Peach Crumble Bars

Now that Labor Day has come and gone, it’s time to transition into Fall. Even though I probably won’t cool down here (in Texas) until mid-October, I’m just going pretend it feels like fall. With that in mind, let the fall baking begin!

Every year I love to make peach crisp and apple crisp. There’s just something about it that screams fall. To change things up, I decided to create a portable version that does anything but skimp on the crust! It’s full of brown sugar and buttery goodness! And better yet, it can be made all year long because it uses peach preserves. No more having to worry about peaches being in season! All you need to do top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce and you’re good to go!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Set aside.-135
