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
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 8 inch square pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
- 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.
- Warm jam up slightly in microwave. Spread over crumb layer in pan. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture on top, gently pressing into the jam.
- Bake for 35 minutes in oven, or until lightly browned. Let cool before cutting into squares.
