Easy to make
And this raspberry sauce is easy to make. No straining, blending, or mashing. Just let the oven do all the work for you.
The fresh raspberries break down as they roast. Turning them from round orbs of whole fruit to soft pieces in a nice sauce.
Raspberries crops can produce from early summer to fall. In the United States, raspberries typically peak during June in the South, and in July in the North.
Though nowadays, I can find raspberries in the stores almost year-round.
Of course, there’s nothing like a delicious, tart and juicy, in-season raspberry! So, fortunately, that’s right about now!
How to serve
It’s the perfect homemade sauce for spooning onto and swirling into your morning Greek yogurt.
It’s delicious over vanilla or chocolate ice cream.
Spoon it on a pound cake for a special oomph.
Serve it over cheesecake. Or, better yet, bake a swirl of it in the cheesecake!
Bake up a tray of brownies, and make them extra special by swirling this sauce into the batter!
Well, really it’s great topping over any desserts! Aren’t chocolate and raspberries just one of the most magical combinations?
Add a dollop to your morning pancakes or waffles! The fresh twist will perk you right up.

Is this raspberry sauce healthy?
Healthy is always in the eye of the beholder. So, you’ll have to judge for yourself. I do include a recipe nutrition analysis for you on the recipe card.
But this vegan & gluten-free recipe has no processed sugars, and no thickeners (like cornstarch) or additives.
It’s made with just 4 simple ingredients: fresh raspberries, maple syrup, a little olive oil, and a tiny bit of salt. That’s it.
In my opinion, it’s pretty darn healthy. And so delicious!

Roasted Raspberry Sauce Recipe
Roasted Raspberry Sauce
- Place a rack in the middle of the oven, and preheat to 350° F.
- Add the raspberries to a small oven proof baking dish, like a ramekin.
- In a separate small bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, olive oil, and salt. Pour syrup mixture over berries and very gently toss to coat.
- Roast for 20 minutes, or until the berry juices thicken and the raspberries start to fall apart, but not long enough for the juices to burn.
