We are all about that “bar life.” No… not the kind you’re thinking of with the giggle juice. More like granola or breakfast bar life. My son LOVES them. If I’m being honest, most of the time I cheat and buy those Fiber One bars because they are his favorite but one of my goals this year is to make more homemade baked goods.

I’m not a baker by nature. But I think I can teach myself to like baking.

I KNOW I LIKE TO EAT BAKED GOODS 🙂 hehe

I think part of the reason I’m not a big baker is baking to me is more about science and exactness. If you miss one ingredient or don’t add enough of one, the entire recipe can fail. AND you won’t know it’s failed until it’s done baking!

At least with cooking you can taste test along the way and know what the outcome is going to be. You can add a little of this or that throughout the process and have an awesome finished product at the end. THAT YOU DON’T NEED TO COMPLETELY REMAKE!

And that is the kicker! I don’t like having to make things twice in one day.

Unless I’ve eaten the entire batch and am making a second batch.

Which has happened before. Just sayin. 🙂

And these Almond Oat Raspberry Bars definitely would fit that “make twice in one day” category because they are that good!

This Raspberry Bar Recipe is naturally sweetened with mashed banana and maple syrup, then I added in a little almond extract for some extra almond flavor. (we are all about the almond at our house) The crust part of this recipe is actually used for both the crust and the crunchy topping. Which makes it awesome and easy because now you’re not making a recipe for the crust and another one for the topping. One bowl!

Ahem… saving time folks. That’s what I’m all about.

The Raspberry filling for this recipe is also super easy with only 3 ingredients, one of them being the raspberries. You’ll love the fresh tart flavor.

These Almond Oat Raspberry Bars ring in at 129 calories a bar with only 5 grams of sugar and 4 grams of fiber. They are perfect for a grab and go breakfast, a mid day snack or a healthy late night sweet treat!

If you’re not a big raspberry fan the fruit can easily be subbed out with blueberries, strawberries or blackberries or you could just mixed them all together and make a mixed berry bar! Whatever you choose, just choose to make this recipe. I know you’ll love them and so will the family!

Bon Appetit friends and happy weekending!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Almond Oat Crust:

  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup old fashion gluten free oats
  • 1 cup gluten free oat flour
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds, finely ground
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray a 8×8 baking dish with cooking spray, or line with parchment paper. (this will help for easy removal later) Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl add fresh raspberries, ground flaxseed and 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract. Gently toss to coat the raspberries with the flaxseed. Set aside.
  4. For the crust: In a large bowl add bananas and mash. Next add gluten free oats, gluten free oat flour, ground raw almonds, cinnamon, almond extract, salt, maple syrup and coconut oil. Mix well until a loose dough starts to form. Set 3/4 cup of the mixture aside, we’ll use this for a topping later.
  5. To prepared dish, add almond oat dough. Spread out evenly on bottom of the pan and make sure you press the dough into the pan so it forms a crust when it bakes.
  6. Top with raspberry mixture and evenly spread.
  7. Then sprinkle the remaining 3/4 cup dough mixture on top of the raspberries for a crust.
  8. Bake for 28-30 minutes or until top is golden brown.
  9. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes. Serve.
