Raspberry Oat Squares

I love desserts that are super easy to make and only requires one bowl to mix everything together. These yummy squares are fresh, crispy and the perfect dessert for Summer or Spring. You can basically use any fruit filling to make these treats. Enjoy it with a nice cup of tea or coffee. Let me tell you, you will be going back for seconds.

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 22 x 23 square pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine your cake flour, salt, baking powder, oats, desiccated coconut and sugar. Leaving the 1 tsp extra sugar aside.
