Making Lemon Raspberry Crunch Bars from Your Pantry

Lemon Raspberry Crunch Bars are unique in that they take just a few ingredients, which are probably in your pantry right now, but they taste like they came from your favorite bakery. The base of Lemon Raspberry Crunch Bars is Bisquick. That old standby baking mix is great for these bars! To bulk it up and add a wonderful chewy texture, oats are added. Brown sugar adds amazing sweetness and softened butter holds it all together. What brings in the lemon and raspberry flavors are freshly grated lemon zest and seedless raspberry preserves. They all blend for the perfect sweet and tart dessert in Lemon Raspberry Crunch Bars.

Changing Flavors in Lemon Raspberry Crunch Bars

Lemon Raspberry Crunch Bars are super versatile. Not a raspberry lover? Use whatever preserves or jam you like! When I was purchasing the raspberry for this recipe, I noticed fig preserves on the shelf too. I think I am going to try that one next. I’m also up to trying things like dried fruit in with the preserves, such as peach preserves with dried blueberries, or apricot preserves with dried cherries for a change of pace. Get creative with your Lemon Raspberry Crunch Bars and you’ll have a versatile dessert for any occasion.
