Oatmeal Pear Crumb Bars with perfect shortbread crust, rich and gooey cinnamon spiced pears and an amazing crispy crumble topping makes for the perfect bite of fall bliss!
Shortbread Crust and Topping: – coconut oil or butter – all-purpose flour – rolled oats
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
Measure out ½ cup of the mixture and set it aside to use later for topping the bars. Transfer the rest of the oat mixture to the parchment-lined baking pan and press it into an even layer for the bottom crust.
Combine pears, water, pure maple syrup, salt, and ground cinnamon in a saucepan and stir well.
