Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

Do you ever over indulge in sweets and feel completely guilty afterward? Or do you have kids and are trying to give them healthier snack alternatives? But let’s face it, kids know that there’s better snacks out there than an apple. They’ll reject anything that is even semi-healthy. 

But don’t fret, I have good news. A healthy snack bar that even kids will love (just don’t tell them it’s healthy and they won’t even know). And if kids love it then you know us adults will love it as well. Not only are they delicious they’re only 100 calories per bar! 

These bars are sort of a cross between a cookie and a streusel, with a sugary buttery crumble topping.

This recipe has got to be one of the easiest recipes ever. And I mean super easy. It’s all mixed together in one bowl. The butter is melted, you don’t have to wait for the butter to become room temperature. Or attempt to soften it in the microwave (oh how many times have I accidentally melted it and ruined my whole recipe). 

The strawberries are, of course, better if they are fresh but they don’t have to be. You can use frozen ones as well. Just let them thaw out before using. 

If you can’t eat gluten or dairy there are substitutions for that as well. This recipe suggests coconut oil instead of butter and gluten free oats instead of regular ones. 

I can’t wait to make this recipe. Considering it’s so easy, I’ll probably end up making it a lot.
