Jam Almond Crumb Bars-use your favorite jam to make these sweet crumbly almond bars! They are perfect for brown bag lunches, picnics, or every day dessert!
Remember that time when I made homemade Blackberry Chia Seed Jam? Yeah, I am totally domestic. I can’t sew on a button, but I can make a killer batch of jam:) And you can too, because it is super easy! There is no canning involved, but let’s pretend it is hard to make so I can feel like Martha Stewart.
Anyways, I had a jar of my special homemade Blackberry Chia Seed Jam in the fridge and decided it would be fun to make a treat with it. Of course, I am always thinking about dessert:) I used my blackberry jam to make Jam Almond Crumb Bars and I am so glad I did because they are a real treat!
I will warn you up front, these bars are pretty addicting. I tried to make them a little healthier by using whole wheat flour, coconut oil, and my Blackberry Chia Seed Jam. The bars also have almonds which are a good source of healthy fats, so I am pretty sure you can eat these for breakfast and feel ok about it. I did:)
The bars have three layers: a sweet crust, jam center, and an almond crumb topping.
Don’t worry, the bars aren’t complicated to make. The three layers come together in no time! You could probably them in your sleep!
I loved using my Blackberry Chia Seed Jam, but feel free to use your favorite jam. Raspberry, strawberry, or apricot would be tasty too!
I know I am going to be making these bars again and again! I love the crumble almond topping paired with the sweet jam!
Jam Almond Crumb Bars are perfect for brown bag lunches, picnics, every day dessert…or even breakfast! The jam counts as a serving of fruit, right? 🙂 Enjoy!
