Recipe Details


Oats, brown sugar, and butter begin just about every favorite dessert from our childhoods. Here, it forms the base and the crumbly topping for these bars. Sandwiched in between: applesauce swirled with tart-sweet raspberry preserves. Enjoy right away or pack as a sweet treat in your lunch box tomorrow.

      Add half of oat mixture to tin and, using your fingers or a fork, press into an even layer, being sure to fill edges and corners of tin. Add apple-raspberry filling and spread in an even layer. Crumble over remaining oat mixture to cover filling.

      Place tin on a baking sheet and bake until crumble is golden brown, 20-25 minutes. (Use this time to get ahead on dishes or relax and enjoy the sweet smells filling your kitchen.) Once baked, place tin in refrigerator to cool at least 20 minutes, or set aside at room temperature until completely cooled so it's easier to slice.
