Strawberry Crumble Bars. These bars have everything you’d want in a breakfast treat!
You get a melt in your mouth, buttery and tender shortbread, layered with fresh, sweet, juicy blueberries and then it’s sprinkled with more of that delicious, buttery cookie goodness
You’ve got a buttery, almost shortbread-like crust, covered with a nice thick layer of juicy, gooey strawberries, sprinkled with some more buttery deliciousness! I really don’t think these can get any better. They are so addictive and just melt in your mouth! Every bite is better than the last. If you don’t like strawberries, you can definitely substitute your favorite berry in its place, I just loooove strawberries so they are usually my first choice. I use strawberries in lots of my recipes, like my strawberry danish braid or strawberry muffins.
These would probably be delicious with blueberries too! Those are on my list to try in these bars next. 😉
My family went nuts over these and they were all gone by the very next day! These will definitely be a new weekend staple in my house.
If you are crunched for time and need an easy, delicious breakfast or dessert, these bars fit the bill!
Strawberry Breakfast Bars

- 4 cups strawberries sliced, fresh or frozen

- 4. Press half of dough into the prepared baking pan and place in preheated oven for 7 minutes.
- 5. While the crust is baking, stir together the sugar cornstarch and strawberries, they should be a little gooey - this is good!
- 6. Once the crust is done, pour the mixture over the warm crust and crumble the remaining dough over the strawberries. No need to make this absolutely perfect, it's nice when some strawberries peek through.
- 7. Optional* Sprinkle a tiny bit of cinnamon over the top of the crumble.
- 8. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until top starts to turn slightly golden.
- 9. Once done, take them out and let them cool for about 20 minutes in baking pan. Cut and serve!
