Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

raspberry oatmeal bars

These Raspberry Oatmeal Bars should come with a loud warning.  They are hard to resist, and will certainly test your will power.  Something  magical happens when you combine oatmeal with sugar, flour & melted butter, and sandwich it between oozing raspberry jam.  As soon as they come out of the oven, these oatmeal bars fill your kitchen with a mouthwatering aroma.

My good friend, travel partner(from Dubai to Switzerland), and fabulous artist in MilanGisella Cianci has offered her brilliant talent to create this recipe illustration. Stay tuned for many beautiful surprises from my collaboration with the artist.

Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

Ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup of butter, melted
3/4 cup raspberry jam
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch of salt

Directions:

Pre heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 inch square pan. In a medium bowl combine the light brown sugar, all-purpose flour, rolled oats, baking soda, and salt. Mix in the melted butter until you have a well combined, yet crumbly mixture. Press half of the mixture onto the bottom of the pan. Spread the jam evenly throughout the surface of the mixture. Sprinkle the rest of the mixture on top of the jam and press lightly. Place in pre-heated oven for 30 to 40 min. Remove from the oven and let cool until cutting into bars, if you can wait that long!

Notes:

  • These Raspberry Oatmeal Bars taste better when they are shared with friends.
  • This recipe was given to me by my best friends mom (Thank you P.S.)
  • Personally, I enjoy them warm when they are fresh out of the oven, but they are just as glorious after they are cooled and cut into squares.
  • Try to save some for your friends, who will always come back for more of these magical oatmeal bars!
