These nutty strawberry oat bars are a true treat for all strawberry lovers. Healthy oats crust topped with homemade strawberry filling and sprinkled generously with nutty buttery crunch topping make these oat bars a perfect treat any time of the day.
I shared a recipe on how to make homemade strawberry filling in another post not too long ago. And I am sharing on this page now one delightful treat that can be made using the filling as an ingredient and it is none other than my nutty strawberry oat bars.
These bars make a lovely treat anytime of the day, even for breakfast. And they are so easy and fast to put together that this would make a great treat if you need to whip up a dessert or tea time treat in a short period of time. Having the strawberry filling made ahead of time (like me, I have it ready in the fridge) would save even more time, but if you don't, both the strawberry filling and the oat bars can be whipped up within an hour.
Here is how I made these gorgeous strawberry oat bars.
I started by preparing the crust. I measured my flour, instant oats, brown sugar, salt, almond flour into a bowl and mixed them all with a whisk.
Next, I added my butter (at room temperature) and mixed it in to the flour mixture with my mixer. At this point, the dough would be soft and of a cookie dough consistency.
I saved ½ cup of the crust and pressed the remaining crust into my lined loaf tin and made sure the sides were slightly higher compared to the center. This is to contain my strawberry filling and make sure it does not overflow on the sides.
Next was the strawberry filling. I filled my crust until it was the same level as the sides of the crust.
And finally, I topped the filling with my nutty crumb mix. To make the mix, I used the ½ cup crust I saved earlier, mixed it with 3 tablespoons of dry roasted almond nibs and sprinkled it evenly all over the strawberry topping. The crust dough, when mixed with the almond nibs, turned to a crumbly consistency and that was how I sprinkled it all over the oat bar.
I baked the bar for 25 minutes until the top turned golden brown. And this was how the strawberry oat bar looked like once it was fully baked.
And I let the bar cool down to room temperature before cutting it into smaller bars.
