Last weekend my parents, a few siblings as well as my sister and her family all joined us for dinner. It was a lot of fun having everyone here. We had a lot of fun. I made these strawberry rhubarb bars...they were a hit. Definitely eating one for breakfast! Today being Father's Day I thought I would share this recipe, since Dad, my husband and his dad all love rhubarb.
Irresistible Strawberry Rhubarb Bars
adapted from: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2014/05/strawberry-rhubarb-crisp-bars/
3 cups quick oats
1 cup brown sugar
12 T butter, melted (I used 1 stick butter and 4T coconut oil)
2 cups rhubarb, diced small
2 cups (1lb worth) strawberries, diced small
Preheat oven to 375. In a bowl combine oats, brown sugar and butter. In another bowl combine remaining ingredients. Pour almost all (minus 1 cup) of oat mixture into the bottom of a well greased 9x13pan (line with greased parchment too). Press into the bottom to form a crust. Top with berries-rhubarb mixture. Sprinkle last cup of oat mixture on top. Bake about 30-40minutes. Cool on counter slightly. Cover and chill in fridge (store for later too). These bars slice better when cold, as well as tasting delicious!
