I baked my strawberry oat bars in a small rectangular pan. If you’d like to make a larger amount of these bars, then double the ingredients and make them in a slightly bigger tin. Hope you enjoy! 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 125g butter
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F and line a small baking tin with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, oats, cinnamon, salt and sugar. Add the butter and honey and combine everything well. The mixture should be moist and crumbly.
  3. Place 2/3 of the mixture onto the bottom of the pan and firmly press it down with your hands.
  4. Slice the strawberries into halves and place them on top of the mixture.
  5. Evenly sprinkle the remaining oat mixture on top of the strawberries and press down gently.
  6. Bake for about 25-30 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
