Ingredients

For the crust/crumble:

For the strawberry filling:

  • 16 oz fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar (can do more or less to taste)
  • 1 tbsp Bob's Red Mill coconut sugar (optional for a sweeter filling)

Instructions

  • Place coconut butter jar in a bowl of hot water to soften it. Then, get your strawberry filling going. 
  • Place strawberries, water and coconut sugar (if using) in a sauce pan over medium-low heat. Let them start to break down, stirring occasionally. 
  • While the strawberries are on the stove, make crumble/crust. Place all of the crumble/crust ingredients, except for the coconut butter and oil, in a large mixing bowl. Use a fork to mix the ingredients up a bit. Add coconut butter and oil. Use fork to mix ingredients, until little crumbles form. You don't want to over mix. Keep the crumbles alive.
  • Preheat oven to 350° F, and line a square pan with parchment paper. Place about 2/3 of the crumble/crust mixture in the pan. Press it down to make the crust layer. 
  • Go back to your strawberries. They should be broken down and saucy. Turn heat off and stir in balsamic vinegar.
  •  Layer strawberry mixture on top of crust. Sprinkle the remaining crumble mixture on top. Place in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes. 
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely. You can even let them set in the fridge for about 30 minutes. Slice and serve. They go great with a little coconut cream whipped cream or vanilla ice cream! Enjoy!
