What's a Cranberry Bliss Bar? It's a blondie that's loaded with dried cranberries and white chocolate chips topped with a layer of cream-cheese icing garnished with orange zest and a sprinkle of dried cranberries. Often found in a very large popular coffee chain ;)

But, what makes this recipe special? Not only is it a homemade better-for-you version (gluten-free & grain-free!), this recipe is super easy to make using our Otto’s Naturals Grain-Free Ultimate Cookie Mix



  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened (can be dairy-free)
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • ½ Tablespoon orange zest
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup dried cranberries, roughly chopped
  • 2 squares white baking chocolate or almond bark, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8x8-inch pan with parchment paper.
  2. Mix Otto's Grain-Free Ultimate Cookie Mix, vanilla, egg, butter, cinnamon, and ground ginger. Once thoroughly mixed, add in white chocolate chips and dried cranberries. Stir until combined.
  3. Spread the cookie dough evenly into the pan. Bake for 20 minutes. The middle will still be jiggly. Let the cookie layer cool completely before making the topping.
  4. To make the topping, add softened cream cheese, orange zest, and powdered sugar to a large bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth.
  5. Melt the white chocolate squares in a small saucepan over low heat. Slowly add half the melted white chocolate to the cream cheese mixture (save the rest to drizzle on top) and blend until smooth.
  6. Sprinkle on the dried cranberries. Drizzle the remaining melted white chocolate on top. Let the bars chill for at least 2 hours before slicing and serving.
