I love crumb bars. They’re so easy to make and I’m crazy over the streusel crumb topping. Anytime I see crumb toppings on a dessert, I immediately want to shove the dessert in my face and then I realize it’s so unlady-like but who’s judging, right? I know everyone loves a good crumb topping every now and then especially when the fruity center is smushed in the middle.

With all the fabulous recipes I’ve seen all over the web, it’s hard to miss that it’s strawberry season. With strawberry season, it seems that the perfect pairing with strawberry is rhubarb. The two together equals a happy marriage of flavor. To me, it’s such a summery combination. It reminds me that summer is right around the corner and I love summer and sunshine!

The strawberry rhubarb filling in this dessert came from one of my purchases when I was at a Tastefully Simple party. They had the strawberry rhubarb spread passed around and I seriously could not stop eating it. It was fantastic. I bought 3 jars of it. I gave two away, one to a coworker and one to Jason’s parents. I had my jar sitting in the fridge for quite sometime and I’m so glad I unintentionally saved it for this. No joke, I ate 3/4 of the pan. Jason probably only had two bars, me? I had this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It was one of the most addicting desserts I’ve ever made.

I loved how soft and buttery the bars were. Now in addition to these bars, you see ramekins. I had leftover crust and topping so I made them into individual crumbles and they were just as good!

  • Preheat oven to 350 °F (177 °C) and grease a 11 x 7" baking pan. Set aside.
  • In a food processor, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, butter, baking soda, salt, and vanilla until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Set aside about 1 1/2 cups (192g) of the crumb mixture. Pour remaining crumb mixture to the bottom of the prepared pan and spread evenly. Press the crumb mixture down.
  • Using an offset spatula, spread the fruit filling in an even coat on top of the crumb crust. Then with the reserved crumb mixture, crumble it on top of the fruit filling.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before slicing.
  • To make these in ramekins, just follow the steps above. Press the crumb mixture into the ramekins then put the filling in and use a spoon to spread it around. Crumble the rest of the crumbs on top. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.

  1. These bars look gorgeous! You’re right about it being strawberry season. I’ve gone twice now to pick strawberries and I have tons of them. Two ice creams in the works and of course dessert. I may have to make your crumb bars, too!

  2. I love this short ingredient list!! I just may “accidentally” make these this morning!

  3. I seriously have a ton of homemade strawberry rhubarb jam, and I think this would be a great way to use some of it up!!

  4. Rhubarb is one of my favorite spring treats and sadly I haven’t found any yet this year. I need to find some soon! Your crumb bars look heavenly :)

  5. More things need streusel toppings, seriously WHY isn’t it an option on everything I eat?

  6. I love all the rhubarb I’m seeing lately – I’ve got to get my hands on some, too! These bars look so great, Julie! Good for breakfast or dessert. Thanks for sharing. Also, I’m having a ChicWrap giveaway today that you should enter!

  7. Oh I love crumb bars too. And the strawberries are so stinking good already this year. Put some crumbly topping on anything and I ‘m all about it. Love this!

  8. Definitely not unladylike to shove crumb desserts in your face in my opinion. I’m with you all way. Great combination of flavours.
