Strawberry Oatmeal Bars



By Kate Miller

Oatmeal is good for you, and should be incorporated as part of a healthy diet. If oatmeal porridge sounds boring and doesn't quite appeal, why not give this simple recipe a go? Homemade strawberry oat bars are not only quick to make, they also cost very little.

Make a batch over the weekends, and you'll enjoy delicious grab-and-go breakfast bars on weekday mornings, or as quick afternoon snacks.

What's really amazing about this recipe is its versatility. Feel free to add in shredded coconut, or chopped nuts such as almonds and cashews.

You can substitute strawberry jam with any flavor of jam that you fancy. Raspberry, blackberry or apricot jam taste phenomenal!

The strawberry jam I used is homemade, so that makes my oatmeal bars healthier. Less sweet and just nice with a cup of rooiboos tea.

Strawberry Jam Bars Recipe


1 cup flour

1 cup rolled oats (quick cooking)

½ cup butter, softened

⅓ cup light brown sugar

¼ teaspoon baking powder

teaspoon salt

¾ cup strawberry jam


How to make strawberry oatmeal bars


1. Preheat your oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a square (8"x8") pan with butter or nonstick spray. Or, line it with aluminum foil.


2. Place flour, oats, butter. sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bow. Mix all ingredients well until crumbly.


3. Measure out 2 cups of the mixture, and press it into the bottom of your pan.


4. Use your hands or a spoon to help you cover the entire bottom.


5. Next, spread strawberry jam evenly on top of the crust.


6. Take the remaining mixture and spread it over the strawberry jam, pressing it down lightly.


7. Pop the pan into the preheated oven. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.


8. Remove the pan from oven and cool for 15 minutes. Cut into bars, and store in an air-tight container.


Now, your homemade strawberry oat bars are ready to be enjoyed!
