Raspberry Crumble Bar that will help you curb those sweet cravings. They are the perfect go to breakfast bars when you are on the go. Prep them before hand keep them in a sealed container on the fridge and you got your self a sweet healthy breakfast bar to snack on.
You can use any type of jam for this recipe but my favourite combo is raspberries. If you want a more tropical flavour try this with frozen mango or pineapple. These bars are gluten free and made with just wholesome staple ingredients making them a great dessert alternative .
