My cooler is in a ceaseless condition of excessively full. It's entirely dreadful and I'm somewhat stunned I haven't broken the cooler yet with exactly how full I stuff it. The main reason I needed to make these bars was to dispose of 2 1/2 cups of solidified berries however for reasons unknown I can't exactly comprehend, I just utilized 1/2 cups.

At that point I froze on the grounds that solitary a large portion of the outside layer was secured and that is the point at which I chose to dump on a lot of chocolate. It was either that or start from the very beginning, which I truly didn't have a craving for doing, so the chocolate won. Also, presently I get the opportunity to share these stunning chocolate raspberry oat bars as opposed to out and out on raspberry bars. I'm alright with that. :)

The previous summer, I made these strawberry oat bars and in that post, I said that I needed to attempt a rendition with coconut oil, which would make these oat bars vegetarian + without dairy. So in these raspberry bars, I diminished the fat by 4 teaspoons and that worked. The bars weren't slick and held together well! On the off chance that you would prefer not to utilize coconut oil, use 3/4 cup margarine rather than 2/3 cup coconut oil as recorded underneath.

The raspberries possibly spread about a large portion of the surface so in the event that you would prefer not to add chocolate to the center raspberry layer of the bars (like the above picture), I'd propose going with 2 1/2 cups raspberries + 7 tablespoons raspberry jam. What's more, including lemon get-up-and-go! Since berries without lemon pizzazz is simply dismal.
