Raisin Mumbles

Tam D


When I first found this recipe I thought, what a weird name! Then I made them, and I understood completely: mumble is what you do when you bite into these delicious bars! I walked around my kitchen yumming that these simple ingredients could produce such a delicious treat.
So much more than a bar, mumbles have a buttery bar base, fruit filling, and a crumble top. If you haven't tried them, it's a must!

How to Make Raisin Mumbles


  1. Combine filling ingredients in 3 qt. saucepan. Over medium heat, cook until thickened. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Mix crumb ingredients together until well-combined, and evenly crumbly.
  3. Spread half the crumb mixture in the bottom of a 9X13" baking dish, which has been prepared with food release spray.
    Press lightly.
  4. Pour raisin mixture evenly over the crumb crust.
  5. Spread remaining crumb mixture over the raising layer. Pat down gently but firmly.
  6. Bake at 400* for 20 minutes.

    Cool and cut.
  7. NOTES: I like my bars a little thicker sometimes, so I've also made this in an 11x7" baking dish, and a little extra time in the oven.

    This recipe is easily gluten free, by substituting gluten free flour.
    Also try it with a fourth to a third coconut flour, for added nutrition, fiber, and yumminess :)
