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.

Interesting Amber! Definitely most cashews that are unsalted/untoasted have been heated for sure, definitely hard to find truly raw cashews (that haven't been heated). Haven't heard much about the toxicity -- could be true, as you say, hard to separate fact from fiction these days

I'm wondering if sliced almond could be used instead of cashews....my son is allergic to cashews.

Hi Shaundra,

You could use macadamia nuts or sliced almonds instead of the cashews, yes. You could also add more coconut instead as a substitute, but then you will have to process it for a bit longer, similar to my white chocolates recipe.

Hope this helps

I'm not a big chocolate fan so when I saw this recipe I decided to try it. Amazing! I love it, and the jam filling...well, let's just say not all of it made it into the dessert!

Thanks!

I too love the jam filling - next time I might even double it because I think the ratio could be a little more jammy (if you know what I mean!). Glad this tickled your tastebuds, Keri

Just bought ingredients to try this and the ranch dressing as well. Only problem is all I could find was salted cashews. I'm guessing that's not what is meant to be used. I bought them hoing things will turn out ok. Any opinion? I hate to waste the ingredients if it will definitely be a failure

Hi Rachael. Salted roasted cashews are not raw and are not ideal. But if you're going to use them, omit all the additional salt since it will be salty.

I find the best places to get unsalted, untoasted cashews are health food stores or bulk food stores

I just found you & think I will want to join in the future. I can't join until Jan03 at the earliest. Is it possible to have too many subscribers?
Do you have alternative plans for the future or are we out of luck?
