Easy Gluten-Free Raspberry Oatmeal Bars. Gluten free, no eggs, & vegan and dairy free options! You won’t believe how easy to make and delicious this dessert is.
1/2 cup coconut sugar, or packed light brown
1 cup gluten-free flour (measure-for-measure)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup + 1/4 cups rolled oats, divided
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup seedless raspberry jam, warmed so slightly melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 or 9″ square pan with parchment paper. (This makes it easier to cut and remove the bars along with faster clean-up later!)
Combine sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, 1 cup rolled oats, and vanilla extract. Mix in the softened butter. Press 2 cups (do not pack into a measuring cup – loosely packed is fine. If you pack it into a measuring cup, you won’t have enough for the topping) of the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Spread the melted jam to within 1/4 inch of the edge. Stir in 1/4 cup of oats to the remaining crumb mixture and sprinkle over the top of the raspberry jam. Lightly press it down. There may be a few spots of jam showing through which is fine.
Bake for 40-50 minutes in preheated oven, or until lightly browned.
Allow the bars to cool completely before cutting into squares. Enjoy!
