One Pot Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

So excited that Kohl’s Cares has selected The Mom 100 Cookbook to be featured in their kids program. This amazing program has raised over $257 million to support children’s health and educational initiatives across the country. In honor of their giving spirit, here is a little sneak preview of my next cookbook, Dinner Solved!.

One Pot Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

Oatmeal Bars with Jam

Whenever I find myself in possession of a new jar of preserves from a farm stand, or given to me by a generous friend, I make these One Pot Raspberry Oatmeal Bars. They are the favorite summertime dessert of the moment for my family, and I hope you’ll like them as much as my guys do. And the entire recipe comes together in just one pot, no extra bowls. How lovely.

I hope everyone will go to their local Kohl’s, or check out the website and order the special edition of The Mom 100 Cookbook. 100% of the net profit from the sale of this item will support kids’ health and education initiatives in communities nationwide.

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 10 to 12-ounce jar raspberry or blueberry or whatever jam preferably seedless


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter an 8 x 8 –inch baking metal pan, or spray with nonstick cooking spray (if you use a glass pan, the cooking time will be a little longer).
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.  Remove from the heat, add the brown sugar and stir until dissolved.   Stir in the flour, baking soda and salt, then blend in the oats; the mixture should be very crumbly.
  • Measure 2 ½ cups of the mixture (a little more than half) into the baking pan and press it firmly into the bottom so that it is evenly distributed.  Spoon the jam over the top of the crumb base, using the back of the spoon to spread it evenly.  Evenly distribute the reserved crumb topping over the top, pressing it lightly into the jam (it will just cover the filling).
  • Bake for 40 to 50 minutes until lightly browned on top and firm.  Cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.  Cut into 16 squares.


This is the perfect quick and lazy recipe as it comes together in just one bowl.

    Hi, would it work with a gluten-free alternative? I have almond, coconut and teff flours in my pantry. Also, would swapping the sugar with maple syrup ruin the consistency?

    1. Katie Workman says:

      I haven’t tried it with another type of flour, but if you do, please let me know how it turns out!

      1. Kitty says:

        Will do!

  2. Annie says:

    Perhaps I’m biased but I swear to God these emails = best publicity/promotion I know of, for any book, from any publisher.
