These scrumptious layered raspberry bars bake to perfection with layers of buttery brown sugar and oat crust and coconut. It's an easy recipe to prepare, and the results are amazing. If you make these bars for a party, take along several batches of the recipe.
The bars call for seedless raspberry jam, but strawberry jam or preserves would be delicious as well. Feel free to add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of chopped pecans or walnuts to the topping for extra crunch.
1 cup butter, softened
2 1/2 cups (11 1/2 ounces) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, well beaten
1 cup seedless raspberry jam, or raspberry preserves
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut, packed
Gather the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan or spray with nonstick baking spray.
Combine butter, flour, granulated and brown sugar, oats, and beaten egg in a mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed, scraping bowl occasionally with a silicone spatula, just until mixture is blended but still somewhat crumbly.
Reserve 2 cups of crumb mixture and set aside. Pat remaining crumb mixture over bottom of prepared baking pan.
Spoon raspberry jam evenly over crumb layer. Spread jam to cover, to within 1/2-inch of edges.
Sprinkle flaked coconut evenly over jam layer.
Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture evenly over coconut layer.
Bake raspberry bars for about 45 minutes, or until crumb topping has browned lightly.
Cool completely before cutting into squares.
