Cooking with Cannabutter: Strawberry Bars

Granola and oatmeal bars make a sweet and generally healthier treat than some other quick on-the-go type snacks – especially when you control the ingredients by making them yourself. These Strawberry Bars are sweet, filling and can provide a nice afternoon energy boost – and they taste great with both milk and coffee.

The best part? You don’t need to wait hours for the cannabis to infused with the butter when you use Evergreen Organix Homemade Cannabutter!

Ingredients:

¾ cup Evergreen Organix Homemade Cannabutter (melted)

2 ½ cups quick oats

1 box yellow cake mix

12 oz Strawberry marmalade

Directions:

1.      Preheat oven to 375 degrees

2.      Spray 9 x 13-inch baking dish with non-stick spray

3.      Mix together oats, cake mix, and melted cannabutter until well combined

4.      Press ½ of the mixture into the bottom of the greased baking dish

5.      Spread Strawberry marmalade evenly over the crust

6.      Sprinkle the remaining oat mixture on top as evenly as possible

7.      Bake 18-23 minutes

8.      Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving

Variations:

On the off chance that you’re not a fan of Strawberry, this process can be replicated with any other flavor of marmalade. For example, cherry, blueberry or peach marmalade would work just as well as Strawberry. Simply follow the recipe as written above, only using a different choice in filling flavor.

Bonus points if you cut up fresh strawberries and layer them on top of the marmalade filling before putting the final topping on!

Warnings:

If you feel like this dish may be too strong, or not strong enough, with the designated amount of cannabutter then feel free to adjust to your needs – and substitute with regular butter if you are reducing the amount being used.

However, if you are planning to consume edibles, then you should always keep in mind the safest steps to dosing with cannabis – start low and go slow. If you are smoking or vaping cannabis, wait until it’s started to wear down to consume an edible, and always wait 60-90 minutes before consuming any more cannabis after eating an edible.
