Delicious Raw Buster Bar Recipe

If you are craving something rich and decadent this Raw Buster Bar Dessert is perfect for you this holiday season! This is an indulgent, creamy dessert with so many healthy ingredients, you'll wonder how it tastes so good.

You can make this Vegan Buster Bar Dessert in an 8 inch spring-form pan as a full cake or you can make it in individual servings using a muffin tin. Chilling your muffin tin first before layering is a great tip. This makes your ganache harden right away and the other layers easier to work with. You will most likely have left over ganache. Just place it in a sealed-tight container and store it on your counter. It should last a week or so.

If you are not a peanut butter fan feel free to substitute with cashew butter. This gives a really nice flavor that I have made before as well.

This is a magnificent dessert when you really want to ‘wow’ someone with a healthy recipe! This is a real treat!

AVOCADOS
An analysis of data
from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), indicates that consuming avocados may be associated with better diet quality and nutrient intake level, lower intake of added sugars, lower body weight, BMI and waist circumferences, higher “good cholesterol” levels and lower metabolic syndrome risk.

MAPLE SYRUP
Maple syrup is one of the many wonders of the world and far more than a simple sweetener. Maple syrup is not only rich in essential nutrients such manganese as well as zinc, but 34 new beneficial compounds discovered just a few years ago have been confirmed to play a key role in human health.

COCONUT OIL
The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV and cancer, dental care, and bone strength. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and its properties such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial and soothing properties.
