Raspberry White Chocolate Bars

The song “Raspberry Beret” by Prince came into my head the second I bit into a Raspberry White Chocolate Bar. It didn’t make much sense since these are desert bars and Prince is singing about a girl wearing a raspberry beret (the kind you find in a second hand store…if you know the song). But, it’s a happy song and these bars will put you in a happy mood with or without the out loud sing-along.

The creamy white chocolate layer and fresh raspberries are sandwiched in between sweet oats. Dessert bars are really just layers of flavors, all working in great harmony (like a Prince song).

“Raspberry beret…if it was warm she wouldn’t wear much more…” If this song was named after this bar, it would be “Raspberry Oat Bars…if she eats more, she’ll have to buy bigger pants.”


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold unsalted butter
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot (or 2 tablespoons cornstarch)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • white chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon milk

How To:

In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, oats, 1 cup of the sugar and baking soda. Add butter and combine with hands or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside 2 cups for the topping. Press the rest of the crumb mixture into a greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan.

Melt white chocolate chips in microwave. Heat for 1 minute, stir; heat for 30 second intervals until completely smooth, stirring in between. Spread over the crumb mixture in baking pan.

In a saucepan, combine raspberries, arrowroot (or cornstarch), lemon juice and remaining sugar. Bring to a boil. While boiling, stir for about 2 minutes.  Spread evenly over the white chocolate layer. Sprinkle with the reserved crumb mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Oats will be slightly browned. Cool or refrigerate before cutting.

    First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before
    writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out
    there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or
    tips? Thanks!

    Thought-about a “shop rebate,” consumers tend to be comfortable to be able to match alongside
    a manufacturer’s coupon about each item as the particuular
    incentives are really cut up between your hold onto as
    well as the maker. I like stars and cosmic designs quite a lot and I always find paper like that at those stores.

    be greatly appreciated!

    I rarely drop remarks, however i did a few searching and wound up here Raspberry White Chocolate Bars | Growling Tummy.
    And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be only me or does it give the impression like a few of
    the comments appear as if they are written by brain dead individuals?
    :-P And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list of every one of all your shared sites like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?
