I wanted to share one of our favorite recipes for oatmeal bars. They are raspberry oatmeal bars and they are so good!
What you need to make them:
2 sticks butter, (softened)
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 cup rolled Original Nature Valley Muesli (blueberry would be good, too!)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 egg, beaten
1 quart raspberries
1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
2 cups sugar
Preheat oven to 350 (I bake everything at 350)
In one bowl, add flour, sugar and oats. Stir. Add salt. Stir again.
Beat in butter and an egg. It will look like crumbs. Set aside just over 2 cups of this.
With the remaining mixture, press it into the bottom of a buttered baking dish. Set aside and make your filling.
Cook berries and 1/4 cup water in a pot. Simmer on Medium heat. Cover and cook for 10 minutes. Drain the berries.
Of the liquid that is drained out, take 3 1/4 cups of that and add in 1/4 cup water. Cook this mixture over medium heat.
Add sugar, very slowly, as you don’t want to lose your simmer for very long. Once it is all added and simmering, take it off of the heat and let it cool for an hour.
Pour this mixture onto your oatmeal-mixture in the baking dish.
Cover it with the rest of your mixture.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Let it cool 30-45 minutes before cutting.
Oh! You can buy the Nature Valley Muesli with this coupon. I love to keep it on hand, because even when I’m not using it to make oatmeal bars, I use it for overnight oatmeal recipes (like raisins and spice oatmeal in the crockpot- makes my mornings more simple) Nature Valley Muesli is a can be used as topping for yogurt, eaten warm with milk, eaten cold as cereal, or used to bake a variety of items. It is only simple ingredients, lightly sweetened and made with wholesome ingredients you can feel good about eating.
I hope that you love these Nature Valley Muesli raspberry oatmeal bars as much as our family does! They are the perfect snack or breakfast choice.
