Strawberries ‘n Cream Oatmeal Bars – These sweet, fruity, and buttery bars make a delicious after-dinner treat and are the perfect way to use up your leftover strawberry jam from last season.
Last June I was a little overzealous when it came to making Strawberry Jam. What can I say? I was strawberry picking and I went a little nuts when I saw that field of juicy, fresh, bright-red berries. Since my family couldn’t possibly eat through them all, and I have very limited freezer space, the only sensible thing to do was to make lots and lots of jam. As a result, I ended up with an entire pantry shelf stacked high with jam jars – so many that I didn’t even bother counting. Despite gifting my jam at Christmas and making my little one an unlimited supply of PB&J and toast with jam, I still have a handful of jars to use up until strawberries come back in season again.
Because of my strawberry jam excess, I started making these Strawberries ‘n Cream Oatmeal Bars. They have since become a favorite of my husband’s. They are sweet, buttery, and fruity, topped with the creaminess of white chocolate. Perfect for enjoying with a cup of tea.
The best thing about theses bars is that they come together so easily. The dough is pretty basic, and then it just takes a layer of strawberry jam and a sprinkling of almonds and white chocolate.
Enjoy warm and soft, but they’re still good and gooey even after they’ve cooled!
