BERRY PROTEIN CRUMBLE.

Berry & Banana Protein Squares.


Let me ask you a question: What do you get when you combine fruit, protein and granola? An AMAZING breakfast, mid-morning snack or dessert that tastes like a decadent sweet treat but is actually super healthy!

You heard it here first, these berry and banana squares are not only tasty, but really good for you!*


Unlike traditional crumble toppings, this recipe doesn’t require butter or sugar yet it still leaves you with glorious crunchy clusters. The topping is very similar to the base in that it uses oats and berry protein, but I wanted to make sure the topping was the star of the show!


Once you’ve prepped your base and the topping, you can focus on the middle.

Similar to a traditional pie filling, I defrosted some raspberries, added cinnamon, sweetener and a touch of cornflour. Of course adding cornflour is optional, but I find it helps make everything a little bit gooeyer!

TOP TIP: if you want to make this recipe gluten free, I’d suggest using a mix of almond four, quinoa flour and oats (providing they’re GF of course!) it adds an extra layer of flavour, texture and reduces the amount of oats which I know can affect those who are gluten intolerant.


These squares are high in:

  • Protein
  • Healthy Fats
  • Fibre
  • & most importantly, FLAVOUR!

Next time you’re thinking of making a traditional crumble, why not whip up a batch of these crumble squares! They’ll satisfy that sweet craving, are easier to make and are a little bit healthier. What’s not to like?!
