Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

1 Comment

I’m not a huge chocolate fan, but fruity desserts are some of my favorites. And there’s nothing like some oatmeal in a dessert to make it seem a little healthier…

If only, right??

These bars were a hit – the first pan disappeared in just a little over a day. They are definitely in my “keep” recipe pile.

Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup instant oatmeal
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup raspberry jam

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 8 inch square pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Combine brown sugar, flour, baking soda, and oatmeal. Rub in butter with your fingers until crumbly. Press  3/4 of mixture into bottom of pan.
  3. Warm jam up slightly in microwave. Spread over crumb layer in pan. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture on top, gently pressing into the jam.
  4. Bake for 35 minutes in oven, or until lightly browned. Let cool before cutting into squares.
