Gluten Free Raspberry Streusel Bars
In one of the cookbooks in my library is a gorgeous picture of Raspberry Streusel Bars. That photo taunts me every time I flip through the pages of this particular book. Today I decided it was time to put together my own recipe.
I was delighted when they turned out not only pretty, but also incredibly good.
Please note: A friend of mine tried this recipe with xylitol and found the bars turned out too moist. I'll be working to figure out how to fix this. To make these sugar free: Use Xylitol in the crust portion of the recipe. Then sweeten the raspberry filling with stevia to taste. Then sprinkle 1 packet of Stevie in with the topping instead of granulated sugar. This is all to taste (Be Brave! You can do it . Taste testing as you cook/ bake is the best and only want to go!)
Also I would like to note that any berry variety will work in this recipe. Also, feel free to add in some extra flavor oomph. For example alcohol could be added to the fruit filling. Grand Marnier, Rum, or Amaretto would taste great. (Add just a TBS or so if you do). I also often like to add in lemon or orange zest (or just some lemon juice).
