These vegan and gluten free apricot crumble bars are a healthier take on one of our all-time favorite family recipes. They're buttery, slightly tart, just sweet enough, and they're also nut free.


Units Scale

Apricot Filling:

  • 1 lb. dried apricots, roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar


  • 1/2 cup nondairy butter, melted
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 1/4 cup gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F / 190˚C.
  2. Add dried apricots, water, and brown sugar to a pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes. 
  3. Add mixture to a blender and pulse until mostly smooth, but leave some texture.  
  4. Mix crust ingredients with your hands until it forms a crumbly mixture.
  5. Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. Press ⅔ of the crust mixture into the pan. Pour apricot mixture over the top of the crust and spread evenly, then top with the remaining ⅓ of the crust mixture. 
  6. Bake 32-36 minutes and let cool completely. Slice and enjoy!


Don't forget to spray your pan or lay down parchment paper inside of it.

Let the bars cool for 30 minutes before cutting into them.

Use your hands to mix up the crumble.

Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Look for dried apricots near the produce section, in the bulk foods section, or near other dried fruits at the supermarket.
