Beside apples, blueberries and cherries, mangoes are absolutely perfect to use for this kind of sweet, easy and simple dessert. Since mango fruit is juicy, some cornstarch is needed and I combined it with chia seeds. They thicken the filling and bring healthy kick to these tasty sweet bars.

Mango Chia bars can be made with both fresh and canned fruit. If you make this dessert using canned ones, keep the syrup since some liquid is required to add to the crust and if you use syrup instead of sour cream, it gives perfect results since you have mango flavours both in crust and filling.
