These strawberry oat bars have a soft chewy texture to them. My girls say it reminds them of the nutri-grain bars they once could eat. Fresh strawberries give it a real fruity taste.
1 cup Old fashioned rolled oats
¾ cup coconut flour
½ cup brown sugar
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. cornstarch
2 cups strawberries diced small
¼ cup honey
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 Mix the ¾ oats, coconut flour brown sugar, and salt in a bowl. Add melted butter and mix well.
2 Line a greased parchment paper and add ¾ of oat mixture and press down firmly.
3 In a bowl add the strawberries, cornstarch, sugar, vanilla extract and sugar. Mix and spread over the oatmeal crust.
4 Cover with the remaining oat mix. Bake in a 350F preheated oven for 35-40 mins.
5 Let it cool completely and cut into squares.
