    momaphet's Note:

    I love raspberry and almonds together! I adapted this recipe from one I found on America's Test Kitchen. Toasting the nuts adds great flavor so don't skip this step. This recipe is easily doubled and would then be made in a 15" jelly roll pan.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
    • 1 1/4 cups oats
    • 1/3 cup sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
    • 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup toasted almond, finely chopped (pecans or walnuts are good too)
    • 12 tablespoons butter, cut into 12 pieces and softened but still cool
    • 1 cup raspberry preserves (or what ever flavor strikes your fancy, SEE NOTE)


    1. 1
      Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees, spray a 9x13" pan with nonstick cooking spray, you may also line the pan with foil with extra hanging over for easier removal, spray foil.
    2. 2
      In mixer bowl, mix flour, oats, sugars, extract, baking soda, salt, and nuts at low speed until combined, about 30 seconds. With mixer running at low speed, add butter pieces; continue to beat until mixture is well-blended and resembles wet sand, about 2 minutes.
    3. 3
      Transfer 2/3 of mixture to prepared pan and use hands to press crumbs evenly into bottom, bake until starting to brown, about 20 minutes.
    4. 4
      Using rubber spatula spread preserves evenly over hot bottom crust; sprinkle remaining oat/nut mixture evenly over preserves; bake until preserves bubble around edges and top is golden brown, about 30 minutes, turn pan halfway through baking time.
    5. 5
      Cool on wire rack then remove from pan using foil handles, cut into squares.
    6. 6
    7. 7
      After reading the first reviews for this, I realized the jam I used is lower sugar than many jams (9 gms per TBLS) It would be worth it to find a type that isn't overly sweet or try adding a little lemon juice to cut the sweetness.

      I made this and took it to my daughters for brunch. I added some strawberry preserves as I ran out of the raspberry. Very nice. Made for Zwt6 for the Xtra Hot Dishes.Thanks for posting.

      This is yum and a great way to use up jam that is near its use by date. I in fact have done this in the past with 2 different jams - plum one end and berry the other. Today i have done it with passionfruit jam for ZWT and it is terrific.

      Very good. Love the combination of raspberries and almonds! I think I would like to try this again and use fresh raspberries to make the filling. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT4.
