HELLO MY HEALTHY LIFESTYLE LOVERS! Today I bring you the Strawberry Baked Oatmeal Bars and let me just say I may have outdone myself with this one. Of course, I always tell myself this when I come up with a new good recipe (#actconfident). So these little oat bars from heaven are purrrfect for a quick breakfast or snack. Why waste the morning in the kitchen when you can make a batch of these babies ahead of time, pull one out, heat it up, and enjoy it with your morning tea or coffee. What a great relax and wakeup time! Option two, you are in a rush grab the bar out of the fridge and run out the door...that works too. Either way, these bars are savory and oaty but have a hint of sweetness from the homemade strawberry jam topping. One bar is 133 calories and provides you with a healthy well balanced serving of fats/carbs/& protein. Enough of my jabbering...enjoy the recipe below!
