Hey Guys! I’m so excited to share with you my newest found favorite treat! Strawberry Oatmeal Bars are perfectly divine, (i’m totally in love=addicted to them) – and i hope you will be too! 😉
- 1-3/4 stick Cold Butter, Cut Into Pieces
- 1-1/2 cup All-purpose Flour
- 1-1/2 cup Oats (quick Or Regular)
- 1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1 jar (10 To 12 Ounce) Strawberry (or any) Preserves (whip them with a spoon first to make them easier to spread!)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 x 13 or 8 x 10 baking dish.
Mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle half the mixture into the pan and pat lightly to pack it a little tight. Spoon strawberry preserves evenly over the surface, then use a dinner knife to carefully spread it around. Sprinkle the other half of the oat mixture over the top and pat lightly again. Bake until light golden brown on top, about 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool in pan. When cool, cut into squares and serve.
