Raspberry, Lemon and Pine Nut Bars


Raspberry, Lemon and Pine Nut Bars
Last weekend we made the most of the Bank Holiday and headed off on a little tour of our home county to road test the newly published Marco Polo Devon and Cornwall pocket guide. Days out with three children can be really expensive though, so to help cut the costs a little we packed a picnic to take with us on our travels. We made it all the way down to the Eden Project and Truro and managed to largely avoid the sea mist that had engulfed most of the north coast where we live. Our little jaunt made us realise that there are so many places in Cornwall that we've yet to truly discover so we're making plans over the summer months to seek out some of these hidden gems.

We ate our picnic sat outside Truro Cathedral, after having a little mooch inside.  We feasted on some handy little mini quiches, veggie sticks and hummus, wedges of frittata that I'd made the night before and for a sweet treat, these raspberry, lemon and pine nut bars.

These yummy baked bars are the perfect accompaniment to any picnic. They travel really well and are also lovely and filling, providing a useful pick me up after a morning of walking and sightseeing. The base and topping are just a crumble type mixture, which is so easy to make, especially if you have a food processor. The fresh raspberries and lemon zest complement the sweet crumble perfectly, with the pine nuts giving it some nutty crunchiness.

 TOP TIPS FOR MAKING RASPBERRY, LEMON AND PINE NUT BARS 

  • Try using other soft fruits such as blueberries and blackberries.
  • Substitute the pine nuts for other types of nuts - chopped hazelnuts or walnuts would work well.
  • Use a processor to pulse the flour, oats and butter together to save you rubbing it in by hand.
  • The raspberry, lemon and pine nut bars freeze really well so make a double batch and freeze half for another day.
