Do these bars look at all familiar? That’s because I’ve made them before, just with blueberries instead. It’s that time of year again when we start heading to the orchard near our house on a biweekly basis (yay!) Thankfully our first trip coincided with the tail end of raspberry season, so we were still able to enjoy picking a LOT of gorgeous ruby red berries. Of course, as soon as we got home I immediately had plans for the 2+ pounds of berries we picked. These bars were in the oven less than an hour after we got home!
I make the blueberry crumb bars often, and have been dying to try them with raspberries. I was worried that raspberries would have more liquid and the consistency would be off but nope, these were just right! Ben claims that these are even better than the blueberry version, but I just can’t decide. I think both are fantastic and I cannot be forced to choose one over the other – please, just give me one of each!
As you can see, Andrew thoroughly enjoyed himself. Find an orchard near you at PickYourOwn and have some fun outdoors!
