Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

Jude starts school in a week which means busy mornings. This year I’m hoping to be better prepared for school morning breakfasts by creating some make-ahead breakfast items like these Strawberry Oatmeal Bars.


Strawberry Oatmeal Bars


  • 1.75 sticks cold butter cut into pieces
  • 1.5 Cups Flour
  • 1.5 Cups Oats
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 10 oz. strawberry preserves


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Butter the bottom of a 9 X 13 baking dish
  3. In a large bowl mix together flour, oats, brown sugar baking powder and salt.
  4. Add butter to oat mixture and cut in with a pastry cutter or fork until small crumbles are formed throughout.
  5. Pour half of the oat mixture along the bottom of the pan and spread evenly.
  6. Then spread evenly the preserves over top  of the oat mixture.
  7. Top with the remaining oat mixture spreading evenly across the top covering the preserves.
  8. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes
  9. Allow to fully cool before cutting into bars.

I think these make for the perfect on-the-go breakfast. If you bake them the night before and store them in an air tight container you will have breakfast waiting for you when you wake up.
