Copycat Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bars

My family always loved getting these bars at Christmas time so to save us some money & a sugar rush, I made a healthier version & LET ME TELL YOU they taste just like the real thing, I might even like these better.

Out of all the holiday treats I made this year, these cranberry bliss bars were eaten the fastest & were everyone's favorite!

I think the secret ingredient to this recipe is the orange zest, it brings out so much flavor to the entire bar. I promise you these will be like potato chips, you won't be able to eat just one (and you won't have to).

    What size pan did you use and how did you prepare it?

      I used a 4 x6 pan but you can double the recipe and use something larger! The way I cut it was across, vertical, & diagonal to create the triangle shapes

    What can be substituted for the coconut oil?

      Instead of coconut oil you can use vegetable oil or butter!
