Recipe Directions

  • 1. Process all white shortbread ingredients in food processor. Process briefly until you get a crumbly consistency, similar to the white topping in my photos. (Mixture should stick together when pinched.)
  • 2. Take 3/4 of the white mixture and press it down firmly into your pan/molds. Refrigerate immediately so the bars can start firming up. (Set remaining 1/4 white mixture aside, to be used later.)
  • 3. Blend all raspberry jam ingredients together until a smooth, jam-like consistency is reached.
  • 4. Get your white bars out of the fridge, and smooth the raspberry jam on top of the bars using the back of a spoon. Place back in refrigerator.
  • 5. Refrigerate bars for at least 1 hour so that the jam can firm up a little bit.
  • 6. Sprinkle remaining white crumble mixture on top of the bars.
  • 7. Place in freezer for at least 3 hours to firm up.  Your raw raspberry bars are now ready. (Store in freezer at all times.)

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

I enjoyed making these raspberry bars for Christmas this year. They add lovely holiday color, and they are easy to keep in the freezer so you can make them a couple of days in advance. Bars can be kept in the freezer for up to 1 week.

If using frozen raspberries, you may need to add an optional 1-2 tablespons water to the jam mixture to help it blend. 

To make the cute little bar shapes seen in my pictures, I used silicone financier molds. (I love them.) If you don't have molds, you can simply make the bars in a large sheet or pan and cut them into bars once frozen.

Hello, these look wonderful. My guy just asked me if I could make a raw raspberry dessert and I found you, so I am looking forward to making this within the next couple of days. One question though, I am guessing that the cashews are NOT soaked beforehand? Most recipes always ask for a pre-soak so just making sure. Thanks again. Happy New Year~

Hi Toni,

You got it! No need to soak the cashews.

In my recipes, soaking is only required if it is specifically stated.

Hope your man will enjoy!

I loved the flavor of this and texture, but mine fell apart. It was great right out of the freezer but at room temperature had to be eaten with a spoon to get it in my mouth. Any idea?

Hi Shelley,

This is normal - you definitely want to eat it straight away out of the freezer :)

Peter's Review

Raw raspberry bars recipe

As is there is way too much coconut. This is basically raspberry jam over coconut topped with more coconut. I would adjust the ingredients and reduce the coconut and increase the cashews. One of your other recipes has this for a shortbread:
1 cup cashews
1 cup dried, unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup dates
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

This to me would have better balance

Hi.. This does look super yummy, but just wondered what your thoughts are on cashews? They crop up in so many raw desserts, but I was once advised by a holistic nutritionist that cashews are not fit for human consumption as they have an incredibly toxic coating when truly 'raw', so any shop bought varieties are steamed to release the coating (which is the same toxin found in poison ivy), and never technically a raw product. I wonder if the fact they are so toxic in nature suggests we should not be consuming them...??! Who knows, the internet is a source of much conflicting information!!
