Raspberry and Walnut Oaties

This was a bit of an experiment, loosely based on a recipe for Cranberry and Walnut Oat Slices I'd seen in Jo Pratt's 'In the Mood for Food' and I'm pleased to say they were a great success.

I think I've now found the perfect mid morning pick me up.

200g Porridge Oats
200g Plain Flour
250g Unsalted butter, softened
175g Soft Brown Sugar
Zest 1 Lemon
100g Walnut Pieces
340g Jar of Raspberry Jam

Step 1: Preheat oven to 200c and butter a 20cm square cake tin and line with baking paper
Step 2: Rub the oats, flour and butter together until you have course crumbs. Mix in the sugar, lemon zest and walnut pieces, then press half into tin.
Step 3: Spread jam over the top then scatter remaining oat mixture over.
Step 4: Bake for 35 minutes and leave to cool in tin before cutting into squares


  1. Thay sound lovely and I might well have a go at doing these this weekend..

    ps how do you manage to get the three box links to other recipes on your blog... it's very good

  2. Don't ya just love Jo Pratts In the Mood for Food? I've had my copy for over a year now and love everything I've made. You must definitely try the Chicken, Leek and Ham pies, Extremely Simple Beef and Aple Casserole and the Chianti Baked Meatballs.

  3. Bars like that a very big here in the Midwest but I've never made them. These definitely sound good enough to try

  4. Oh these sound heavenly. I love raspberry anything!

  5. Sounds like a yummy combination.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
