Red Raspberry Crumble Bars

Sharon Palmer

I am a sucker for a fruit crumble bar. Those layers of fruits and crunchy grains are so satisfying, yet so healthy and delicious. That’s why I created this vegan recipe featuring red raspberries—you can use fresh when they are in season, and frozen when they are not available. This recipe for Red Raspberry Crumble bars was chosen as second runner-up in the National Processed Raspberry Council’s recipe contest!

Succulent red raspberries are perfectly showcased in crumbly oat and grain desserts, where their ruby, sweet-tart flavors just shine right through! In my super-easy, delicious, and wholesome version, whole grain oats, whole wheat flour and hemp seeds form earthy crumbled layers for the juicy berries. Now this is a dessert you can feel good about eating any day of the week—even for brunch!

Check out my video on how to use raspberries in your diet below.

Step-By-Step Guide:

Mix together whole wheat flour, oats, baking powder, hemp seeds, and cinnamon; then cut in dairy-free margarine with a fork until crumbly.
Line a 9-inch baking dish with parchment paper, and sprinkle 2/3 of the crumbly dough in the bottom of the dish.
Pat crumbs down with your fingers.
Mix raspberries with lemon juice and sugar; pour over crumbly dough.
Smooth raspberry filling evenly over the dough.
Make sure crumbly dough is spread evenly over the filling.
Bake at 350 F for 35-40 minutes until golden.
Cool slightly and slice into squares. Enjoy warm!

    • You could try to use almond butter or tahini or applesauce, however, I have not tried that yet in this recipe. Please let me know if this turns out good!
