We have made this healthy breakfast vegan berry oat crumble bars recipe quite a few times already now. These berry crumble bars tend to disappear in one sitting between my 3 kids and myself! We love having them for our afternoon snack and I plan on making them nut-free (using tahini or sunflower seeds butter) for school morning snacks when school will be restarting! (Hopefully very soon!!)
You can swap the raspberries for blueberries, blackberrries or strawberries or use chia jam. You can also swap the seeds for whatever seeds or nuts you have in your pantry. The key is to make the dough sticky enough and press it down very well into the tin before baking. Also leaving it to cool down helps in making it less crumbly.
These vegan berry oat crumble bars can be a bit crumbly so eat outside or on a table for kids if you are a mum who doesn’t like mess!

This is a very healthy recipe for vegan crumble bars as it is oil free and only uses peanut butter to make it stick. It is packed with healthy omega-3 seeds such as chia seeds and is sweet but low sugar so I really like making this vegan crumble bar recipe for my three children.
I have made them often for our afternoon treat but they can also make a good breakfast option or snack on the go. I think I will make them next time we have to head somewhere on the road.
