Healthy Strawberry Oatmeal Bars Recipe

Healthy-Strawberry-Oatmeal-Bars

My husband likes to eat cereal bars with his lunch.  However, they aren’t always super healthy.  We both love this recipe for Healthy Strawberry Oatmeal Bars.  They’re easy to make, and I know all the ingredients that are going into them.  They work great as a breakfast, snack, or even a dessert since they’re sweet.

If you prefer a different fruit, you can replace the strawberries with 2 cups of mixed berries, cherries, apples, or whichever fruit you prefer.  The crust is crispy and buttery.  If you need a gluten free recipe, you can substitute gluten free flour and gluten free rolled oats.Healthy-Strawberry-Oatmeal-Bars-Process

About the book:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes the first in a brand-new series about second chances—a dramatic story about a washed up baseball player, the love he left behind, and the miracles that might save them both.

When former national baseball star Tyler Ames suffers a career-ending injury, all he can think about is putting his life back together the way it was before. He has lost everyone he loves on his way to the big leagues. Then just when things seem to be turning around, Tyler hits rock bottom. Across the country, Tyler’s one true love Sami Dawson has moved on.

A series of small miracles leads Tyler to a maintenance job at a retirement home and a friendship with Virginia Hutcheson, an old woman with Alzheimer’s who strangely might have the answers he so desperately seeks.

A team of Angels Walking take on the mission to restore hope for Tyler, Sami, and Virginia. Can such small and seemingly insignificant actions of the unseen bring healing and redemption? And can the words of a stranger rekindle lost love? Every journey begins with a step.

It is time for the mission to begin…

Facing eviction, Rhea Morrison, a young grieving widow, must save her failing bakery. An unexpected turn of events lands her at a singles retreat where she meets Martin Lane.
