So I must admit when my niece sent me this gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free oatmeal crumble bars recipe my first reaction was, “Where’s the taste!?” I figured it must be fairly tasteless without all the “good stuff” I normally find in my baked goods. How could a baked good devoid of regular flour, dairy and eggs be tasty?

Well, I am happy to report these are outstanding!!

As I mentioned last week, my niece used to sell baked goods at local farmers markets, fairs, etc. My sister has celiac disease (she was diagnosed 7-8 years ago), so my niece was used to making gluten-free recipes and desserts. She frequently sold gluten-free at these markets (but could not guarantee gluten-free as it was not a gluten-free commercial kitchen where she baked). This recipe originally was a bit different and contained an egg white. At one of the local farmer’s markets, there was a little girl who always looked longingly at my niece’s baked goods, but the little girl has a lot of allergies, including eggs. So, my niece reworked this recipe (and reworked it and reworked it) so that it was not only gluten-free but egg-free and dairy-free as well. This is the finished product she sold for years.

Notes:

• Because there is not a lot of binder in this recipe, cool the bars completely before you attempt to cut them.

• You can use fruit other than the strawberries used in these photos. These are “fruit” bars, so strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cherries, peaches, nectarines, apples, etc are all good fruit filling choices.

• If you use cherries as your fruit, add 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg to the crust.

• If you use peaches as your fruit, add 1/3 cup light brown sugar to the crust.

• If you use apples as your fruit, add ½ teaspoon of cinnamon to the fruit mixture, and one teaspoon of cinnamon to the crust.

• The recipe is made using an 8″x8″ baking pan. If using a 9″x9″ baking pan, bake for 40 minutes instead of the listed 45 minutes.

  1. The bars look yummy and they’re a great way of using up fresh fruit

  2. Wow, those look amazing, Ann! I love that they are basically vegan, too (I’m just gonna use vegan butter). Thanks for the great recipe 🙂

    *Maisy

    • Maisy, does vegan butter spread? If so, that would be something to look out for (Crisco spreads less than regular butter).
