Raspberry Crumb Bars

8 May

I can’t believe it is already time to post for the Leftover Club! May has come and the last week of school at WKU is wrapping up.

This month I was paired with Shashi from Runnin Srilankan. She sent me some delicious Pumpkin White Chocolate bars. Be sure to check out her blog!

My friend Elaina and I baked a recipe she had recently found on Pinterest: Raspberry Crumb Bars. Ryan said they were the perfect combo of soft and crunchy (his favorite type of dessert). I look forward to making this recipe again and experimenting with different types of jam.

Raspberry Crumb Bars

Recipe from Cooking Classy

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup rolled oats (old fashioned)
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup raspberry jam, seedless if preferred

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8 by 8-inch baking dish with aluminum foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang of foil on two sides. Grease foil.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in oats and brown sugar, and use clean fingertips as needed to break up brown sugar clumps. Add butter, and using fingertips, work butter into mixture until evenly moistened.
Add 2 cups of the oat mixture to the prepared baking dish and press into an even layer. Spread raspberry jam into an even layer over oat layer, coming within 1/4-inch of all edges. Sprinkle top evenly with remaining oat mixture, then slightly press into jam layer.
Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 34 – 38 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight container.

    Anything with a crumb topping is top of the line in my book!
