Strawberry Crumble Blondie Bars

I created these for a picnic at one of our favorite local parks. We loaded up the picnic basket with Quinoa salad, veggie straws, spicy hummus and sweet peppers for dipping. And loaded up the car with friends and dogs and a few of these delicious summery bars in the basket to enjoy by the lake. The leftover bars were reminiscent of a strawberry crumble when we added a scoop of vanilla coconut ice cream on top.     Strawberry Blondie Bars Recipe Type: Dessert Author: CowgirlBeans Ingredients Dry 2 cups Oats 1½ cup Flour 1/2 cup Sugar 1/2 cup Brown Sugar 1 tsp Baking Powder ½ tsp Baking Soda ½ tsp Salt Wet 1/4 cup Earth Balance 1/4 cup coconut oil 1 ripe...

However, when The Sconeage Bakery sent me a sample box with full sized packages of their Fresh Roasted Granola products I was happy to taste! They included a Blueberry Cranberry Granola bar, a Chocolate Granola Bar and a 1 lb. container of their Fresh Roasted Blueberry Cranberry...
