How To Make Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

Here’s an overview of how to make it with the full recipe instructions at the bottom of this blog post.

  1. Prep – Wash and chop the strawberries. Place two strips of parchment paper in a square baking dish in opposite directions. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Mix Oat Crumble – Mix together the rolled oats, flour, sugar, ginger, cinnamon and salt. Melt butter in the microwave then stir into oats.
  3. Press, Layer, Bake – Reserve ½ cup of oat mixture, and press the rest into the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle strawberries, cornstarch, lemon juice and sugar on top. Add the last ½ cup of oats. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until oats begin to turn golden brown.

Storage: Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days or frozen for up to 3 months. Just thaw in the fridge and reheat in the oven to serve.
