Strawberry Peach Streusel Bars

Strawberry Peach Streusel Bars Recipe l www.a-kitchen-addiction.com

It appears that I’ve gone from hoarding blueberries, to hoarding strawberries and peaches! When I took inventory of my fruit the other day, I realized that I needed to find a way to use the fruit other than just eating it fresh.

I first thought about making a strawberry peach crumble, but why only have the oat streusel crust on top when you can have it on top and bottom?

So, instead of making another crumble, I made bars.

Making “pie bars” is one of my favorite ways to enjoy the flavors of pie without all of the extra preparation and baking time. These bars taste just like a fresh strawberry peach streusel pie, just with extra streusel!

The filling has a generous amount of cinnamon and nutmeg with a hint of ginger added in.

The buttery oat streusel is just thick enough on the top and bottom to add a nutty richness to the bars, but not too thick that it overpowers the flavors of the fresh fruit.

So, if you find yourself with too many peaches and strawberries to eat fresh (or am I the only one?), these strawberry peach streusel bars are a great solution!

Serve warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream for a summer dessert at your next bbq or make a bag lunch more exciting by packing them to go!

I just made these for the second time. They are delicious! And super easy to make. I got the sweetest end-of-the-summer peaches and strawberries, and though I just wanted to eat them immediately, I remembered how flavorful this recipe was, and made the nice fruit last a bit longer. Thanks for a great recipe!
