Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

These Strawberry and Oatmeal Bars have  the goodness of fresh strawberries with a hint of lime, deep flavour from whole wheat flour and chewyness of oatmeal! Do you need any more convincing??

Most of the recipes we come across are made with refined flour. But here I have added whole wheat flour, which really brings out the earthy flavour! I have also used brown sugar which give these bars an amazing nutty flavour which we all love!

For the perfect chewy texture it is recommended to use Rolled or Old Fashioned Oats (click here to buy) , if not available you can use regular quick oats even though the chewiness will get a bit compromised!

So here is how to make it!
