Raspberry Bars-Oat Crumble Recipe
These homemade Raspberry Bars are truly sweet, crumbly goodness! They are easy to make and utilize fresh raspberries for the jam. Extra thick whole-grain oats give them a fantastic texture, and organic palm sugar is used as the sweetening agent. They are perfect for eating as a snack, breakfast, or with vanilla ice cream for a heavenly dessert.
- 2 pints fresh raspberries
- ½ lemon, juiced
- ⅓ cup palm sugar
- 2 tbsp pectin
- 1 ½ cups AP flour
- 1 ½ cups extra-thick rolled oats
- ¾ cup palm sugar
- 1 tsp Kosher salt
- 12 tbsp (1 ½ sticks) unsalted butter, melted
- ¼ cup toasted coconut granola
- Cooking spray for coating the pan
Combine the raspberries, lemon, and palm sugar in a medium saucepot and place over moderate heat.
Bring mixture to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Cook for 7-10 minutes until the berries have broken down and the mixture has thickened.
Add the pectin and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes to dissolve.
Allow to cool and reserve for the oat mixture.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Grease an 9" X 13" baking dish and line with parchment paper.
Combine the flour, oats, palm sugar, salt, and butter in a large mixing bowl. The texture should resemble a wet, crumbly sand.
Press ¾ of this mixture into the baking dish and create a uniformly flat surface.
Spread the raspberry jam in one even layer over the oat mixture, leaving a 2-centimeter perimeter from the edge of the pan.
Combine the remaining oat mixture with the coconut oat granola and sprinkle over the raspberry jam.
Bake in the oven for 25-30minutes until the top is golden brown and the bars have set.
