Strawberries are in season, so you can buy plenty of them. The problem is that with just the two of us, they get just beyond ripe before we can eat them.
I found this recipe on diet.com for strawberry oat bars that looked like the perfect solution to my overripe strawberries.
I’m into using real butter these days. The calories in butter are the same as margarine, but the difference is that I know where the ingredients came from. I’d just rather use wholesome ingredients in my cooking.
Anyway, the only thing I added to my recipe was 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and a dollop of Greek yogurt. The bars came out a bit crumbly, but very tasty.
- ½ cup butter
- ½ cup walnuts, chopped
- 1 cup flour
- ¾ cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ? tsp nutmeg
- 1 ½ cups oatmeal
- 12 ounces strawberries
- 4 tablespoons low fat milk
- Preheat oven to 400 F. Coat a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
- Cream butter and sugar. Mix in flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking soda; blend well.
- Stir in oatmeal. If mixture is too dry, add milk by tablespoonfuls until moist enough to press half the mixture into pan; bake 10 minutes.
- Spread strawberries over cooled mixture and sprinkle with remaining oatmeal mixture. Sprinkle and press walnuts onto the top.
- Bake 20-25 minutes. Cool 5 minutes. Cut into 24 bars.
