I like pretty much anything with crumble in the title.
These remind me of the peanut butter jelly filled bars my mom used to make… they are just a little more health focused and full of nutrients!! That’s right baby… lots of antioxidants, fiber, protein, and lot’s of love!
Let’s do this!
Inspired by this recipe posted by Detoxinista!
Almond Butter Bars with Fruit Filling

1 cup sprouted oatmeal –
1 cup almond butter (make your own!)
1/2 cup organic shaved coconut (unsulfered and unsweetened)
2 generous tablespoons of coconut oil (melt on low for a few minutes if hard)
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp hemp seeds
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp raw and unfiltered honey
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

If you are inclined to make your own fruit spread, visit the original recipe here 🙂 OR select a organic and no sugar added fruit spread at your local grocer… here is one of my favorite brands 🙂
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Place oatmeal in food processor. Turn on high for about 30-45 seconds to create a flour like texture.
- Add in remaining ingredients and mix until well blended and dough sticks together
- Line glass container with unbleached parchment paper. Press dough onto parchment paper, lining the bottom of the dish.
- Place in oven for 10 minutes
- While crust is baking, prepare the crumbly topping by combining the walnuts, coconut, maple syrup, coconut oil, sea salt and almond extract in a food processor, and process until sticky and crumbly, but still coarse in texture.
- Arrange the bars by spreading the fruit filling over the crust, then spreading the crumbly topping over the raspberry layer. Return to the oven for 15 minutes at 350 degtees, or until the topping is lightly golden.
- Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes to set. Serve and enjoy!
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
The first time I made this the kids LOVED it! They didn’t even realize how healthy it really is. I love creatingh “treats” that don’t make me feel like I’m spoon feeding my kids sugar.
