Meal prep tips for Cranberry Crumb Dessert Bars

  • Bring the butter to room temperature so that it is easier to cream together with the sugar
  • You can use either dried fruit or fresh cranberries with this recipe
  • Finely chop the walnuts so that they are easier to fold into the batter and no one gets a big chunk of walnut in their bite
  • Cool the crumb bar before trying to cut them
  • You can also freeze them and reheat them when you are ready to enjoy them
