But I like to try to find new ways to make it for her. Mix it up a little, ya know Last week, the grocery store had fresh raspberries on sale for $1 so I decided to make her some fruit filled oatmeal bars for breakfast. These bars would work great for a snack too!
RASPBERRY OATMEAL BARS
1 package (6 ounces) fresh raspberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 & 1/2 cups flour
1 & 1/2 cups oats ~ I used quick cook
1 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cold butter
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 x 8 baking dish.
In a small saucepan over low heat, add the fresh raspberries & 1/2 cup sugar. Allow the raspberries to soften and turn into preserves.
Mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle half the mixture into the pan and pat lightly to pack it a little tight. Spoon the warm raspberry preserves evenly over the surface. Sprinkle the other half of the oat mixture over the top and pat lightly again.
Bake until light golden brown on top, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool in pan. When cool, cut into squares and serve.
