Raspberry Crumble Bars Recipe

A soft and chewy cookie-like base topped with fresh raspberries and topped with a rich, buttery crumble- This raspberry crumble bar recipe is a game-changer! 

It’s no secret I’ve been LOVING all the berries lately and adding them in everything! From breakfast bakes to chocolate chip cookies, berries have been finding their way in almost everything.

Whether you call them crumb bars, streusel bars or crumble squares, they are all the same thing- Addictive and Delicious. 

After receiving a few pints of fresh raspberries, I knew I had to find a way to use them up before they began to spoil. The beauty of raspberries (besides being incredibly delicious and addictive) is that they are also keto-friendly.

Are Raspberries Keto Friendly and Low Carb? 

I’ve been wanting to share more fruit recipes on here but had to be creative in order to keep them low carb, keto and sugar free.

Raspberries are one of the few fruits that are suitable on a ketogenic and low carb diet.

Per 100 gram serving (approximately 1 cup) of fresh raspberries, there a mere 5 grams of net carbs.

This entire recipe only uses 1 full cup of raspberries, so the net carb count for the entire recipe is even less than that!

How to make the BEST healthy raspberry crumble bars

Prepare the base of your crumble bars

Whether you choose to make the vegan oatmeal (oat) option or the paleo/keto option, you need to first prepare the thick base. 

Combine your wet and dry ingredients together, before transferring to a lined pan with parchment paper.

Prepare your crumble topping

Mix together your ingredients for the crumble topping. The crumb topping is sugar free and grain free, so can be used for both options. 

Cover your bars with the raspberries and the crumble topping

In an even layer, cover your bars with the raspberries, evenly spaced apart. Evenly distribute spoonfuls of the crumble topping over and in between the raspberries.

Bake your crumble bars 

Bake your crumble bars for 20-25 minutes, or until the center has firmed up and the crumble has reached a golden-brown color.

Can you use fresh or frozen raspberries?

Using either fresh or frozen raspberries work! 

If you opt to use frozen raspberries, be sure to thaw them out completely. Once thawed, use a paper towel to soak up any excess moisture.

Can you substitute the raspberries for raspberry preserves or raspberry jam?

Substituting the fresh raspberries for raspberry jam/preserves is perfectly fine.

To keep it low carb and sugar free, I recommend using this sugar free raspberry jam. Another other no added sugar raspberry preserves will also be fine.

If you do use this, use 1/2 a cup, and only add more as needed.

How to store Raspberry Crumble Bars

Raspberry crumble bars with fresh raspberries should be stored in the fridge. This will ensure they remain fresh and can be kept fresh for up to 1 week.

Raspberry crumb bars are also freezer friendly and will keep well frozen for up to 2 months.

  1. I just made these for the third time. They are our fave keto dessert! The first time I made it, the crumble was actually crumbly, like the topping for an apple crisp. The second and third times, however, it was more like dough. It did not affect the taste, but the look and texture. Can you help me trouble shoot this? Thanks! And keep the great recipes coming! 🙂
