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.

Blackberry Butter Bars
|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|
Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper, creating a 1" overhang on both sides. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
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.
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.
Cool completely, remove from pan and cut into small squares. Enjoy!
