I love these bars for so many reasons. First of all, they taste AWESOME! Hearty oats and sweet juicy strawberries make really amazing combo. Easy Skinny Strawberry Oatmeal Bars are egg-free, in case you’re looking for that kind of recipe.
Even better is that, they are so simple to make. Bottom layer and topping are made from one mixture. Just whisk together dry ingredients with melted coconut oil and press it in the bottom of the pan.You don’t even need a mixer for this recipe. Also you don’t have to make the filling in a separate bowl. Just scatter diced strawberries, sprinkle with sugar, corn starch, lemon juice and topped with reserved crumbs.
In just a couple of minutes your bars are ready to go in the oven and you won’t be overwhelmed with a bunch of dirty dishes. It can’t be much easier than that, right?! After 45 minutes you’ll have the best bars you’ve ever tried.
And the last but not the least, you can eat these Easy Skinny Strawberry Oatmeal Bars without feeling guilt. They are healthy and skinny!!! The recipe use coconut oil instead of butter, whole wheat flour and light brown sugar instead white flour and sugar. And that doesn’t make these bars less tasty. Actually you can’t even tell that this is lighter and healthier version of classic dessert.
Easy Skinny Strawberry Oatmeal Bars are so delicious. The bottom layer is like soft and chewy oatmeal cookie with a hint of cinnamon and ginger and the topping is yummy and crunchy streusel. Sweet and juicy strawberry filling is simply mouthwatering. It makes perfect balance with hearty oats.
Easy Skinny Strawberry Oatmeal Bars are full of flavor and taste great on their own, but if you are looking for a really sweet treat that doesn’t have to be too skinny you can drizzle them with vanilla glaze. I personally like them even more without the glaze. Strawberries make them sweet enough for my taste, but it’s up to you.
