  • 2 ½ cups fresh California strawberries chopped
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp tapioca flour

Crust and Crumble:

  • cup softened coconut oil
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats
  • cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Place strawberries in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring every few minutes.
  • Once the strawberries start to bubble, mix in the lemon juice and maple syrup.
  • Using a potato masher, mash the berries, leaving some in small pieces.
  • Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add the tapioca flour to the strawberries, and simmer for another 5 minutes until thick.
  • In a large bowl, combine all the crust ingredients. Mix until well incorporated and a dough forms.
  • In a parchment paper-lined 8 x 8 or 9 x 5 baking dish, add ⅔ of the oat mixture, pressing down the dough to create a crust. Reserve the rest for the crumble.
  • Bake the crust for 10 minutes.
  • Remove crust from oven and spread the filling strawberry filling on top of the crust.
  • Crumble on the rest of the oat mixture on top of the strawberry filling.
  • Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes, until the crumble is golden.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing into bars.
