I first had this Raspberry Oatmeal Bar at a friend's house, and their friend from America made this, and the moment I took my first bite, I knew I had to get the recipe from her - and she was so nice to send them to me!
I modified a bit because I wanted it to be a lot less sweeter. The first time I made it, it was not that bad - just sweet. Then I reduced the sugar, and upped a bit of the rolled oats and now, this is how I like them!
Do not ask Adrian or Vanessa. They tried it, and hated it - pfft. Also because they are not really a dessert and oats kind of people heh. Boo.
So yeah, here is the modified recipe. Feel feel to change it to your own liking, if you like them sweeter and all.
Enjoy baking them because they are so so easy!
170g softened butter
150g brown sugar
150g rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
Raspberry jam (or any other jam you like) - at room temperature so it is easier to spread
1 - Preheat oven at 200 Celcius.
2 - Mix together softened butter and brown sugar. Mix well.
3 - Add the rest of the dry ingredients (except jam). Mix well.
4 - Line 9x13 baking pan with baking paper.
5 - Spread 2/3 of the mixture onto the pan. Press them flat to cover the bottom of the pan.
6 - Spread some raspberry jam on top of the mixture and spread them evenly.
7 - Sprinkle the remaining mixture on top of the jam to cover them. Press the mixture lightly.
8 - Bake for 20-minutes, at 200 degrees Celsius.
Till next recipe, bye now.
