For the Strawberry Filling: – fresh strawberries – granulated sugar – all-purpose flour – sea salt Shortbread Crust and Topping: – all-purpose flour – rolled oats – coconut oil – granulated sugar – sea salt



Make the Crust & Topping

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line an 8” x 8” baking dish with parchment paper.

Add all of the ingredients for the crust and topping to a large bowl and stir well until everything is combined. The dough should be somewhat crumbly and not over oily.


Measure out ½ cup of the mixture and set it aside to reserve as the crumble topping. Transfer the remaining crust mixture to the parchment-lined prepared pan and press it into an even layer.



Use a fork to poke several holes into the crust. Bake the crust for 15 to 20 minutes, or until it is just slightly golden brown.

Make the Strawberry Filling


While the crust is baking, prepare the strawberry mixture. To do so, transfer the strawberries and granulated sugar (or pure maple syrup) to a saucepan with 2 tablespoons of water.
