Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 sticks / 3/4 cup butter (at room temp)
  • 3/4 cup + 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/3 cup ground golden flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Generous pinch of salt
  • 1 pound hulled strawberries sliced
  • 1/2 cup gluten or grain free granola
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350* F.
  • In a stand mixer or using a hand mixer, add the butter and 2/3 cups of sugar to a bowl and mix until it is incorporated. Slowly add the flour while continuously mixing until the flour is full incorporated into the butter and sugar and forms a dough. Add the flax seed, vanilla and pinch of salt and mix until combined.
  • Lightly grease an 8x8 inch baking pan. Separate 2/3 of the dough and gently press onto the bottom of the pan and slightly up the sides of the pan.
  • Layer the strawberries evenly onto the crust. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of sugar over top of the strawberries.
  • Combine the remaining dough, granola, almonds and cinnamon in a bowl and crumble it over top of the strawberries.
  • Place the baking pan in the over and bake the bars for 40-45 minutes until the top is golden brown. Remove the pan from the oven and let the Gluten-Free Strawberry Crumble Bars cool for 45 minutes prior to cutting.
  • With a sharp knife, cut into nine pieces and serve.
