Gluten-free Raspberry Layer Bars

Raspberry Layer Bars RecipeTrader Joes had organic fresh raspberries on sale last week and I just couldn’t resist.  Normally, I only purchase fresh from the farm stand in season, or pick my own in the late summer or fall.  I wanted to create a special treat with these little jewels and decided to develop a raspberry bar.  I wanted to feature the fresh whole fruit, not just a sugary jam.  I think you’ll be as pleased as I  (and my kids) am with the resulting recipe.  Keep in mind this is a treat and should be a mindful indulgence!

  1. I have all those ingredients on hand except millet flour – what could I sub for that? Also, I would sub arrowroot for the cornstarch (to stay away from grains and GMO’s).
