Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cup dates, pitted
  • 1/4 Cup almond slices
  • 2 Tablespoons rolled oats, preferably Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free
  • Pinch of seat salt
  • 1 Cup thinly sliced strawberries

Directions

Pulse the dates, nuts, oats, and salt in a food processor until well combined. Press the date mixture into the bottom of a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan. Mash 1/4 cup of the strawberries with a fork and spread on top of the date mixture. Top with the remaining strawberries and slice into rectangles.

Strawberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Strawberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
