strawberry oat bars.

I stumbled across these strawberry oat bars in a magazine I bought at the airport. Well, this meant that I was left the whole trip craving the strawberry goodness that the pictures in the magazine offered. Once I returned back to my early 90's kitchen, I whipped up these for breakfast. They were a nice little switch from the "usual" breakfast blah that I am sometimes guilty of.

 1. Pulse dates, nuts, oats, and salt in a food processor until combined. 

2. Press the date mixture into the bottom of a 9x5 loaf pan. 

3. Mash half of the strawberries (the food processor makes this easy) and spread them on top of the date mixture. Top with the remaining strawberries. Slice into rectangles.
