For Crust:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • cup maple syrup or sweetener of choice
  • ¼ cup coconut oil solid
  • tsp salt

For Filling:

  • ¾ cup California strawberries chopped
  • ½ cup lemon juice (juice of 2 lemons)

  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest (zest of 2 lemons)
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp arrowroot starch
  • Whole strawberries for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine crust ingredients. Using fork or a pastry cutter, mix until the dough is a consistent, crumbly texture.

  • Bake the crust for 20-23 minutes or until golden. Let the crust cool completely. While crust is cooling, make the filling.
  • Place chopped strawberries and lemon juice in a blender. Blend until smooth to create a purée.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs well. Add sugar, lemon zest, and strawberry purée. Mix well, adding flour and arrowroot starch.
  • Pour filling mixture over the crust. Place back in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Once the bars are done baking, let cool completely. Cut into bars and enjoy or refrigerate and serve later.
