You are gonna love how easy Gluten-Free Raspberry Bars are to make. Basically, all you need to do is mix, layer, bake, cool and serve. Yep, it is that simple. I always have old-fashioned oats, coconut and a jar of raspberry preserves in the pantry so I can make this festive gluten-free bar cookie at a moment’s notice.
Living in the desert our summers are sizzling to say the least! I try to get my baking done first thing in the morning. Bar cookies are one of my favorite go to recipes since they are so easy to make. Simpler than a dropped or rolled cookie, these layer bar cookies are made in a pan so they bake in less time than using cookie sheets.
I love giving homemade baked goods as gifts! So, if I hear a friend or relative talking about a favorite food, such as chocolate or raspberries, I will make a note of that next to their name in my address book. Then when I am looking for that “perfect gift”, I make a delicious treat that is just for them. Of course packaging the baked goods are fun as well! It is so much fun to see the expression on their face when they open their present!
Of course, Gluten-Free Raspberry Bars can be made anytime of year. Which really makes them one of the best gift ideas from the kitchen!Print
