Strawberry Oat Crumb Bars

One of the things I like best about these Strawberry Oat Crumb Bars is that they are made with fresh strawberries instead of jam. I first made these a few months ago and loved the rich, buttery taste of these bars that are big on strawberry flavor! They’re a nice, simple dessert for spring and summer, either on their own or with a scoop of vanilla or strawberry ice cream added on top. You could even drizzle strawberry syrup over the ice cream if you want to get fancy! 🙂

STRAWBERRY OAT CRUMB BARS by NancyC                   Strawberry Oat Crumb Bars @ NancyC

Makes a 9×13″ pan, 15–18 bars

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) plus 3 Tablespoons cold salted butter, cubed
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries, cut into small chunks
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease a 9×13″ baking pan; set aside.

In large bowl, mix the flour, oats, 1/2 cup of the granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add in the butter, using a pastry cutter or fork, until mixture is crumbly.

Press two-thirds of the crumbly mixture firmly and evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan.

In a medium bowl, add the chopped strawberries, the remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar, and the cornstarch. Coat berries evenly with the sugar and cornstarch. Spoon strawberry mixture evenly over the bottom crumb layer in the pan.

Sprinkle remaining one-third of the crumbly mixture evenly over the strawberry layer. Bake at 350˚F for 38 to 40 minutes, until top crumb mixture is lightly browned. Cool completely, then cut into squares.

          Hi Lisa–that’s part of the amount you use for the crumb mixture–the total amount of butter you use for the crumb mixture is 3/4 cup, plus another 3 Tablespoons, which is almost 1 cup. Hope that helps! 🙂 If you like the texture of your crumb mixture with just the 3/4 cup butter, you can leave the additional 3 Tablespoons out!
