These strawberry oatmeal bars are a delicious combination of fresh and fruity with a decadent yet wholesome, naturally gluten-free oat-based crust and crumb topping. Best of all, this strawberry crumble cake is dairy-free, low-fat, can be made oil and butter-free, and use unrefined sugars only!
I recommend using a kitchen scale for this recipe and measuring the ingredients in grams. The recipe has a video for visual instructions.Preheat the oven to 360 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
Put the ingredients for the strawberry filling in a saucepan, bring to a boil, let it simmer for 5-10 minutes, and stir occasionally.
Mix all ingredients for the dough in a bowl by either using your hands or a hand mixer.
Press 2/3 of the dough evenly into a greased or lined baking dish. My pan measures 7 x 11 inches (18 x 28 cm).
Pour the strawberry filling over the crust.
Crumble the remaining 1/3 dough on top.
Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!
This recipe has been updated in August 2019 with new photos, a video, and helpful tips, the recipe is exactly the same as published in April 2017.
Banana: Use banana or applesauce for a low-fat version. If you prefer a flaky/buttery soft crust, I would recommend using 40 grams banana (or applesauce) and 40 grams vegan butter (margarine).
Almond flour: You can use any ground nuts/seeds of choice (e.g. hazelnuts, shredded unsweetened coconut) instead of almond flour.
Coconut milk: You could use oat cream or soy cream instead of canned coconut milk.
