These deliciously buttery rhubarb crumble bars are the perfect fruity dessert or snack for those who are looking for a sweet treat that has an element of tartness to it.
I really like eating seasonally so when a family member gave me lots of rhubarb he had grown I knew I had to incorporate it into some recipes! This is the third variation of crumble bar I have on my website and I am yet to find a flavour they don’t work with! These bars give a nod to the classic crumble but make an ideal breakfast or on the go snack due to them travelling well. These bars are made using ‘healthy’ ingredients and are refined sugar free making them a more nutrient dense option to other desserts.
I use coconut sugar to make these bars, however, I have also made them using light brown sugar and they worked equally as well.
For this recipe you will need to use butter from a hard block rather than a spread. Ensure that you allow these bars to cool fully before removing them from the tray or slicing into them otherwise you risk them falling apart. I use a lined 8″ x 8″ brownie tray for these and it results in the perfect thin bake that I then cut into nine individual squares. Slice into six if you would prefer a larger portion.
I use my Stewed Rhubarb with Ginger recipe to make these bars. It only takes twenty minutes to make, however, you will need to allow it to cool completely before using it in this dessert. If you want to use a different recipe for stewed rhubarb you can, however, this one has been tried and tested. I have included the ingredients and method for the stewed rhubarb below, however, it may be helpful to read through the separate recipe for tips not noted here.
If you enjoy these rhubarb crumble bars you may also enjoy my Apple & Cinnamon Crumble Bars or my Blackberry Crumble Bars. These are best eaten within two days, however, will last up to a week in an airtight container. If you like this recipe you may also want to try my Healthy Apple & Rhubarb Crumble.
