Raspberry Filled Oat bars on parchment paper on top of wood serving platter

Reader beware! These Raspberry Oat Squares are addictive and every time you pass them on the counter you WILL want to reach for another one. It’s like they are eyeing you and they beckon you over for another bite of deliciousness.

I honestly have no idea what makes these so delectable…maybe its the raspberry filling mixed with the baked oats. These bars are definitely great for breakfast, a snack, an afternoon treat. I don’t make them often but when I do they are gone in a snap.


BAKING TIPS

It always helps me out to have everything measured and poured before diving into the making process, especially with kids.

First we will whip the butter and brown sugar until smooth then Edd in our egg, and Vanilla.

Then we will beat in the flour and fold in the oats and almonds until everything is incorporated.

Take 1 cup out of the dough mix and set aside. Press the rest of the dough into the pan and pour the raspberry jam on top in an even layer. Crumble the rest of the dough onto the raspberry layer and bake!

Once the bars are done make sure they cool in the pan. If you try and lift it out before they are cool they will break apart. Once they are cool pull them out by the tin foil edges and slice into squares with a nice sharp knife. Enjoy!
