How To Make Raspberry Crumble Bars
This is a (relatively) simple recipe, made with a few wholesome ingredients.
- Almond Flour – Almond flour is a delicious low-carb flour that brings a nutty taste with a lot of nutrients. Pick ultra-fine almond flour for the best results.
- Desiccated Coconut – I like unsweetened desiccated coconut to reduce the added sugars in the recipe.
- Coconut Flour – Coconut flour is another healthy flour full of fiber and nutrients that adds a delicious coconut taste.
- Coconut Oil – Prefer using unrefined coconut oil. You could also use melted butter if you don’t have coconut oil, but it won’t be dairy-free anymore.
- Maple Syrup – Use sugar-free maple syrup for keto-friendly raspberry bars.
- Vanilla – vanilla extract or essence brings a delicious taste to the recipe. You can also use grated vanilla pods.
- Raspberries – Fresh or frozen raspberries can be used to make sugar-free jam. Raspberries are low-carb fruits.
- Chia Seeds – Chia seeds are superfoods rich in minerals and vitamins that I love using in many recipes.
- Coconut Chips – fresh or toasted coconut chips work. I like the taste of toasted coconut so it’s my pick for the top layer.
Making The Crumble
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 process all the ingredients – 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.
Making The Jam
The filling is a super healthy jam, the sweetest fresh raspberry chia seed jam you’ll ever make with no refined sugar.
It only takes 5 minutes to cook the raspberry filling ingredients into a mixture that can be spread on the base.
Making The Crust
Finally, the coconut crust on top is crunchy, with a delicious taste of roasted coconut that goes so well with the raspberry jam.
Combine all the top crust ingredients in a large bowl and sprinkle it on top of the jam by crumbling the batter.
You can store your Raspberry Crumble Bars in the refrigerator for up to 3 days in an airtight container.
It’s also possible to freeze them for up to 3 months and reheat them in the oven for a few minutes or thaw them in the fridge overnight.
