Cranberry Crumble Bars

Total Time:






Dietary Preference(s):



  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter, melted 1 stick butter
  • 398 ml can whole berry Cranberry sauce

How to Make It


Preheat the oven to 350F and line a square 8X8 baking pan with parchment paper and then grease the pan well with butter.


In a medium mixing bowl whisk together flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Stir in melted butter and mix until fully combined, creating a crumbly mixture.


Save 1 cup of the crumble crust mixture and mix with ¼ cup finely chopped pecans and set aside. Pour the rest of the mixture into the baking pan and press into an even, flat base layer with your hands.


Pour the cranberry sauce onto the crumble crust base layer in the pan and spread into an even layer.


Finally, sprinkle the 1 cup of crumble crust mixture you saved over the cranberry mixture in an even layer. Bake for 40-45 minutes until the crumble crust topping is set and the cranberry sauce might be bubbling around the edges.


Remove from the oven and let it completely cool in the pan or they will fall apart if not completely cooled before cutting. You can also place them in the fridge to help cool faster.


Once fully cooled, cut into 9 or 12 squares. 9. These will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days!
