Undoubtably, one of my favorite things about summer is all the delicious berries: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries—yum! And when I'm not eating multiple containers full of berries (it happens on a daily basis, just ask my coworkers), my favorite way to consume them is in baked goods like these scrumptious Blackberry Butter Bars from Lark & Linen.

Ingredients
1 box of yellow cake mix 4 Tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut
4 Tbsp. butter, melted 3 eggs
1 Tbsp. lemon zest 10 oz. blackberries
8 oz. cream cheese, softened 2 oz. coconut milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar 1 tsp. real vanilla extract
Instructions
1.
Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper, creating a 1" overhang on both sides. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together cake mix, coconut, melted butter, 1 egg and lemon zest. Press mixture into the bottom of the parchment lined pan, creating an even coat. Sprinkle the blackberries on top and set aside.
3.
In a separate bowl, blend together the cream cheese, coconut milk, eggs, sugar and vanilla until well combined. Pour overtop blackberries and bake for 35-45 minutes. The edges should be light golden brown, and the centre should sill be a little wiggly.
