Strawberry Oat breakfast bars

We made these for breakfast this morning. Very quick to make and worth every bite!!

Strawberry Oat Breakfast Bars

1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1 egg
1C fresh or frozen strawberries (or berry of your choice)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 9x9 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, stir together oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together brown sugar and margarine. Beat in egg. Stir mixtures together just until blended. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of pan comes out clean.

These are best served with milk as mine turned out a little dry. But they have a very yummy taste and are quite filling!! You could also omit the berries all together if you wanted. My husband suggested powdered sugar on top after wards. Yummy either way!!!

Do you stir the berries into the oat mixture, or is there a layer of berries in between oats?

i used frozen berries, drained the excess juice and just added them to the mix. Thanks for stopping by!!

I think I'll try this without berries first. My kids are funny about cooked fruit. 3 more days till Harry Potter!!!!!
