Author: Chrystal Johnson
1cupgluten free oatmeal
¾cupgluten free all purpose flour
1/3cuplight brown sugar
1tablespoonFresh squeezed lemon juicefrom about ½ small lemon
Place a rack in the center of your oven and pre-heat to 375 degrees F.
Line an 8" x 8” baking pan with parchment paper so the paper overhangs the two sides.
In a medium bowl, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, ginger and sea salt. Pour in the melted butter and stir until it forms clumps and the dry ingredients are evenly moistened.
Set aside ½ cup of the crumble mixture, then press the rest into an even layer in the bottom of the prepared pan.
Scatter half of the strawberries over the crust, and then sprinkle on the cornstarch, lemon juice and 1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar evenly over the top. Scatter the remaining berries, then the remaining ½ tablespoon granulated sugar.
Sprinkle the reserved ½ cup crumb mixture evenly on top. Berries will be peeking through the topping. Bake the bars for 35-40 minutes, until the fruit is bubbly and topping is golden. Cool on a wire rack completely.
Once cooled, pull bars out of the pan using the parchment paper, then slice and serve.
