Jammy Raspberry Oat Bars
These homemade jammy raspberry oat bars are true sweet crumbly goodness! They are simple 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.
Spray an 8" X 11" 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.
