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.
