Vegan Strawberry Pie Bars are the perfect summertime treat!
Strawberry season is officially upon us and I couldn’t be more excited! Every year, I head to my local berry farm and pick a ton of fresh strawberries. I love freezing local strawberries and using them throughout the year.
With so many frozen strawberries, I am always looking for new ways to use them. These Vegan Strawberry Pie Bars are the perfect treat to make with the frozen berries. The best part is that you can make them year round too!
These perfectly sweet Vegan Strawberry Pie Bars are so easy to make too! The bars start by making the crust—which is naturally gluten-free too! Just be sure to use gluten-free oats! To make the crust, combine oat flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and mix it all together with melted vegan butter.
Take a little more than half of the crumb mixture and press it into an 8×8 inch pan lined with parchment paper, The rest of the crumble with go on top.
Next it’s time to make the strawberry filling. The frozen strawberries are naturally sweetened with maple syrup. The filling need to be slightly thick, so a little cornstarch is used to help thicken up the berries. The filling gets poured over the crust.
The filling gets topped with the rest of the crumble, the bakes in the oven until bubbling.
Allow the bars to completely cool before cutting. These bars are perfect for a quick and easy on the go snack or breakfast.
