Strawberry Oat Bars

Crust and topping:

Filling:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line an 8×8 pan with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.

To make the strawberry filling, combine the strawberries, maple syrup, and rapadura sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.#FoodieFriday: Strawberry Oat Bars recipe from Beeyoutiful.com

In a separate bowl, whisk the arrowroot and water together until the mixture resembles milk and pour into the hot strawberry mixture.

If you want your filling to be on the thick side, continue to simmer for about a minute (but no longer, or it will break down the arrowroot and actually make the mixture thinner). Remove from heat.

In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, oatscoconut, salt, almondsrapadura sugar, and cinnamon.

Pour in the melted butter and stir until well combined. Press 1/2 of the oat mixture into the bottom of the 8×8 pan. Spread the strawberry filling on top. Take the remaining oat mixture and crumble it on top of the strawberry filling.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until the topping is golden brown. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.
