Raspberry Oat Bars

raspberry oat bar

These deliciously sweet homemade breakfast bars are the perfect start to your day. Pair them with a smoothie (such as the Blueberry Flax Smoothie) and you're good to go! They're also a wonderful option for a healthy dessert.



Ingredients

  • 1 cup raspberries (frozen)
  • 1/3 cup Florida Crystals Organic Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup white flour unbleached
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup oats (Old Fashioned)
  • 6 tablespoons Smart Balance Light Buttery Spread

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8-inch square pan.
  2. Thaw raspberries and puree in blender.
  3. In a small pot combine the raspberries, Florida crystals, and lemon juice. Bring mixture to a boil for 2 minutes stirring regularly. Set aside to cool while following next steps.
  4. Mix together the flours, baking soda, salt, and oats. Now add the melted butter and mix until crumbly.
  5. Press dry mixture into pan. Top with raspberry mixture. I like to leave a slight edge around the pan so it doesn’t stick to the sides.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting bars to ensure raspberry mixture is firm.
