These super easy Gluten-Free Blackberry Crumb Bars are vegan, allergy-free, and loaded with sweet juicy blackberries! Made with a sweet dairy-free buttery crust and crumb topping, these blackberry bars are a healthy dessert recipe served warm like a slice of pie with melty ice cream and a fork or eaten cold with your hands!



For the Crust and Crumb:

For the Blackberries:


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the crust ingredients except the cold butter and mix together.
  3. Once mixed, add in the cold and cubed butter, kneading it in with your hands until the dough becomes sandy and hold shape if pressed.
  4. Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper*** and press about 2/3 of the dough into the bottom of the pan, about 1/4 inch thickness. Place the pressed dough in the fridge along with the bowl of extra crumble.
  5. In another bowl, combine the blackberries, starch, and sweetener. Toss together gently to coat the berries.
  6. Take the chilled dough out of the fridge and add the berry layer to the crust, leave a little room around the sides for less messy bars. Sprinkle the reserved crust dough over the top of the berry layer to create the crumble.
  7. Bake the bars in the preheated oven for 24-30 minutes.
  8. Remove and let the bars cool slightly before chilling completely in the fridge (keep them in the pan when chilling*).


*You can use more all-purpose instead of using the brown rice flour.

**If using frozen blackberries, thaw and drain first.

***I lined my pan by cutting two strips of parchment to cover all four sides of the pan.

****You can cover the chilling pan of bars with foil while in the fridge if leaving them overnight. If you do, cut a few slits in the foil to prevent moisture build-up.
