Sometimes I get so overwhelmed; I just spin in circles. My “to do” list is a mile long, and nothing seems to be getting “to done.”  Gracie, my oldest baby, wisely told me to make a to do list. Which I did…and misplaced. It has been that kind of month for me. I swear it has. When all else fails….food! Strawberry Oatmeal Bars seemed like a winning choice!

I know I used to be an organized person. Really, I swear I did. My brain just doesn’t compute like it used to. I am pretty sure my brain is on overload. I need to upgrade my processor like I had to do on my computer. 😉

I have been getting better about delegating chores. Which has helped a ton!  It is a process, but I am getting there. I delegated the cleaning of the kitchen after I made these bars so I could enjoy one….see, I am getting the hang of this.  I feel kinda of sorry because I am a messy baker, but hey they enjoy the treats too.

Finally the rest of the crumble and into a 375-degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes.  You just want the crumb topping to start toasting and the fruit to be happy and bubbly.

My favorite and probably unnecessary part of this recipe; the glaze! Make a quick glaze to drizzle on these when they cool. Just look at it….mmmm.

Slice into bars and serve. You can slice them as small or as big as you want them.  You can eliminate the glaze and serve them for breakfast…or add the glaze and serve them for breakfast. 😉 They also make a super tasty dessert…with a little vanilla ice cream; HEAVENLY!
