These new gluten-free raspberry crumble bars were made in the spur of a moment, but are now my new favorite snack.
Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with raspberries. I could have them at breakfast lunch and dinner and still love them wholeheartedly.
The other day I was trying to come up with some raspberry and strawberry themed desserts in honor of Valentines Day when I decided I would just start baking.
I threw together my easy peasy raspberry jam and started on a base. That’s when I decided I would be making these gluten-free raspberry crumble bars.
They might seem daunting to make at first, but they are really easy to make, it just takes a bit of time and layers.
I have already decided that I will be trying this recipe with blueberry jam next week as well! So stay tuned 🙂
