A few weeks ago I made a apple and rhubarb crumble. I had half a bag of rolled oats so wanted to make something with them. I therefore decided to make some form of oat bars. They taste great and make a perfect snack or even a quick dessert.
When deciding on flavours I wanted to have a couple of fruits and not just the one. It’s important to match the fruits. Ones that don’t go well together can really ruin the oat bar.
I already had apples so this was going to be the first fruit. The second fruit I decided to add in was strawberries, they go well with apples and I love them.
The first thing I did was prepared the fruit. The apples needed peeling, coring and then chopped into 1cm cubes. The strawberries were then quartered to be roughly the same size. If you do have big strawberries you may want to cut them a little smaller.
I then preheated the oven at 180 degrees and placed some parchment in a square tin.
In a bowl add the flour, sugar, oats and butter. Get your hands stuck in there and continue to mix with your hands. You want to continue mixing it until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Empty ⅔ of the crumb mixture into the square tin and press down into the sides and corner. Press this down firmly to form the base of the oat bar. Sprinkle in the apples and strawberries to make sure it’s covered in fruit.
Next add the remaining crumble mixture and press down to make sure all fruit is covered.
Pop in the oven and cook for about 25-30 minutes, or until cooked.
When cooked take it out of the oven and put onto a wire wrack to cool.
As I said before this Strawberry and Apple Oat bar recipe is perfect as a snack bar. It does also make a really nice dessert. Just add some cream, custard or ice cream to it and enjoy!
