Strawberry Fig Oatmeal Morning Bars

My new breakfast item! Perfect for the incoming Autumn weather! When the mornings start to get a little chillier, I usually like to get out my tub of oatmeal and make a fresh pot of oatmeal to start off my day. These Strawberry Fig Oatmeal Morning Bars are perfect for these chillier mornings! The combination of the oatmeal crust with the warm fruit filling all with a slightly sweet, but crunchy crumble is just the BEST! And it doesn't stop there, you can even double the portions and make this as a dessert and serve it with your favorite vanilla ice cream! YUM! Come join me as we make early mornings a little more enjoyable!
