Recipe Ingredients for Strawberry Oat Squares

1 1/2 cups oats
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp Chia Seeds
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tbsp almond milk
1 tbsp sesame seeds (for topping only)
2 1/4 cups strawberries, chopped
4 tablespoons sugar
1 tbsp chia seeds

Recipe Directions for Strawberry Oat Squares

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a square pan (I used a 99) with parchment paper and oil the sides of the pan and base. In a medium sized pot, add the chopped strawberries and sugar. Heat over low until the strawberries begin to sweat and it gets a bit watery. Once it heats down a bit, add in the chia seeds, and stir well. Bring to a boil and then simmer over low to medium heat for at least 10 minutes. Once it has thickened a bit, remove from heat and cool for 5-10 mins. You may also add arrowroot powder to thicken it up more if desired, but I didn?t have any. In a small bowl, mix the chia or flax egg and set aside. In a large bowl, mix the oat base dry ingredients: oats, flour, Sucanat/brown sugar, baking soda, salt. In a small bowl, mix the melted earth balance, maple syrup, almond milk, and chia egg. Stir well. Add the wet mixture (reserving 1/2 cup of the mixture) to the dry and mix well, using hands if necessary. Pour the oat mixture onto the square pan and press down with fingers. Use a pastry roller to smooth out if desired. Pour on strawberry mixture and smooth out. Now sprinkle on the reserved 1/2 cup oat mixture and sprinkle on. Now sprinkle on 1 tbsp of sesame seeds or coconut. Bake at 350F for approximately 30 minutes. Allow to fully cool for at least 30-40 minutes before gently removing from pan. Slice and then store in a container in the fridge to keep firm.
