Raspberry Crumble Bars, the most indulgent keto low-carb dessert I have ever made. Do you love my easy low carb recipes? Well, this one is definitely an easy one!
Healthy Raspberry Crumble Bars
You may have noticed that my hubby is into vegan food right. He stopped eating meat, fish, and eggs to respect animals but also to protect our planet.
We have always been aware that we eat too much animal food – especially eggs. I still eat eggs from time to time but making vegan swaps whenever possible is a great step to a conscious lifestyle.
So, these healthy Raspberry Crumble Bars are vegan, egg-free, dairy-free, and packed full of healthy things like coconut flour, chia seeds, and almond meal. Do you see that crumbly bottom layer?
Coconut flour a healthy crumbly flour
It is the best! Coconut flour makes the most delicious crumble bars. Even better when combined with nuts and more coconut.
You guys know that I love baking with coconut flour, and I know you love it! My coconut flour pie crust is one of your favorite recipes of all time.
So here, I chose to make these raspberry crumble bars with coconut. If there is one combo I love more than anything, it is coconut and raspberry. Look at these slices! Does it make you hungry?

When I was a kid in France, my grandma looked after me every day after school. She always bought stuffed croissants with raspberry jam and toasted coconut.
I believe my obsession for this combo of flavor comes from here. Nowadays, it is always a mix of flavors I love on my toast or pancakes. But these raspberry crumble bars really are the perfection!
Making a Raspberry Crumble Bar
If you are a lover of crumble bars, you will love this simple healthy raspberry crumble bars recipe. So here is how to make them.
It is a very simple recipe as all you have to do is processing each ingredient – for the bottom layer – into a food processor. It just takes 5 minutes to prepare.
The bottom layer is my favorite part. It is ‘buttery’ with a lovely crumb texture that melts in your mouth.
The filling is a super healthy jam, the sweetest raspberry chia seed jam you’ll ever make with no refined sugar.
Finally, the coconut crust on top is crunchy, with a delicious taste of roasted coconut that goes so well with the raspberry jam.
I really can’t say more about these healthy raspberry crumble bars.
I hope everyone will love them as my family does. I wish you all a great week. Thanks for reading the blog, and happy baking!

RASPBERRY CHIA JAM
- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
- Prepare an 8-inch square baking tray covered with parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a food processor with the S blade attachment, add the almond meal, desiccated coconut, coconut flour, honey, salt, coconut oil and vanilla, and water (start with 8 tbsp). Process until it gets crumbly and all the ingredients are coming together. If too crumbly - it means it does not form a dough ball when firmly pressed within your hands - add 2 extra tablespoons of water. I added 10 tablespoons of water. Always add 2 tbsp at a time and check with a small portion of the dough. If it holds well together, you added enough water.
- Evenly press the batter into the prepared baking tray. I used my fingers and flattened the layer pressing with a spatula.
- Using a fork, prick the base a few times on a few areas to prevent the base from popping when baking.
- Bake for 15 minutes. Cooldown fully in the tray before spreading the raspberry jam on top.
RASPBERRY CHIA SEED JAM
- While the bottom layer is baking, prepare the jam. In a small saucepan, add all the jam ingredients. Cook the jam under medium heat, constantly stirring to avoid burning the jam. It is ready when the raspberries are fully melted, and it forms a thick jam. It should not take more than 5-6 minutes.
- Set aside in a bowl to fully cool down and thicken a little bit. You can bring the jam outside on the deck to cool down faster. It does not have to be cold, room temperature is fine.
- Spread the jam onto the baked bottom layer and return in the oven for 10 minutes to set.
- Remove from the oven. Set aside while you prepare the top layer.
- Add all the top layer ingredients into a mixing bowl. Use your hand to combine the ingredients, rubbing the coconut oil and liquid sweetener onto the dry ingredients to create a crumbly batter. It is the messy part!
- Crumble these ingredients on top of the last layer - the chia jam - and return the tray to the oven for 10 minutes to slightly toast the coconut crumble layer.
- Fully cool down for 1 hour in the pan. You can place the pan in a cooler place like outside on the deck to cool down faster. The jam must be set and at room temperature before making slices. Place the pan for 1 hour in the fridge to set the jam faster and make it easier to slice.
- This recipe makes 16 slices. Store up to 1 week in the pantry in an airtight plastic box.
