- 1-1/2 cup Oatmeal (I like using Quaker Oats)

How To Make Strawberry Oatmeal Bars
- Preheat oven to 350 F
- Start by washing, hulling and cutting your strawberries. Combine, lemon, vanilla, granulated sugar, and corn starch. Set the bowl to the side until needed.
- Mix your dry flour mixture for the crust and crumble in a large bowl. (Whole Wheat Flour, a dash of salt, baking powder, oatmeal, light or golden brown sugar, and softened butter. Adding a little bit of vanilla or honey until crumbly, not wet!)
- After it is mixed remove one cup and reserve for the crumb topping. (just add it to a small bowl)
- Press the flour mixture (minus 1 cup for the crumb topping) into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. (You can either spray it with Pam or line it with parchment paper and spray it with Pam).
- Next, add your strawberry mixture onto the pressed crust in the baking dish.
- Spread the strawberries over the top of the crust evenly.
- Lastly, add the reserved crumb topping over the strawberries. Make sure to cover the entire top of the strawberries all the way to the edges.
- Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes.
- Let cool, cut and serve. If you used parchment paper, let cool slightly, pull out and cool then cut.
