These beauties got so many compliments on their way out the door at Costco.  I have never had that happen before, but three separate people stopped me to talk about my berries.

You know you really want to dig into this fresh sweet oatmeal bread!!!  It is the FIRST recipe that popped into my head as I grabbed a package of berries for my cart.  Unfortunately since it is Passover, I will be enjoying some different snacks this week.

So, I topped my salads and pancakes with fresh chopped strawberries.  I swear, they were some of the best strawberries that I have ever eaten!  I even went back to Costco on Monday to get another package, but they were SOLD OUT.  Soo sad!

But YOU should definitely be baking up some of this bread this week!  Or make a Fruit Salsa!

 

Do you buy berries at Costco?  How do you like to eat your strawberries?

 

 

 

Oatmeal Strawberry Bread

Recipe from AllRecipes.com

 

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

2 cups white sugar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups vegetable oil

4 eggs

1 1/4 pounds fresh strawberries, sliced

1/4 cup rolled oats

 

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 7×3 inch loaf pans.

2. Stir together the flour, 1 1/2 cups rolled oats, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil and eggs; stir into flour mixture until just moistened. Fold in strawberries. Pour into the prepared loaf pans, and sprinkle the tops with the remaining 1/4 cup of rolled oats.

3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool the strawberry bread in the pans for 5 minutes before cooling completely on a wire rack.
