  • for strawberry topping

    2 cups (330 grams) finely minced fresh or frozen strawberries
    1 tablespoon honey
    1/4 medium lemon, juiced
    for banana oat bars

    2 cups (160 grams) uncooked rolled oats, divided (certified gluten-free if necessary)
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    2 teaspoons cinnamon
    2 medium (260 grams) ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 tablespoons honey, divided

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

    Combine strawberries with 1 tablespoon honey and lemon juice (note: if using frozen strawberries, thaw first). Toss with a spoon until well combined. Set mixture aside to chill in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes.

    In a food processor, process 1 cup rolled oats until it reaches a flour consistency and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining 1 cup rolled oats, baking powder, cinnamon, mashed banana, vanilla extract and ramining 1 tablespoon honey. Stir with a spoon until well combined.

  • Line an 8-inch by 8-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Transfer one-half to two-thirds of oat mixture into the baking dish and press into dish with a spatula.

    Strain liquid from strawberry mixture and spread berries in a single layer over the oats in the baking dish. Crumble remaining oat mixture on top of the strawberry layer.

    Bake the bars for 30-35 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Remove and cool before cutting into bars.

  • BUDGET TIP: Fresh berries too expensive? Buy a jar of low- or no-sugar jam at your local supermarket and use it in place of the strawberry topping.
