Vegan Samoa Bars
Almond-Base | Cashew-Base | Creamer-Base | Dairy-Free | Keto | Oat-Powder | Recipe | Sugar-Free | Vegan | Vegetarian |
Sweet tooth kicking in? These Vegan Samoa Bars are the ultimate sweet tooth satisfaction and they couldn’t be easier to make. They taste just like samoa girl scout cookies, but with a healthier twist!
An almond shortbread crust is slightly sweetened with maple syrup and we top that with a delicious and creamy coconut filling made from JOI nut base and lots of shredded coconut. No added sugar in this dessert! We top it off with melted dairy- free chocolate and pop it in the fridge for storage!
These bars are great to eat immediately or can be stored in the fridge for up to 7 days. Freeze for a cool treat and for even longer storage time. This is a great dessert recipe that could fool anyone into thinking that it is the real thing!

The Skinny Truth About Fats
With all the “low-fat” and “fat-free” products on the market, it’s not a surprise that most people have a negative association with fats—whether it’s about gaining weight, raising cholesterol levels, increasing risk for heart disease... talk about a bad reputation. All of which is true, but only to a certain extent. The fat we eat, known as dietary fat, is one of three essential macronutrients in a diet. Carbohydrates, proteins and fats are the three musketeers of nutrition and must stay together through all your meals, not one can be excluded from the dinner party... (we're looking at you, keto diet).
