To make these delicious strawberry crumble bars, gather fresh strawberries, sugar, flour, oats, baking powder, butter, and a hint of lemon zest.
Begin by washing and slicing the fresh strawberries. Toss them in sugar and let them macerate to enhance their natural sweetness.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, oats, baking powder, and lemon zest. Cut in cold butter to create a crumbly mixture.
Press half of the crumbly mixture into a baking dish to form the crust. Layer the macerated strawberries on top.
Sprinkle the remaining crumbly mixture over the strawberries. This will create a delightful crumble topping.
Bake the bars until the crust is golden brown, and the strawberries are bubbling. The aroma will be irresistible!
Let the strawberry crumble bars cool, then slice and enjoy this delightful treat with a hot cup of tea or coffee.
