What do you do when organic strawberries go on sale? you buy 10 boxes, I mean, c’mon, don’t you? You see, I live with a couple of strawberry enthusiasts so regularly buying in bulk and freezing is a must.
After a hectic week of caring for a sick toddler and mastering the art of functioning on no sleep, I was overdue for some “me” time. This normally involves a relaxing pedicure, body massage, or purse shopping. This time however, I just wanted to be left alone, in the kitchen, to bake up whatever my little heart desired. My husband walked passed me looking down at the oatmeal in the measuring cup and huffed “Oh God, not another healthy dessert”. Boy was he going to be eating his words soon…oh and this dessert.
These strawberry oatmeal cluster bars tasted absolutely divine. It’s hard to believe that they are clean and have no preservatives. Sure, they aren’t the healthiest as I did use a small amount of sugar, but I tried my best to use better options in the recipe, as per the usual. I also did not use any dairy products for this recipe so it is vegan friendly.
I hope you try making these yourself and I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!
