These lemon raspberry crumble bars are perfectly tart and lightly sweet with a delicious crumble topping.
I don’t have much to say about these crumble bars because this grandma stayed up until 10:30 last night and I’m suspicious that my brain turned into mush and decided not to work this morning. So lets just leave it at: these raspberry lemon crumble bars are DELIGHTFUL and you should probably make them while you drink tea and watch the Great British Baking Show. Lightly sweet, perfectly tart, and topped with the most dreamy crumble. I hope you’re as obsessed as I am!
To make these Lemon Raspberry Crumble Bars you will need:
- coconut sugar
- rolled oatmeal
- almond flour
- coconut oil
- maple syrup
- pinch of salt
A few notes:
1. I used raspberries to make these bars but they would be great with any number of berries! Blackberries or blueberries would also be great choices.

Lemon Raspberry Crumble Bars (vegan, gluten-free)
- September 8, 2019
- 1 hr
- Print this
- • 12 oz fresh raspberries
- • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- • 3 tsp cornstarch
- • 1 lemon: juice and zest
- 2 1/2 cups oats
- • 1 cup almond flour
- • 1/3 cup (melted) coconut oil or butter
- • 1/3 cup maple syrup
- • pinch of salt
- Step 1
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Step 2
- In a bowl, combine the raspberries, 1/2 the zest from the lemon, 1/2 the juice from the lemon, the coconut sugar, and cornstarch. As you stir, roughly chop the raspberries with your spoon to break them up slightly. Set aside while preparing crust.
- Step 3
- Line an 8×8 pan with parchment paper.
- Step 4
- Place the oats, almond flour, melted oil, maple syrup, pinch of salt, and remaining lemon zest in a food processor and pulse until a dough is formed.
- Step 5
- Reserve about 3/4 cup of the dough and press the remaining into the 8×8 pan.
- Step 6
- Spread the berry filling across the dough (spoon it on, don’t pour it on. You don’t want all the juice at the bottom of the bowl)
- Step 7
- Sprinkle the remaining dough on top of the berry filling.
- Step 8
- Bake for 40-45 minutes (until the crust is golden). Let cool completely before you cut into bars.
