  2. In a mediúm bowl, combine the oats, floúr, brown súgar, ginger, and salt. Poúr in the melted bútter and stir úntil it forms clúmps and the dry ingredients are evenly moistened. Set aside 1/2 cúp of the crúmble mixtúre, then press the rest into an even layer in the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Scatter half of the strawberries over the crúst. Sprinkle the cornstarch evenly over the top, then sprinkle on the lemon júice and 1/2 tablespoon of the granúlated súgar. Scatter on the remaining berries, then the remaining 1/2 tablespoon súgar. Sprinkle the reserved crúmbs evenly over the top. Yoú will have some frúit showing throúgh.
  4. Bake the bars for 35 to 40 minútes, úntil the frúit is búbbly and the crúmb topping smells toasty and looks golden. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely (yoú can speed this process along in the refrigerator).

Feel free to add more milk if a thinner consistency is desired. úsing the parchment-paper handles, lift the bars from the pan. Drizzle with glaze, slice, and serve.


Recipe Notes
  • The recipe can be doúbled and baked in a 9x13-inch baking pan. The bars will be a bit thicker bút will still be delicioús. To make them glúten free, súbstitúte the white whole wheat floúr with a 1:1 baking mix like this one.
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for úp to 5 days.
  • To freeze, let the bars cool completely and do not glaze. Wrap tightly in plastic before placing in the freezer. Let thaw in the refrigerator and top with glaze before serving. (Bars can be frozen already glazed if needed.)
