Instructions

Filling:

  • In a saucepan, combine rhubarb, strawberries, ½ cup sugar, corn starch, lemon juice and vanilla.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat to med-low and cook for about 8-10 minutes, or until rhubarb and strawberries have softened and the mix has thickened to coat the back of a spoon.
  • Let cool for 10-15 minutes.

Dough:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  • Mix in vanilla then add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix just until combined.
  • Add oats 1 cup at a time mixing slowly after each addition.

Bars:

  • Grease or line a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper leaving handles for easy removal. Grease the parchment paper.
  • Put a little over half of the dough on the bottom of prepared dish and pat down firmly and evenly.
  • Pour the strawberry-rhubarb filling over bottom and spread evenly.
  • Using a tablespoon, place flattened scoops of the remaining dough on top of filling making sure to leave some filling peeking through.
  • Bake 50-55 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Slice, serve and enjoy!
