  • 200g plain flour
  • 200g porridge oat
  • 250g pack butter, room temperature, cut into small pieces



    Butter is a dairy product made from separating whole milk or cream into fat and…

  • 175g light muscovado sugar
  • finely grated zest of 1 lemon



    Oval in shape with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile…

  • 100g pack pine nut
  • 2 punnets raspberries (total weight 250g/9oz)



    A member of the rose family, raspberries have a wonderfully intense, sweet taste, and many…


  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.

Could you use frozen raspberries?

Yes, I did. By the time I'd made the base, they'd partly defrosted. Cooked in the same time as recipe allows, so not sure that there's any difference.

Can you please tell me if you can freeze these Raspberry and Pine nut bars. If not how long would they keep as I want to make them for a tea party? Thank you Stephanie

Delicious! Not keen on pine nuts so used dessicated coconut and added chocolate chips - YUM!

Made for a cake sale at work and they went fast - I even had people coming back for seconds! Great reviews and not so hard to make. A nice change from the usual cake choices. My new favourite recipe :-)

First time I made these, they fell apart completely and had to be eaten with a spoon. The next time, I left them in the tin until completely cool and they held together much better. Everyone loves them. A real hit with my work colleagues.
