Karen DeMasco?s crumbly soft, jammy-sweet bars travel well, so they?re ideal for school bake sales. She says, ?They are quick to put together with pantry staples, and everyone seems to love them.? They?re delicious made with any flavor of jam, as well as the raspberry preserves called for here. (Recipe adapted from The Craft of Baking.)

Recipe Ingredients for Back-to-School Raspberry Granola Bars

1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing the pan
1 cup raspberry preserves

Recipe Directions for Back-to-School Raspberry Granola Bars

  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan and line the bottom and sides with parchment paper. Spread the chopped pecans in a pie plate and toast for about 5 minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant. Let cool.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour with the rolled oats, granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt, baking soda and pecans. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the melted butter until the oat mixture is thoroughly combined.

  3. Press two-thirds of the oat mixture in an even layer on the bottom of the prepared baking pan and top with the raspberry preserves. Sprinkle the preserves with the remaining oat mixture.

  4. Bake the bars for about 45 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through baking, until the top is golden brown. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the granola bars cool completely, about 3 hours. Cut into squares and serve.

  5. MAKE AHEAD

  6. The bars can be kept in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
