strawberry rhubarb bars!

Hooray! Rhubarb is in season – or at least it seemed that way at the grocery store…I couldn’t tell you a single thing about rhubarb, besides that it goes well with strawberries. I’m not sure what it tastes like on it’s own, I’m not sure if it is a fruit or a veggie and without being labeled at the store, I would have had no idea it was there. I’m glad I saw it, though, because I whipped up some delicious mix in pan strawberry rhubarb bars! Since you make it all in the pan, there is very little clean up and that means more time to sit and savor! They’re delicious on their own, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or make a nice breakfast with some plain yogurt. No matter how you serve them, they’re sure to please!

What you need:

  • 1 cup oats
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 tbs unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1/2 cup rhubarb, diced
  • 1 1/2 cup strawberries, diced

Preheat your oven to 375. Line an 8×8 pan with parchment. Combine oats, flour, sugar and salt in pan and mix. Pour in melted butter and combine with hands until clumps begin to emerge. Scoop out 1/2 cup of the mixture and set aside. Press the rest down firmly and evenly in the pan. Scatter the strawberry and rhubarb on top of the crumb crust and sprinkle cornstarch and sugar evenly on top. Sprinkle your remaining crumb mixture on top as well. Bake for 35 mins. Allow to cool in pan. ENJOY!
