Having ideas on what to make next is not really my problem. My problem is my brain is overwhelmed by the sheer variety of recipes that could be made, and all the incredible ideas I see all around me. It overwhelms me to the point of just being unable to motivate myself to pick anything at all. Also, I am trying to watch what I eat (not just as I put it in my mouth), so I don’t want to make wonderful things that are calorie bombs that I wont be able to enjoy. Thanks to my helpful blogger friends, a recipe for jam and oatmeal bars was the overwhelming vote for the next recipe. I am thrilled to say, that here I have a heavenly recipe for White Chocolate Strawberry Oatmeal Bars. They are chewy, sweet, hearty, and the lemon peel gives them that little something extra that they would be missing otherwise.
My husband has given them his seal of approval, and that means the world to me when it is something sweeter because he is much more a savory foods kind of person. These bars are so simple to make, and only take a few ingredients. Easy enough even that I was able to have my 3-year-old come help me make them, and quick enough that he didn’t start devolving into trouble making! Huge success all around. I will definitely be making these for bake sales, breakfasts, gifts, everything!
