You can use raw or roasted – I used roasted here and love the additional flavor of the roasted cashews, but raw has a certain butteriness that’s absolutely delicious, and the bars will be a more beautiful color of pink if you use raw cashew butter, because of it’s lighter color.

Pure maple syrup sweetens the bars. Honey can also be used if you prefer (but remember, honey isn’t vegan!). We add coconut flour to help absorb excess oils and moisture, along with some coconut oil. The coconut oil helps the bars firm up and keep their shape when they’re cool.

For the strawberry flavor and that beautiful pink color, we use one of my favorite ingredients: freeze dried strawberries! A whole cup of them are crushed into powder and mixed into the cashew butter mixture. The mixture is spread into a pan and placed in the fridge to cool, so we can prep the chocolate and strawberry drizzle toppings.

We melt the dark chocolate with some cashew butter, which keeps the chocolate from becoming too firm. We spread it on top of the bars and then drizzle it all with the strawberry drizzle. The strawberry drizzle is a mixture of coconut butter and freeze-dried strawberry powder. Yum!

Once they’re ready to devour and you sink your teeth into one of the No Bake Chocolate Strawberry Cashew Butter Bars, you won’t be able to put it down! The creamy, strawberry filling pairs with the dark chocolate for a match made in heaven. It will make your taste buds dance ? grab your ingredients and whip up a batch! Enjoy :)

Ingredients

1½cups(384g) creamy cashew buttercan also use almond butter, but the flavor is more pronounced

For the strawberry drizzle

Instructions

Line a 8x8” pan with parchment paper and grease lightly with coconut oil; set aside.

In a mixing bowl, stir together the cashew butter, maple syrup, coconut flour, crushed freeze dried strawberry powder, and coconut oil. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Place in the fridge to firm up.

Combine the dark chocolate and cashew butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until the chocolate is melted and smooth. It took 1 minute in my microwave. Pour the chocolate over the cashew butter base and spread to cover the top.

In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut butter and freeze dried strawberry powder. Pour into a small zip bag or piping bag, and while the chocolate is still warm, drizzle the coconut strawberry butter over the chocolate. I did lines back and forth across the bars, and then ran a toothpick through the lines perpendicularly. Place back in the fridge.

Let firm up for at least two hours before cutting into 16 bars and serving. To cut cleanly through the chocolate, I recommend using a warm knife (I like to run it under very hot water to warm it up, and then dry before cutting). Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, tightly sealed.
