Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

Share

My favorite Strawberry Oatmeal Bars get their perfectly crumbly texture from an almond-flour-rolled oat mixture, giving them a nutty flavor. Using strawberry preserves allows the bottom crust to stay nice and crisp. I also add some extra fresh chopped strawberries in the filling for double the strawberry flavor. These bars are sweet, buttery, and perfect.

You can make these bars using a stand mixer or a hand mixer. First, combine the dry ingredients. Then mix in the softened butter and almond extract until the mixture resembles the coarse sand. Transfer one-half the prepared mixture into a parchment-lined square pan and press down into an even layer. Pre-bake the crust until golden. Spread the strawberry preserves over the crust and top with fresh strawberries. Sprinkle the remaining flour-oat mixture overtop the strawberries. Return to the oven and bake until the top is golden brown. Let cool completely before cutting into bars, then serve. Enjoy!

To make the Strawberry Oatmeal Bars, you will need the following ingredients:
