Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup raspberry jam
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×9-inch baking pan and line it with parchment paper, leaving some overhang for easy removal.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the cold, cubed butter and use your fingers to mix until you have a crumbly mixture.
  3. Press two-thirds of the crumb mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden.
  4. Spread raspberry jam evenly over the baked crust. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture and sliced almonds over the jam layer.
  5. Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Allow to cool completely in the pan on a wire rack before cutting into bars.
