Berry Crumble Bars 🍓💜🍓💜🍓
Berry season is on full effect and honestly they might be my fave fruit right now! 🍓♥️
I made these mixed berry crumble bars and omg the gooey berry filling is to die for!! 😍 the crust (which is delicious on its own!) is also gluten free, dairy free, full of fiber and has protein + healthy fats! ✨🎉
Berries are full of antioxidants, anti aging phytonutrients, have been shown to improve memory, skin and reduce your risk of cancer! 💕☀️ They are super high in fiber and are one of the lowest sugar fruits 🍌 🍎 🍉
I’ve been adding them to Greek yogurt to make Froyo 🍨 you can add them to salads 🥗 or throw into pancakes 🥞 or muffins for a delicious treat!!
