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.

    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 :)
