Oats of Flavor

Creating tasty desserts in the summertime calls for a little innovation. The dense and heavy treats of that accompany winter get replaced with lighter, fresher options. One delicious example of a perfect summertime post-dinner dessert is the Strawberry Rhubarb Oatmeal Bar. The indescribably good taste of the crumbly cookie-like crust comes from a combination of nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar and other spices. Rolled oats get thrown in the mix for a bit of added texture. The delicious tangy swirl is made from sliced rhubarb and fresh strawberries as well as lemon juice and vanilla for extra flavor. All of this helps to provide a lighter alternative to your typical go-to desserts. A little time in the oven will have these chewy treats ready for you to devour.
