Oatmeal fruit squares
These oatmeal fruit squares are beyond easy, and they’re good for you too because there’s oatmeal in them, right!?
These are such a hit in my house that I made these squares 3 times this week. The filling is just a matter of what fruit you have in your kitchen, mix it up or do half and half. I find I never have enough of one fruit so I improvise and sometimes I even use a fruity jam.  My favourite fruit to use is fresh or frozen blueberries or black cherries.

Oatmeal Fruit Squares

Course: Dessert, Snack


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 ½ cups butter cubed
  • 2 ½ cups fruit blueberries, cherries, peaches, raspberries, strawberries


  • Butter a 9” X 13” baking pan, or line it with parchment paper. (Parchment paper makes it easier to lift out the squares for cutting) Put all ingredients in a bowl. Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut butter into the dry ingredients into tiny bits like squished peas. Press a little more than half of the oatmeal mixture into the baking pan. Sprinkle your choice of fruit on the bottom layer, use more fruit if needed to cover bottom. Press the remaining oatmeal mixture on top.
  • Bake at 325°F for 50-55 minutes until top is lightly browned. Store leftover squares in the fridge or freeze.

    Blueberries are not my favourite – can they be replaced by other fruits? What would you recommend?

    1. Definitely! Raspberries, cherries or chopped peaches all work nicely.
