Oatmeal Raspberry Coconut Bars

Oatmeal, raspberry and coconut? Oh my! This bar is heaven in every bite.


  • 1-1/4 cups sweetened flaked untoasted coconut, divided
  • 1-1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into pieces
  • 1-1/2 cups old fashioned oats (not instant)
  • 1 1/4 cups seedless raspberry jam


  1. First, toast 3/4 cup of coconut. Preheat the oven to 375℉ and position an oven rack in the middle. Spread the coconut evenly on a baking sheet. Bake for about 4-5 minutes, or until the coconut becomes lightly golden. Stir occasionally and watch carefully. Let the coconut cool before using. Keep oven on.
  2. To make the dough, butter a 13″ x 9″ pan. Blend the flour, sugars, and salt in a food processor. Add the cold butter pieces to the mixture and pulse until a dough forms. Transfer the dough to a bowl and gently mix in the oats and toasted coconut until well combined.
  3. Set aside a 3/4 cup of dough and press the remaining dough into a buttered pan. Spread the raspberry jam evenly over the dough. Crumble the reserved dough evenly over the jam and then sprinkle it with the remaining 1/2 cup of untoasted coconut. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden, then cool. Cut the dough into bars and store at room temperature.

The first time I made this recipe I used a little less jam. But I altered it a bit and upped the jam measurement to 1 1/4 cups.

Trust me on this one… that subtle change makes the perfect jam to buttery crust ratio.

You can store these bars in the fridge or at room temperature for up to three days. But I recommend loosening the bars with a knife before they’re completely cooled.

This will make them much easier to get out of the pan!
