- 2 ½ cups strawberries-hulled and cut into quarters
- 2 TBSP maple syrup
- 1 ½ tbsp. starch (we used potato, you can use corn or arrowroot)
- 1-2 TBSP water or juice to dilute the starch
- 1 TBSP vanilla extract
- Pour the maple syrup, vanilla and the diluted starch over the strawberries and mix them thoroughly until the strawberries are coated.
- Assemble the sugar, oat flour, oats, baking powder together and mix to combine
- Add the oil and vanilla. Using a fork mix the wet and the dry ingredients until they come together in little pea-size clumps. If too dry, add a little milk, but not too much. You want it crumbly but able to hold its shape.
- Reserve 1/3 cup of the oat mixture.
- Press oat mixture into an 8x8 baking pan and up the sides.
- Pour the strawberry filling into the crust and sprinkle the reserve oat mixture over the top.
- Dot with a few chocolate chips.
- Bake at 350 for approximately 40 minutes.
