6 Ingredient Oatmeal Fresh Strawberry Bars

Hey y’all!

I have no Monday blues over here!  Today is a fabulous day for me because it’s my birthday. It seems like the 365 days since I shared my Birthday Popcorn recipe last year for my B-day have gone by in a flash… yet everything has changed.  This time last year I was pretty sure I’d never have kids and today I’m pregnant with twins.  Life is crazy sometimes!

The Hubs and I are on our way to Niagra Falls tomorrow for one of two mini-babymoons we’re taking.  On our way home, we’re stopping in Pittsburgh for our first baby shower with family.  Lot’s to celebrate this year!

I’ve shared my true love of strawberries before (10 Must-Try Fresh & Juicy Strawberry Recipes) so for my birthday I decided to put together a recipe using one of my favorite ingredients– strawberries!  The result is a delicious and super simple Fresh Strawberry Squares recipe.  They are also almond-y with chopped almonds AND almond butter inside!

These Fresh Strawberry Squares recipe are super soft, slightly crumbly and held together with almond butter and coconut oil!  Since they don’t have eggs to hold them together they are delicate and have more of a soft granola taste but they are super tasty and made with food you can feel good eating.

The almond and strawberry flavors match perfectly and are make for a nutrition-packed snack.   You even get a little bit of protein from the nutter butter and almonds!

AND I’m not sure how it could be, but If strawberries aren’t your jam you could even sub another fruit in the bar.

    These look so good! I love that they only take 6 ingredients to make (and I have pretty much everything already! :D!)!

    Hope you had a wonderful birthday! I’m sorry that I missed it! <3

    These look really yummy, but I wonder if you can sub something in for coconut oil. My nutritionist says it is really bad for your heart, so I might need something else subbed for that. Any ideas?

    These sound delicious! Do you think you can substitute agave for honey without losing consistency?
    Happy Birthday!
