Strawberry Oatmeal Bars...

Elizabeth (now 5 1/2, can you believe it??) really enjoys watching cooking shows.  Her favorite?  Pioneer Woman!!!  This past Saturday, Ree made Strawberry Oatmeal Bars.  Elizabeth said we just HAD to make them, so last night we did! 

These are super simple and delicious!  All of us love them and this recipe WILL be repeated many times, I can tell!  This time we used strawberry preserves, but I also plan on making this with raspberry and apricot preserves, too!

Strawberry Oatmeal Bars


  • 1 3/4 sticks salted butter, cut into pieces, plus more for greasing pan
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • One 10 to 12-ounce jar strawberry preserves


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-by-13-inch rectangular pan.

Mix together the butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Press half the oat mixture into the prepared pan. Spread with the strawberry preserves. Sprinkle the other half of the oat mixture over the top and pat lightly. Bake until light brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely, and then cut into squares.

Made mine in the 9x13 the recipe says and it didnt have enough crust at all. I did some digging, found Ree's post on her blog and she uses an 8x8.. that would have worked much better! :)
