Oatmeal Bars Loaded with Flavors of Blueberry, Raisins and Chocolate Chips

My husband requested for a healthy oatmeal snack which he can tag along to his work and should be easy to grab for a really busy hospital routine. So, I quickly granted his request. Call it Love! :*

Now let’s jump in below the How-To-Bake this fiber-rich & delicious snack –Oatmeal Bars loaded with Blueberry flavor, Raisins and Chocolate Chips! Sprinkled with lots of love and hugs and kisses! :* :* :*


  • 1 & 1/4 cups butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 & 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups quick cooking rolled oats
  • 1 cup blueberry jam
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Prepare your 9″ spring form baking pan by greasing it with butter. Set aside.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl – flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda. Set aside.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, beat butter and white sugar until smooth and creamy.
  4. Add in the eggs in the mixing bowl beat at medium speed.
  5. Add the vanilla extract to the mixture.
  6. Add the oats then beat to medium speed.
  7. Add the dry ingredients which we prepared at step 2. Beat to medium speed.
  8. Sprinkle the raisins and chocolate chips and mix it to the batter.
  9. When almost done mixing the batter, I set my oven at 170’C and pre-heat for 10 minutes. I think every oven has different settings so just pre-heat your oven to 170’C. 🙂
  10. I continued mixing my batter and once done, I poured half of the batter to my baking pan.
  11. Then, added the Blueberry Jam as a filling.
  12. Pour in the remaining half of the batter and topped with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Another load of chocolate chips on top as requested by my lovey dovey.
  13. I baked it in the preheated oven for 48 minutes until toothpick comes out clean and color is golden brown.
