Method

  1. Preheat the oven to fan 170C/ conventional 190C/gas 5. Butter a shallow 23cm square tin. Tip the flour, oats and butter into a mixing bowl and use your fingers to work the mixture together to make coarse crumbs. Mix in the sugar, lemon zest and three quarters of the pine nuts using your hands, then press the mixture together well so it forms large sticky clumps.

  2. Drop about two thirds of the oat mixture into the base of the tin, spread it out and press down very lightly – don’t pack it too firmly. Scatter the raspberries on top, sprinkle the rest of the oat mixture over, then the rest of the pine nuts and press everything down lightly.

  3. Bake for 35-40 minutes until pale golden on top. Cut into 12 bars with a sharp knife while still warm, then leave to cool in the tin before removing. Will keep for 2-3 days.

These were really yummy, but I found that they fell apart very easily. When left overnight, they did hold together better tho'. I also found them quite tricky to get out of the tin. Would still make them again.

Just made these for my husbands birthday tea, a real winner and the smell is lovely. Quick, easy and a bit different.

Totally delicious! Fresh sharp raspberrys mix well with the the crunchy sweet oaty base. Have made this several times and always comes out well. So simple to make with no great finesse needed ideal when you're in a hurry. Would highly recommend.

They were very tasty! I love the addition of the pine nuts, which transforms the flavour from good to brilliant and provides an interesting texture too.

I make this with blackberries (free from a hedgerow near you!) and walnuts, and think it tastes even better than the original.

Excellent recipe! made these because got given some home grown raspberrys and my boyfriend (who once claimed to not to have liked either nuts or raspberrys!) demolished the lot!!

These are really good but I too found there was a bit too much butter in them for me, I will try them with a bit less next time.
