Berry lovers, get ready! Today I’m sharing some easy and delicious MIXED BERRY CRUMBLE BARS that are bursting with four kinds of berries! All that berry goodness is sandwiched between a delicious crumble crust and topping.
There is something in the air when spring arrives, and I’m not just talking pollen! It is one of those invigorating times when nature makes things new, and we seem to follow her lead. While I like to do the whole spring cleaning thing, what I really like to do is switch up my recipes.
While I tend to bake with a lot of chocolate and cinnamon in the fall and winter, when spring comes I break out the fruit. From citrus to berries, there are so many great ingredients to work with. These berry crumble bars are packed with four different berries!
Berry Crumble Bars
When my friends at Bounty asked what I was making for spring, berries immediately came to mind. My family loves berries, especially my youngest. I love berries as well, though I’m not quite as fond of the mess they can make. Thankfully Bounty has that mess part covered. Thank you to Bounty for sponsoring this recipe for berry crumble bars.
Let’s face it, berries can be messy. They can really be messy in the hands of kids. Thankfully Bounty is a more absorbent paper towel, which means the roll lasts longer and you don’t need to use as much to tackle all of the messy fun that comes with spring baking, spring cleaning and outdoor projects.
I always have Bounty on hand to help contain and clean up the berry messes.I like to cut up my strawberries and blackberries when I make this recipe. I learned a while ago that I quickly stained my cutting boards when cutting up berries. I put a stop to that by using a Bounty paper towel over my cutting board when slicing berries.
Easy clean up!
This recipe is so simple and delicious. While I used four types of berries, you can mix and match with what you have on hand. As long as you have four cups of berries, in any combo, you’re in good shape.
