Description

Another Christmas recipe – I no it’s early but I try and eat as much mince meat as I can in the run up to Christmas I love it so much! Quite a few shops and cafes stock these Christmas crumble bars some are gluten and dairy free (Costa) and others aren’t. Earlier in the year I made a Rhubarb crumble bar so I’ve used that as the basic recipe and given it a Christmas feel. I actually used a rum and raisin mince meat I bought in Lidl that was naturally gluten and dairy free – very tasty.

Enjoy!
