Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Crumble Bars

Buttery, crumbly comfort in an oatmeal cookie bar. Raspberry jam (or your preferred flavor) layers in luscious sweetness and tartness. Super quick and easy, using basic pantry ingredients. Divine with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and the perfect anytime treat!


Sometimes, weeknights call for a comforting dessert made with love. While my sweet tooth usually tends towards chocolate, a change of pace is fun once springtime hits! The sun is shining, fresh berries are back in the markets, and a warm dessert on the back porch after a busy day truly hits the spot.

The wonderful thing about these one-bowl raspberry bars is, you can make them year-round. No fresh berries required! The main ingredients in these mouthwatering crumble bars are: flour, sugar, butter, oatmeal, vanilla, salt, and raspberry preserves – or your favorite fruit preserve flavor. That’s it!

Do you have 10 minutes and a handful of basic pantry ingredients? I thought so.

Let me the surprisingly simple process with you!
