The Most Beautiful Bars
These might be the most beautiful bars I ever set eyes on. Anyone else out there prefer their desserts not so sweet? These bars are perfectly tart and a little bit sweet, meaning you can really taste ALL THE FLAVORS in every single bite.
So many times, desserts are wayyyyy over done with too much sugar. Once you hit a certain point with sugar, it doesn’t even taste good anymore IMO. This recipe is wholesome and healthy and legit the perfect fruity treat!
We really hope you guys make this recipe and LOVE it. It really is the perfect treat: it’s great for those who are gluten free or who really like fruity desserts! Oh, and if you’re feeling sassy, you can totally eat a bar for breakfast, too. They are THAT healthy.
This crumble crust is made with a cashew and oat base, and sweetened with:
- coconut oil
- maple syrup
- vanilla almond milk
- a little vanilla extract
The best part about this crumble crust is that it also doubles as the crumble topping for these bars. Two for one, people. This means that you’ll make one batch of the crumble crust, and separate it into portions for the crust and the topping. Then, you’re onto the filling:
Tripe Berry Filling
The filling is a mixture of three kinds of berries (strawberries, blueberries and raspberries!), honey, and a splash of orange juice. When you mix it all together into one recipe…it’s HEAVEN in bar form. And it’s easy to make:
You’ll start by placing all ingredients for the berry filling (except for the tapioca flour) into a medium sauce pan.
Turn the stovetop heat to high, and bring filling to a boil, making sure to stir often. Once boiling, turn the heat down to low, and let simmer for 10-15 minutes. Make sure to continue stirring during this time.
Finally, add tapioca flour to the berry mixture, and let it simmer for another 5-10 minutes, until the filling has thickened.
Toppings for Crumble Bars
We suggest topping these bars with coconut whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. YUM YUM YUM. What will you be topping your triple berry crumble bars with?!
