What is in the berry crumble bars?

You wouldn’t believe how simple these delicious treat bars are to make. They only require six ingredients and they’re dairy free!

You will need 375g fine oatmeal, 135g self-raising flour, 180g sugar, 1.5 teaspoons of ground cinnamon and 120g coconut oil.

For the berry filling, they use blueberries. However, we think you can customise your bars with any berry or fruit of your choice – we think raspberries or stewed plums would make a great addition!
