I am always playing with yummy snack recipes that the whole family will love. During this time of year, most of those snacks feature seasonal fruits. Now that our farmer’s market is back in full swing, we’ve been enjoying the locally grown strawberries – yum!

Sometimes I want something a little more hearty than just a handful of berries though. That’s where these Strawberry Oatmeal Bars come in. They have a crispy, buttery crust. It’s basically like a strawberry pie in bar form. It can’t get much better than that!

If you’re looking for a delicious snack your whole family will love, give these Gluten Free Strawberry Oatmeal Bars a try. For a different flavor, you can replace the strawberries with 2 cups of mixed of berries, cherries, apples or your favorite fruit.
