Ingredients

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour*
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 cups diced fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Glaze
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper with the parchment overhanging the edges of the pan. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, stir oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt together until combined. 
  • Stir the melted butter into the oatmeal mixture until it forms clumps. 
  • Set aside 1/2 cup of the crumble mixture.
  • Press the remaining oat mixture into an even layer in the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • In a small bowl, toss strawberries, sugar, corn starch, and lemon juice together. 
  • Sprinkle the reserved crumbs over the fruit filling. The crumbs won't completely cover the fruit. 
  • Bake the bars for 35-45 minutes, or until the topping smells is light golden brown. 
  • Cool the bars in the pan until they reach room temperature.
  • To make the glaze,  whisk powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk together until combined.
  • Drizzle over cooled bars, and cut into squares to serve.
