I’m currently standing in my kitchen while the movers move around me, packing up my furniture and moving boxes filled with everything I own. The contents of my life are getting loaded into the moving truck, ready to be driven down to San Diego. It’s weird, and sad, and a little bit surreal.

As excited as I am to move back to San Diego, it feels so bizarre to be leaving Washington after having spent the past five years here, and I’m extra sad to be leaving my apartment. I love my kitchen and my shooting area and seeing my photography set-up in boxes makes me nostalgic already. I can’t believe another baked good won’t be coming out of this kitchen!

Luckily, I still have plenty of recipes that I’ve made in the past few weeks in preparation for the move, and I can’t wait to share them all with you in the next few weeks. First up: strawberry oatmeal crumble bars!!

These strawberry oatmeal crumble bars got rave reviews! I used the first-of-the-season farmer’s market fresh strawberries, and they were so sweet and juicy on their own, which made these bars that much more phenomenal.

Because nobody has the time to fuss over making a crust, a filling, and a crumble topping, this crust recipes doubles as both the crust and the crumble top. It’s made with almond flour and oats, which make it super hearty and reminiscent of the best fruity oatmeal crumbles.

I used T-Sugar’s Cassonade Sugar to sweeten the crust and crumble – it’s similar to brown sugar, but with a deeper, richer, more caramel-y flavor. You don’t need too much – just enough to sweet the crust while still letting the sweetness of the strawberries shine! I tossed some chopped almonds into the crust/crumble mixture as well, to add a bit of extra crunch.

After the bars are assembled and baked, waiting for them to cool is the hardest part. But unfortunately, it’s also essential if you don’t want to bars to fall apart – the crust is crumbly when warm, so wait for it to cool and set before slicing into these. If you want to add a bit of extra pizzazz, give a sprinkle of powdered sugar on top! I gave a spin of T-Sugars Powdered Sugar Mill on top of these bars and it was the perfect thing to finish them off.
