I gotta start thinking “kinda healthy & delicious”.  I used this recipe.

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups oats (old fashioned or quick)
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup wheatgerm
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg

Raspberry Filling
1 pint raspberries
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons lemon juice

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine raspberries, sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil, stirring constantly. Simmer 2 minutes while continuing to stir constantly until sauce is thick and translucent. Remove from heat and set aside.

Combine oats, flour, sugar, wheatgerm and cinnamon in a food processor. Process until oats are finely ground. Add oil and egg, and pulse until combined. Press half of the crumb mixture evenly on bottom of a 9×9 baking pan/dish. Pour raspberry filling over crumbs, spreading evenly. Top with remaining crumbs and gently pat mixture down. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let bars cool completely before cutting into bars.
