Ingredients

Strawberry Rhubarb Topping:

  • 2 cups roughly chopped rhubarb
  • 2 cups quartered and hulled fresh strawberries or frozen strawberries will work too
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Oat Crust:

  • 1.5 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup spelt flour*
  • 1/2 cup solid coconut oil**
  • 2 tbsp honey***

Instructions

Topping:

  1. Place a medium sauce pan over medium heat with rhubarb pieces, strawberry pieces, and honey. Cook, stirring occasionally for 15-20 minutes or until rhubarb and strawberries have become tender. Remove from heat, mix in lemon juice, and set aside.

Bars:

  1. Meanwhile, grease a 9" x 13" baking pan. Preheat oven to 350° F.

  2. Mix together oats, flour and coconut oil until a crumb like texture forms (I found using my hands to this created the best result). Press mixture firmly into greased pan.

  3. Top oat mixture in pan with strawberry rhubarb mixture.Bake for 25-30 minutes. Allow to cool slightly in pan if serving immediately.

  4. Bars will keep for 3-5 days tightly wrapped in refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

*  You can replace the spelt flour with all-purpose flour or whole wheat if desired. 

** You can replace the coconut oil with unsalted butter 

*** You can use up to 4 tbsp of honey here. One of my littles does not like overly sweet items so I only use 2 tbsp.
