You don’t even need to add any sweetener if your mangoes are super sweet. So remember to adjust the amount of sweetener according to the mangoes you have available.

PRO TIP – Make sure you chill the bars before you enjoy them. Slice them when taken straight from the freezer. If the mango center starts to get warm, it will ruin the taste.

Gluten-Free Mango Bars

Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 2 hours
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 30 minutes

A healthy baked frozen dessert made with a nutty base and creamy mango custard filling.

Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup raw almonds
  • ½ cup raw walnuts
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 4-5 Tbsp coconut oil

Filling

  • 2 cups mangoes, chopped
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk

Garnishings (optional)

  • 2 Tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped walnuts

Instructions

    1. Add oats, almonds, walnuts, brown sugar, and salt to a blender and blend until you get a fine consistency.
    2. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add melted coconut oil, combine everything well to make a doughlike mixture. If too dry, add a bit more melted coconut oil.
    3. Transfer the mixture to a parchment-lined baking tray and spread evenly. Use a flat-bottomed object, such as a drinking glass or a spatula, to press down firmly until the crust is evenly distributed and well-packed.
    4. Bake it in the oven at 180°C (356°F) for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges and middle of the crust are golden brown. Then, remove it from the oven and let it cool.
    5. Now to prepare the mango filling, add the chopped mangoes, corn starch, pure vanilla extract, and milk to a blender. Mix on high until very creamy and smooth.
    6. Pour the batter over the pre-baked crust. Tap on the counter to remove any air bubbles.
    7. Sprinkle some desiccated coconut and finely chopped walnuts over the top.
    8. Place in the freezer(uncovered) for 2 hours to set and cool completely or in the refrigerator for 5-6 hours or overnight.
    9. Remove the bar from the freezer and lift it out of the pan with the parchment paper. Cut it into squares, serve, and enjoy!
    10. Store the leftover bars in the freezer for 3-4 days, or in the fridge for up to 2 days.
