Plum crumble bars are the best treat ever. Well, that is my opinion. These bars can be a snack bar or a breakfast bar.
Moms are busy thinking about sending their children back to school, some of you may have already sent your little ones to school. I know we all want to make sure that our children are eating well. There are so many studies that point to the brain working better when it has been nourished with good food.
A couple of years ago, Big and I decided to plant a plum tree. It was the first fruit tree we have ever planted and we really babied it. I am so glad we did. We didn’t get many plums the first year but the second year the tree gave us a couple of baskets full of sweet oval shaped plums. I will be honest with you, I didn’t get to bake with any of the plums off our tree – Big ate them before I could get the chance.
So when I saw some juicy plums at the farmer’s market, I just knew that I would rush home and cook with them before Big could get a hold of them.
These bars are so easy to make. The ingredients are basic and most of you have them in your home. You can substitute the plums for most any fruit that is in season. One of the things I love about this recipe, other than the fantastic taste, is that the filling is not cooked. That saves you time in the kitchen and gets these sweet goodies on the plate and ready for serving that much quicker.
