Strawberry Oatmeal Bars — The New Girl

by in Healthy Recipes, April 4, 2013

I don’t have to tell you how breakfast is the most important meal of the day; you’ve heard it before. And I’m not here with a quick and easy recipe to whip together on the fly because I hardly have time to pour myself a bowl of cereal (and I don’t even have kids). Weekday mornings are rough, but Ree’s Strawberry Oatmeal Bars make them better.

I can’t get enough of The Pioneer Woman these days. Her recipes are both incredibly scrumptious and pleasingly straightforward. This one is no exception; there’s no stress or kitchen mess involved. I had all of the ingredients in my pantry and fridge already, and prep work took no longer than 10 minutes total.

More importantly, these grab-and-go treats are quite yummy.  They’re not cookies, nor are they granola bars. Upon first bite, I was reminded of a summertime strawberry crumble. And for me, that’s pretty amazing considering we’re talking about breakfast.

With some fruit and a glass of milk, this recipe has Healthy Eats stamp of approval for a well-balanced morning meal. The sweet jam filling and streusel layers will win over adults and kids alike. Forget packaged cereal bars or oatmeal packets. Make strawberry oatmeal bars tonight, and enjoy an extra 10 minutes in bed tomorrow.

Here are a few things to consider before making this recipe:

  • I used unsalted butter and was very happy with the end result.
  • The butter I used was close to room temperature. This, along with the quick-cooking oats, made for a finer crumb.
  • I suggest keeping a bar on hand for a late afternoon pick-me-up.
