May is National Strawberry Month. And what goes together better than spring and strawberries? We love fresh ripe strawberries right out of the container, in smoothies and shakes, atop shortcakes with fluffy whipped cream, covered in chocolate, and in many other ways.
Check out the 5 recipes for National Strawberry Month below for some tasty ways to enjoy strawberries this season.
1. Healthy Strawberry Oatmeal Bars
This recipe promises to be easy–one bowl, no mixer–and delicious. Described as a “cross between a soft bar cookie and a streusel-topped crumb bar,” this recipe relies on the natural sweetness of the strawberries and calls for only a bit of brown sugar. The vanilla glaze on top is optional but recommended for those who prefer the bars sweeter. Also, frozen strawberries work with this recipe, just in case you want to make them out of season.

This cake uses very few ingredients and is easy to prepare. It is a great way to use extra strawberries and even imperfect ones. The sugar sprinkled on top bakes into a crispy crust.
