Blackberry Coconut Oil Crumb Bars Recipe Notes:
Blackberry Coconut oil Crumb Bars are great just plain. Without that delicious cream cheese drizzle these are still a yummy blackberry treat; and much less fattening. Removing the cream cheese frosting will also take down the sugar content as well. But the cream cheese frosting does add a note of creamy sweet decadence, so do try it. It’s yummy!
To perfect the drizzle so it comes easily off a fork onto the bars; keep adding a little milk until you can pick the fork up and the drizzle falls off in a small, slow line. This will help you control the stream and reduce the large glops that happen when it’s too thick.
If the fork fails on you just load a sandwich bag with the cream cheese topping and cut off a tiny bottom corner. Squeeze the bag for better control of the drizzle. Play with it!
