Chocolate Raspberry Bars

These Berry Honey Bars were such a great dessert I didn't think they could be improved. But really, anything is improved if you add chocolate. Right?

Note: This is not a recipe for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet as chocolate is not allowed.

Chocolate Raspberry Bars



1 1/4 c. almond flour
dash cinnamon
3 T. shortening or butter
1 tsp. honey


1-10 oz jar 100% fruit raspberry jelly or jam
scant 1 c. fresh or frozen raspberries


1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 cup toasted almonds, coarsely chopped
1 cup blanched almond flour
2 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
1/3 c. bittersweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
2. Combine crust ingredients and mix thoroughly, press into an oiled 8"x8" baking dish.
3. Bake for 15 minutes or until crust barely begins to brown. Remove from oven and raise oven temperature to 350 degrees.
4. Place jam or jelly into a microwave safe dish. Heat in microwave for 1 minute.
5. Stir fruit into jam or jelly and pour over warm crust. Spread to evenly distribute. Set aside.
6. Combine topping ingredients except for chocolate chips with your fingers until mixed but still lumpy. Crumble over fruit mixture then sprinkle chocolate chips over the top.
7. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and let cool. Either refrigerate or freeze for 2 hours before cutting. Store in the refrigerator or freezer they won't hold together if stored at room temperature.
