Raspberry Oat-Crumb Bars!

Time to bake something sweet!
You'll need:

2 sticks unsalted butter + a little to butter baking pan (slightly softened)
2 & 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1 egg
1 cup raspberry preserves

(Preheat oven to 350)
Add everything to a bowl except the raspberry preserves.
Use a hand mixer on low to combine everything to a crumble-like consistency.  Use a measuring cup and remove 2 cups of this mixture and set aside - this will be for the topping.
Butter an 8-inch square baking dish.
Press an even layer of the "crumble dough" into the pan - It's best to make a tiny crust around the edge so that when you add the raspberry preserves, there is a border.
Evenly spread the 1 cup of raspberry preserves almost to the edge.
Here is where you'll need the 2 cups of reserved crumble mixture!  Break it up and sprinkle over the top until you can't see anymore raspberry.  You don't need to press it down.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until the top is just turning golden.
Let it cool completely before cutting into bars!
These babies are sweet and rich!  I would cut the large square so you get 4 squares by 4 squares (math majors... that would give you 16 bars)  Yummy - Enjoy!!!

  1. Um -- YUM! Anything that involves brown-sugar crumbles is right up my alley. These look amazing.
    Looks great! Alli
