Raspberry Crumb Bars

A raspberry crumb bar with a oat, butter and flour crust filled with delicious raspberry jam and then topped off with more of the best oatmeal topping..To me the topping is the best part. It has a slight crisp and soft texture, with just enough raspberry jam in the center. A delicious and healthy bar that everyone will love. Easy to make and I am sure you have all of the ingredients in your pantry to make these yummy bars..

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup rolled oats (old fashioned)
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup raspberry jam, seedless if preferred
  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8 by 8-inch baking dish with aluminum foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang of foil on two sides. Grease foil with cooking spray.
  • 2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in oats and brown sugar, and use clean fingertips as needed to break up brown sugar clumps. Add butter, use your fingertips work butter into mixture until evenly moistened.
  • 3. Add 2 cups of the oat mixture to the prepared baking dish and press into an even layer. Spread raspberry jam into an even layer with a spoon over oat layer, coming within 1/4-inch of all edges. Sprinkle top evenly with remaining oat mixture, then slightly press down into jam layer.
  • 4. Bake until golden brown, about 33- 38 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely then cut into squares. Store in an airtight container.
