Gluten-Free Strawberry Oat Bars

I am so excited! The launch of Milo and Oats has been a long time coming. It’s been about 7 years in the making actually…even though I didn’t know it at the time! Ever since I realized my baby boy had food allergies. Now I have three boys with food allergies, but more on that later. For now, I’m excited to start sharing some easy and family-friendly gluten-free recipes with you.

These soft and sweet bars are the perfect summery treat! Use homemade strawberry jam to make them even MORE delicious!

My hope is that if you are new to gluten-free recipes you’ll be able to breathe a sigh of relief here. All of these recipes are for you! I want them to be approachable and, more importantly, delicious! I will be sharing my favorite homemade gluten-free blend with you soon, but for these bars you may use any store-bought gluten-free blend. One of my favorites is Namaste’s Perfect Flour Blend. I buy mine at Costco. These bars come together in minutes! So easy. I used fresh homemade strawberry jam for the filling, but you can use your favorite variety.

I hope you’ll love these delicious, summery bars!
