Easy Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

You know we’re fans of Easy Oatmeal Bars around here! From fruity to chocolatey, we love them all! These Raspberry Oatmeal Bars are layered with wholesome oats and fresh raspberries. Oh, what a glorious combination!

True story. My husband isn’t really a fan of raspberries and he likes this recipe. I know, crazy, but I made him try them anyway. Admittedly, he tried them first with a little whipped cream for dessert, but he’s a fan now!

Healthy Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

You know what makes these bars so wholesome and delicious? For one, they contain whole wheat flour, which contains several vitamins, including folate, riboflavin and vitamins B-1, B-3 and B-5 – plus, it’s rich in fiber. Then you have the oats that are among the healthiest grains on earth. They’re a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. These bars also have fresh raspberries that taste amazing, but also contain strong antioxidants like Vitamin C, quercetin and gallic acid that fight against cancer, heart and circulatory disease.

So all in all, these bars are:

  • Easy to make.
  • Make a great grab-n-go breakfast.
  • Taste amazing.
  • Are packed full of vitamins, and antioxidants.

Tips for The Best Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

  • This recipe is best if you use old fashioned oats, not instant oats.
  • I like using the healthy option of whole wheat flour, but regular flour would also work.
  • To store, layer the bars between waxed paper in an airtight container. Keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Bring back to room temperature before serving.
  • Raspberry Oatmeal Bars can be frozen for up to 3 months, just bring to room temperature when ready to eat them.
  • You can substitute coconut oil for the butter if you like.
