Makes 16 squares

For the base

  • 100 grams unsalted butter, softened
  • 150 grams brown sugar
  • 300 grams almond butter (or any nut butter)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 organic egg
  • 200 grams plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 300 grams good quality raspberry jam

For the crumble topping

  • 50 grams oats
  • 50 grams flour
  • 50 grams butter
  • 25 grams brown sugar
  • 25 grams sliced almonds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 generous pinch of sea salt
  • 1 1 punnet fresh raspberries, to decorate (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 180C. Line a 22cm x 22cm square tin with baking paper.
  2. First, make the base. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until pale, light and fluffy. Mix in almond butter, vanilla and egg. Gradually mix in flour, baking powder and salt. Stop mixer once just combined, being careful not to over mix.
  3. Spoon almond butter dough into prepared tin, spreading it out to the edges. Spread jam evenly over the top.
  4. Next, make the crumble. Combine ingredients in a large bowl and use your fingers to rub together until a rough breadcrumb consistency is reached. Scatter crumble over the jam layer, leaving some slightly bigger chunks.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool in its tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Once completely cool, transfer to a chopping board and, using a sharp knife, cut into 16 squares (about 4cm x 4cm). Top each square with a fresh raspberry.
  6. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to five days.
