Vegan Blueberry Bounty Bars

VEGAN BLUEBERRY BOUNTY BARS

I’m really enjoying coming up with healthier vegan and gluten-free alternatives to some of my favourite treats and chocolate bars. I’ve already made my own healthified versions of Twix bars and Snickers and naturally I had to move on to creating a healthier version of bounty bars next!

Bounty bars are up there as one of my all time favourite chocolate bars. As you may be able to tell by now, I don’t actually just have one favourite – I have many favourites that I like equally.

Vegan Blueberry Bounty Bars

The original bounty offers nothing in terms of nutrition. My version is higher in fibre and minerals like copper, iron, magnesium, zinc and manganese. And even though I used maple syrup to sweeten they’re still lower in sugar compared to the real thing.

To make them even healthier, I added in some Arctic Power Berries Blueberry powder to pack in some antioxidants and vitamins.

Note that these bounty bars are still high in fat and should be considered as a treat to be enjoyed in moderation. But as long as you’re eating lots of fruit, vegetables, wholegrains, nuts, seeds, beans and pulses you can indulge in something like this every once and a while.

These vegan blueberry bounty bars would make a perfect treat for Valentine’s day with their delicious and creamy lilacy filling.

In case you’re wondering, you can find Arctic Power Berries powders at places like Ocado, Selfridges and now Waitrose.
