Raspberry Jam Crumb Bars | Easy 5 Ingredient Recipe | 5 Ingredient Dessert | Easy Dessert Recipe | Semi-homemade Dessert

There’s nothing better than a freshly baked, homemade dessert, one that makes the whole house smell sugar and spice and everything nice!  Of course when life gets busy, baking from scratch is one of the first things to go.


Great family meals don’t have to be complicated. This mini cookbook serves up 10 easy meals, each only requiring 5 ingredients or less

Luckily for this amazingly simple recipe, you don’t have to start from scratch!  This oh-so-easy Raspberry Jam Crumb Bar recipe comes together in less than an hour with just five basic ingredients and yet tastes like you spent all day slaving in the kitchen.  Now that is MY kind of recipe!


Here is what you need:

1 17.5 oz. package oatmeal cookie mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup Raspberry preserves (or your favorite)
1 TBS fresh orange juice
1/2 cup sliced almonds
non-stick cooking spray


Step 1: Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9×9 square baking dish with a nonstick cooking spray then set aside. In a large bowl empty cookie mixture and cut in softened butter, until mixture is crumbly.


Step 2: Remove 1 cup of cookie mixture and set aside.


Step 3: Press the remaining cookie mixture into the bottom of the baking dish.Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown on the edges. Remove from oven, place on wire rack and allow to cool for 10 minutes.


Step 4: In a small bowl mix together preserves and orange juice. Place tablespoons of preserve mixture over cookie crust and then top with reserved cookie mixture(be sure it resembles large crumbs) and almonds.


Step 5: Bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the preserves mixture is bubbly.


Step 6: Cool completely on wire rack, then cut into bars.

    I went to the store just to buy the ingredients because they looked so good. (Also I am so pregnant.) They were out of oatmeal cookie mix, so I am going to experiment with mixing some oats with sugar cookie mix.

    This looks delicious and super easy to make. It would make a great treat to have around the house for the Holiday season and I usually have most of those items at my house.

    Thanks for the post!

    Made this today, it tasted great and was really easy too! I used apple juice instead of orange, and had some left over carrot cake jam which I used up.
