Sweet, crumbly, and deliciously buttery, you just can’t say no.

These blueberry crumb bars are best when they’re freshly baked and still warm. Enjoy a slice on its own or with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.

That said, they’re just as scrumptious the next day – if they last that long, that is.

5. Almond Cherry Bars

Looking for an elegant dessert you can have ready in under an hour? These almond cherry bars are just what you need.

Not only do they taste delicious, but they also look absolutely fantastic.

A beautiful layer of sliced red cherries separates a buttery crumb.

Decorate these stunning treats with a white almond glaze and a handful of sliced almonds. Simply gorgeous.

Bursting with citrus flavor, they’re bright, zesty, and lip-smackingly delish.

Serve these light treats at your next dinner party or family gathering, and they’ll disappear in a flash!

The best part about these apple crisp bars is that you can enjoy them any way you like.

Hot, cold, with ice cream or whipped cream – you name it. You can even enjoy a slice for breakfast. 

You may be tempted to reach for the boxed apple crisp topping, but don’t! Homemade apple crisp makes all the difference.

You’ll melt into dessert heaven with one bite of these crumbly, sweet, and fruity bars. 

9. Apple Streusel Bars

Soft, moist, and chock full of apples, these apple streusel bars are to die for. Seriously, they’re that good. 

These bars have the perfect balance of everything, so you might struggle not to eat the whole pan!

Spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves, every bite is sensational. Those tender apples simply melt in your mouth. 

10. Banana Bars

Need a mid-afternoon pick-me-up? These banana bars with chocolate chips are the ultimate sweet treat. 

Bananas naturally sweeten these bars, so you can feel slightly less guilty when tucking into one or two (or three).

They travel super well, too. Making them perfect for potlucks, BBQs, and kid’s lunch boxes.

My favorite way to eat these goodies is with a hot coffee. Delish! 

11. Oats and Dried Fruit Bars

Let’s be honest, cereal can get a little boring. So, treat yourself to one of these oats and dried fruit bars instead of your everyday breakfast.

They taste much better and have less sugar and fat than your typical breakfast favorites.

They’re also super easy to whip up. You can make 18 bars in just 30 minutes.

12. Frosted Banana Bars

What could possibly be better than a big slice of banana bread? These frosted banana bars, of course! 

Moist, sweet, and smothered in a cream cheese frosting, they’re stunningly tasty. 

And they’re absolutely perfect for sharing.

Simply bake a tray, cover in frosting, and cut into slices. Make sure you save yourself a piece because they’ll be gone in a flash!

13. Fresh Apricot Bar

Now, these fresh apricot bars are something special.

Briefly cook apricots and puree them. Spread the jam over a buttery crust and top with the remaining crust mixture.

Finally, pop the tray in the oven, and there you go!

This is a great recipe to use during apricot season. But if you don’t have fresh apricots on hand, you can always use apricot jam. 

14. Pineapple Bars

Dreaming of a beach somewhere? Try these pineapple bars and get ready to float away.

Made with fresh or canned pineapple, they’re guaranteed to be a hit with everyone who tastes them.

The final touch is to drizzle a luscious coconut icing. Yum!

15. Mango Crumb Bars

These mango crumb bars always go down a treat in my house. They’re moist, gooey, and oh-so-delicious!

Mango is already as sweet as candy, so it’s the perfect dessert ingredient. Just make sure your mangos are super ripe before you start baking.

A lovely, vivid orange, these sweet treats taste as good as they look. You can’t help but get stuck in.

You can use whatever berries you like. I highly recommend strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries. 

Hot tip: use a little lemon to brighten the berry flavor. 

19. Apple Kuchen Bars

Craving something sweet? These apple kuchen bars are loaded with sweet, buttery goodness and tart-tender apples.

“Kuchen” is actually German for cake. And this recipe has all the traditional cake flavors but with the texture of a crumbly cookie.

It’s pure magic on the senses. 

Three enticing layers: a shortbread crumb, slices of apples and cinnamon, and a sugar topping. It’s mouthwatering for sure. 

20. Raspberry Almond Linzer Shortbread Bars

These raspberry almond Linzer shortbread bars have all the flavors of traditional Linzer cookies but in easy-to-make bar form.

A shortbread crust works as the base. They’re then smothered in raspberry jam and topped with slivered almonds.

Of course, you can use any jam you like. Strawberry jam, apricot jam, or even blueberry jam are great options.

It all tastes delicious!

21. Orange Bars

If you’re an orange lover like me, you’ll adore these orange bars. They’re seriously sweet and packed full of citrusy flavor.

These orange bars are one of my favorite sweet treats to eat during the summer months.

Fresh orange juice pairs with orange zest to create a wonderful flavor. And that’s all amplified by a rich butter crust. Yum!

Plus, there’s minimal clean-up. So, you can enjoy these delicious treats without the mess that comes with baking.

They’re perfect for when you’re on the go, need a lunch box treat, or whenever you’re feeling hungry. 

24. Salted Caramel Apple Pie Bars

These salted caramel apple pie bars taste just like apple pie but are way easier to make. 

Featuring a shortbread crust, spiced apple filling, streusel topping, and homemade salted caramel, they’re beyond scrumptious.

Cozy, comforting, and simply irresistible, the next time an apple pie craving hits, try out these salted caramel apple pie bars instead.

25. Strawberry-Lime Cheesecake Bars

Cheesecake has to be the queen of decadent desserts. And these strawberry lime cheesecake bars are definitely fit for royalty.

A delicious and easy homemade flour crust is layered with strawberry preserve jam and topped with a creamy layer of lime cheesecake. 

The sharp citrus flavor of the lime pairs beautifully with the sweet strawberry jam. Just one bite is all it takes for you to become addicted.
