Strawberry Oatmeal Crumble Bars

Sometime back I had posted the recipe for Apple Crumble and had got some great feedback from people who tried it out. So when I saw strawberries in the stores, wanted to try out something similar with these lovely fruits too. There are definitely a few changes to this from how I made the apple crumble. I wanted to make these into bars, which can be eaten like a granola bar. But these do crumble if you keep it out of the refrigerator for a while, hence the name crumble bars..:)
