Now that it’s summer (It’s a particularly hot day here in the UK!) it’s time to bring out the summery, fruity, light desserts (don’t worry I’ll also be posting chocolate recipes haha!), and these vegan raspberry chia bars tick all the right boxes!
I must admit I’m not the biggest fan of fruit pies, or cooked fruit desserts. I prefer eating my fruit raw and cold; however, rhubarb is one of those fruit (a vegetable, actually!) that you can’t eat any other way apart from cooked…so I thought why not give it a try. It’s so deliciously tart and not too sweet. In fact, I only used 2 tbsp sweetener in the filling and it was just right! Traditional recipes use anywhere between ½ and 1 cup of sugar for the filling alone!
