Raspberry Oatmeal Squares Recipe

Raspberry Oatmeal Squares: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) and place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Butter, or spray with a non stick vegetable spray, a 9 inch (23 cm) square baking pan. 

Oatmeal Base: In the bowl of your electric stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until incorporated. Scrape down the sides and bottom of your bowl as needed.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the butter mixture and mix until well combined. Stir 1 3/4 cups (155 grams) of the rolled oats into the batter. Press 2/3 (450 grams) of the batter onto the bottom of the prepared pan. 

Next, evenly spread the raspberry jam over the oatmeal base. To the remaining batter add the remaining 1/4 cup (25 grams) of rolled oats. Crumble this mixture evenly over the top of the raspberry jam. Bake for about 25 - 30 minutes or until nicely browned. Place on a wire rack to cool and then cut into squares. The texture of the squares will be crisp when freshly made. If you cover and store them overnight, the texture softens and they become soft and chewy. They can be stored in the refrigerator, or at room temperature, for several days. Or they can be frozen.

Makes about 16 Raspberry Oatmeal Squares.
