Cranberry Bliss Bars

by Coach Courtney, RD www.vitalitynutrition.ca

 

 

We were inspired to make a revised Starbuck's Cranberry Bliss bar. We used a recipe adapted from SkinnyTaste that was shared by one of our amazing clients. The makeover version is lower in calories, carbohydrates, and fat but still tastes delicious – perfect for the holidays!  We recommend sharing these bars with your friends or family :)

 

Ingredients:


Cookie base
 

  • 2 cups (240g) flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup (56g) butter, melted

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar

  • 1/3 cup Truvia 

  • 2 egg whites (63g)

  • 1/2 cup applesauce

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 100g white chocolate chips (1/3 cup)

  • 1/4 cup (40g) dried cranberries


Cream Cheese Frosting
 

  • 454g (2 spreadable containers) 95% fat free cream cheese

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 tablespoon Truvia (or more if you want it sweeter)


Topping
 

  • 50g (~ 3 tablespoons) white chocolate chips, melted

  • 1/4 cup (40g) dried cranberries, chopped 

 

Directions:


Part 1: Cookie Base

  1. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl.

  2. In a seperate bowl, combine the melted butter, egg whites, apple sauce, sugar, and vanilla. Whisk until light and fluffy. 

  3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients.

  4. Fold in the white chocolate chips and dried cranberries.

  5. Spread the cookie mixture on a baking pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake for 20 minutes at 350F. Let the cookie base cool completely. 


Part 2: Frosting

  1. Soften the cream cheese and mix it with vanilla and Truvia. You can add more or less Truvia depending on your preference.

  2. Spread the cream cheese frosting evenly over the cooled cookie base.


Part 3: Assembly

  1. Sprinkle the dried craisins evenly on the bars. Drizzle the melted white chocolate. 

  2. Cut into 15 squares and then cut each square in half for a total of 30 triangles.
