Editor’s note: This month we are sharing Hazel & Cacao’s No-Bake Raw Cherry Ripe Bars! This delicious recipe is raw, gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free!


Cherry Filling

  • 3 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of frozen cherries
  • ⅓ cup of frozen raspberries or strawberries

Chocolate Coating

  • ½ cup melted cacao butter or coconut oil
  • ½ cup cacao powder
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or coconut syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a food processor, blitz together the coconut oil, honey & desiccated coconut.
  2. Pulse through the vanilla extract, shredded coconut, frozen cherries & raspberries, leaving small chunks of coconut and berries for texture.
  3. Tip into a 20cm metal baking tray lined with baking paper and use the back of a wooden spoon to level the mixture, then place in the freezer for 1 hour.
  4. Place the cacao butter or coconut oil in a thick-based saucepan over low heat and allow to melt while gently stirring.
  5. Stir cacao powder, syrup, and vanilla extract through melted butter/oil. Stand aside to cool down and slightly thicken.
  6. Pull the cherry block from the freezer and cut into small rectangles or squares.
  7. Using something flat like a butter knife or small flat spatula, dip the cherry blocks into the chocolate sauce and then place onto a tray lined with baking paper.
  8. Place your cherry ripes in the fridge or freezer to set and enjoy at your convenience!
