Oatmeal Coconut Raspberry Bars

Oatmeal barsThese are delicious lovely little bar cookies that are quick to put together and totally delicious!  What I especially love about these bars is that they freeze beautifully and you can eat them straight from the freezer and when you do they’re a bit chewy and oh-so yummy!

Oatmeal Coconut Raspberry Bars  

1 1/2 c. sweetened flaked coconut
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. light brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. butter, cut in pieces
1 1/2 c. old fashioned oats
3/4 c. seedless raspberry jam

Preheat oven to 375F. Spread 3/4 cup coconut on a baking sheet and toast in middle of oven, stirring once until golden, about 8 minutes, then cool. Blend together flour, sugars, salt in a food processor then add butter and blend until dough begins to form. Transfer to a bowl and kneed in oats and toasted coconut until combined well. Reserve 3/4 cup of dough, then press remainder evenly into the bottom of a buttered 13-by-9-inch metal baking dish and spread jam over it. Crumble reserved dough evenly over jam then sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup (untoasted) coconut. Bake in middle of oven until golden, 20 to 25 minutes, then cool completely in pan on a rack. Loosen from sides of pan with a sharp knife, then lift out in one piece and transfer to cutting board, Cut into 24 bars.
