Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

Thursday, July 13, 2017
These easy Raspberry Oatmeal Bars, are one of those easy-peasy recipes that's perfect when unexpected guests come for coffee.


One of the first cookie bars I ever made on my own as a child.


My dad and I would hardly leave a crumb for anyone else, they were just so delicious.


Raspberry was one of our all-time favorite flavors and these were quick to make in no time.


Here over 30 years later of making them, they're now a favorite of my grandkids.


It really is such an easy recipe and you can change the flavor jam to whatever you love.


I have done these with blueberry, cherry, and the favorite always comes back to raspberry.


You can't go wrong with these raspberry oatmeal bars. Come to take a look I promise you will love these and make them time and time again!

One of my first cookie bars I made as a child



I remember coming home from school and wanting a treat. Mom worked full time.


Back in the 1960s, mom always had a homemade from scratch cookie or bar in our wagon wheel cookie jar.


That was a huge inspiration to learn how to bake at an early age just watching how easy she made it look


At age 11 years old I got my first Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.

Easy Oatmeal Bars



I decided, my first venture in cooking would be these easy Raspberry Oatmeal Bar.


Little did I know way back then, they became a family favorite along with mine.


Dad always appreciated the fact that I wanted to learn how to bake from mom.


I loved trying new cookies, cakes, and foods.

Baking Became My New Hobby



These cookie bars are so easy


I would make them at least once a month.


Packing them in my own lunch was a given, but dear dad wanted them as well.


I would give him some to take to work too as he walked a long distance to his job, he worked for the phone company back then.

Crunchier?



Just bake them until very golden brown for a crunchier oatmeal bar.


They're not hard as a rock like store-bought but a little crunchier on top.








Raspberry Anything Is A Favorite



Dad and I loved raspberry in anything that was a dessert.


We would often share a raspberry pie together, I loved when he brought one home from the bakery back then.


I learned how to make a fresh raspberry pie, in later years that he loved.


Dad grew fresh raspberries and boysenberries in the garden and made the best homemade pies with them!

Tips


  • Use any kind of flour
  • Substitute 1 teaspoon molasses added to white sugar if you don't have brown sugar
  • Add more or less cinnamon to taste or even allspice in the crust
  • Pecans finely crushed can be added for a nutty crunch
  • Cooking these longer will make the crunchier oatmeal bar
  • Use 1/4 cup less jam if you want more crust/less jam filling
  • All-natural jams and sugar-free work fine
  • Only use seedless jam and any flavor works(IE strawberry, blueberry, cherry, and apple)
  • Use butter not margarine
  • omit the oil if using the other fine flours like oatmeal and almond flour
