What equipment do you need for white chocolate blackberry jam crumb bars?

The pastry cutter is certainly optional! You can just as easily use a fork or your fingers.

Helpful Tips:

Do I have to use the white chocolate in this recipe?

Nope! If you aren’t a fan of white chocolate or just want to dial down the sweetness of the recipe, you can just leave the white chocolate out. If you want to try a different flavor combo- I bet strawberry jam with milk or dark chocolate would be really good!

What if I don’t like blackberry jam? Can I use another jam for these crumb bars?

You can! Blueberry would also be great. You could use strawberry or raspberry as well. If you plan on using the white chocolate as the recipe suggests, then just make sure your jam will go with that flavor.

Can I freeze these blackberry jam crumb bars?

You technically can, but keep in mind the texture will change. The bars may get a little more soft as you defrost them, so the texture won’t be as firm as they are freshly baked. For storage, I suggest storing the bars on your counter in a container for a couple of days. Otherwise, store in the fridge for up to a week.

White Chocolate Blackberry Jam Crumb Bars

White chocolate and blackberry jam come together in these dessert bars with a delicious crumb crust and topping!
Print Recipe
Prep Time:20 mins
Cook Time:40 mins
Total Time:1 hr

Ingredients

For the Base and Topping:

  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup oats
  • tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp of butter cold and cut into small cubes

For the filling:

  • cup Blackberry jam or preserves
  • cup white chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 9×5 loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving a little overhang on the sides to help lift the bars out.
  • Make the base and topping: Combine the flour, oats, salt, baking powder, and sugar in a medium bowl and whisk together. Add the cold butter cubes to the bowl, and work them in using a fork, a pastry cutter, or your fingers until you have a crumbly texture.
  • Set aside about ⅓ of this mixture. Then take the remaining mixture and press it firmly into the bottom of your pan, to form a flat and even crust.
  • Carefully spread the jam on top of the crust in the pan. Sprinkle the white chocolate chips evenly on top of the jam. Take the remaining crumb mixture you had set aside, and evenly sprinkle the crumbs on top of the jam and white chocolate chips.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, until the top is golden brown. It will seem very soft! Let them cool completely to firm up before cutting into bars. Enjoy!
