Strawberry  Crumble Bars

This is one of  my favorite crumb bars recipe, and it’s easily adaptable with whatever type of fruit you have on hand. The almond flour and the coconut flour in the dough really add that extra flavor and texture.

They’re so easy to make and I love  the streusel crumb topping. They are delicious and  the recipe allows for flavor changes or substitutions if so desired.

The strawberries in these bars are show cased perfectly along side the tender crumbs of the crust and topping.

These bars are gluten free. You can substitute your favorite flour.


Strawberry  Crumble Bars


  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (or gluten free rolled oats)
  • ½ cup almond meal
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp. cane sugar
  • ¼ tsp. lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 dates
  • 4 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 cup fresh fresh strawberries
  • 2 tsp. corn starch or arrowroot
  • 3 tsp. agave or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8×8 pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine oats, almond meal and coconut flour. Pulse until oats are fully ground about one minute.
  3. Add sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract to the mixture and pulse until well combined. Leaving the food processor running, add one date at a time through the shoot until all dates have been fully incorporated and the mixture begins to come together.
  4. Add coconut oil and blend for about 30 seconds.
  5. Transfer half of the mixture to the prepared pan and press down firmly to evenly distribute the crust.
  6. In a medium bowl, add strawberries, corn starch, agave and vanilla extract. Toss well.
  7. Fold the fruit mixture on top of the crust and distribute it evenly.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining crust mixture on top of the fruit and gently press down to cover the fruits
  9. Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes, until the top begins to brown. Remove from oven and cool on a rack.

    Do you melt the coconut oil or do your use it in its “solid” form?

  3. Allie says:

    Hi, are the dates fresh, or dried?

  4. Jennifer says:

    I have a nut allergy. Can I use something besides almond meal?

  5. Stephanie says:

    Hi, these look delicious. Can you use another type of oil or does coconut work best?
