Raspberry Crumb Bars

These Raspberry Crumb Bars are a sweet summer treat which I love to make with my kids when they are on school holidays. My kids love to get stuck in and help me bake and I love finding recipes to include them. These raspberry crumb bars are not only tasty, they are great for getting kids involved in the kitchen.

To make these raspberry bars, start by mixing together flour, butter and sugar. Mix ⅓ of the combined flour, butter and sugar with almonds and oats. Squeeze this together to make clumps and bake the remaining mixture in the base of a pan until golden brown. Mash raspberries and sugar together and spread it over the prebaked crust. Scatter remaining raspberries and chilled crumb mixture on top and bake until golden. Once cool, slice into bars and serve. 

To make the Raspberry Crumb Bars, you will need the following ingredients:
