Raspberry bars are a simple summer treat excellent for gatherings! These tasty hand-held treats are great for picnics and outdoor celebrations.


– 1½ cups all-purpose flour (180g) – ½ teaspoon baking soda – ½ teaspoon salt – 1½ cups rolled oats (178g) – ¾ cup packed light brown sugar (165g) – ¾ cup unsalted butter softened (170g) – 1 cup seedless raspberry jam (120g)


Heat the oven to 350°F. Leave a 2-inch overhang on all four edges of an 8-inch square baking pan before foiling. Add butter or nonstick cooking spray on foil.

Step 1

In a large basin, mix flour, baking soda, salt, rolled oats, and light brown sugar. Blend well. 

Step 2

Using a pastry blender or fork, chop the butter into the flour mixture until it is crumbly and holds together when squeezed.

Step 3

Evenly press two-thirds of the crumb mixture into the prepared pan. Place jam evenly on top, leaving a ½-inch border on both sides.

Step 4

Scatter the remaining crumb mix over top. Gently press it into the jam. Bake for 35 minutes until crumble is golden brown and jam is bubbling. 

Step 5

 The bars should cool completely in the pan for about 1½ hours. Lift foil to remove from pan. Slice the block into 16 squares without foil.
