If you haven’t tried baked oatmeal yet, you need to hop on the bandwagon! This recipe is quick to prepare and perfect for brunch or serving to the whole family on the weekend! You can even prepare this ahead of time and store it in the fridge until it’s time to bake and serve.

First, combine 1 1/2 cup of rolled old-fashioned oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar (or 1/4 cup of preferred liquid sweetener), 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp salt in a large bowl. Then, mix 1/2 cup milk (or non-dairy substitute), 1/4 cup of applesauce, 1 egg, and 1 tsp of vanilla in a separate bowl. Continuing to stir, slowly add 1 Tablespoon of melted butter and fresh or frozen raspberries. Combine wet and dry ingredients and pour into a small sprayed baking dish. Finally, bake the oatmeal in the oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Fresh Raspberry Zucchini Bread With Lemon Glaze

This breakfast (or dessert) zucchini bread recipe is so good, that you won’t want to share even a crumb! Thankfully, zucchini and raspberry season is around the same time, so that you can make this recipe with fresh ingredients from the garden.

Fresh Raspberry Dessert Recipes

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

You can never go wrong adding fruit to cheesecake to bring a fresh twist! A white chocolate raspberry cheesecake can be made using a standard white chocolate cheesecake recipe. As you’re pouring the white chocolate batter into the crust, start swirling in your homemade raspberry sauce to create a beautiful raspberry swirl towards the top of the cheesecake. The most challenging piece of this cheesecake recipe is resisting it for 8 hours while it cools!

To make the raspberry swirl sauce, boil together 12 ounces of frozen raspberries, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, and 1/2 cup of water. Boil until the sauce is thick (about 5 minutes) and strain to remove seeds!

This dessert is so decadent; you may not need any toppings! However, if you have a sweet tooth like me, whipped cream, a fresh raspberry, and dark chocolate drizzle add an extra dimension to the cheesecake! We love how each of the folks below put their own twist on their raspberry cheesecake, whether it was creating mini hearts, glazing with extra raspberry and chocolate sauce, or adding fresh raspberries and white chocolate chunks on top, whatever way you like you really can’t go wrong!

Raspberry Pie

We have all had the classic scrumptious pies including, apple pie, pumpkin pie, cherry, pecan pie, or blueberry pie. But have you tried raspberry pie?! Raspberry pie is a delicious treat for the summertime because of its sweet and tangy refreshing flavor. You can also mix in other berries like blueberries or blackberries for an extra delicious multi-berry mix! Check out the easy recipe for @dessertnowdinnerlater’s razzleberry pie!

Mini Raspberry Lemon Tarts

Raspberry pairs nicely with citrus flavors, especially lemon! Try baking mini raspberry lemon tarts for a refreshing and light summer dessert! These six-ingredient mini tarts are the perfect treat to serve at any summer gathering!

For the crust, beat together 4 ounces of cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter for about a minute. Then, mix in 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour until dough forms. Shape the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate it for 30-60 minutes.

After the dough has been refrigerated, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and cut the dough into 24 equal pieces. Flatten dough into mini muffin tin cups and bake for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool the crusts in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from the muffin tin to cool completely.

To make the lemon filling, whip 1/4 cup of heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Then, fold in 1/3 cup of lemon curd, fill the tart crust with lemon creme, and top each one with a fresh raspberry. Remember you can always make mini-tarts or a large one depending on your preference and the pan you have.

No-Bake Raspberry Dessert Recipes

The baked recipes above are delicious, but sometimes baking can be time-consuming. Check out these recipes for quick and delicious no-bake recipes using raspberries!

Raspberry Pistachio Bark

I cannot wait to make this! This simple recipe has only three ingredients and takes less than 10 minutes to make! All you will need is dark chocolate, freeze-dried raspberries, and lightly salted pistachios! The salty nuts combined with the sweet fruit create a wonderful flavor! Plus, who doesn’t like chocolate?

To make this delicious bark, melt the dark chocolate and pour it into an even layer on a tray lined with parchment paper. Then, sprinkle the raspberries and pistachios on top and place the tray in the refrigerator. Once hard, break or cut the bark into chunks and serve!

You can create variations of this dessert by substituting Greek yogurt for dark chocolate. If using Greek yogurt, you’ll need to freeze the bark, not refrigerate it! Freeze-dried strawberry and blueberry would be a great addition to a mixed berry bark.

No-Bake Frozen Raspberry Pie

You’ll never want to bake a raspberry pie in the oven again after trying this recipe! Ditch the food processor and use a pre-made pie crust for an easier take on this recipe! Graham cracker, gluten-free, chocolate, or even an Oreo crust will taste great and cut down on prep time!

You will need 4 cups of fresh or frozen raspberries, 1 Tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, 2 cups of heavy cream, and 3/4 cup of sugar (divided) for the filling. First, mix the heavy cream and 2 tablespoons of sugar until stiff peaks form. Then, blend the remaining ingredients in a blender to create a raspberry puree! Fold the whipped cream into the raspberry mixture and pour into the crust! Let the pie freeze for about 8 hours, and enjoy your easy no-bake raspberry pie!
