I posted this recipe eons ago and am reposting it today with some new photos and a few minor optional changes to the recipe. If you’ve been looking for a new bar cookie to make, you’ve got to try these.

Right up front I’m going to warn you that these Raspberry Coconut Oatmeal Bars are totally and completely deadly. They are gooey, rich, decadent and absolutely fabulous!
I have a yummy recipe for lemon bars that I will share another time, but I was wanting something a little different the other day— something with raspberry and coconut (yum!) so I changed up the recipe for lemon bars and came up with these. I’m not going to lie, they rock, and I mean THEY ROCK!
As soon as I tried one, I knew I’d have to quickly give them away. I of course did manage to eat about an entire row of them before I so kindly shared them. My sister-in-law said they are her new favorite treat.
I think raspberry and coconut are such a stellar combination and when you combine them with a buttery, oatmeal crust and sweetened condensed milk you have a sure-fire winner.
What you will need:
- baking powder
- brown sugar
- sweetened condensed milk
- raspberry jam/preserves
These bars are definitely plenty sweet and plenty rich so I suggest cutting them into small squares. Also, I love these bars chilled and highly recommend you try them chilled. Room temperature is also fine, but chilled is my fav.
Get ready to put on your stretchy pants and/or grab your running shoes because you will definitely need to go run a mile or 10.Print
