Scrumptious Low-FODMAP Strawberry Oat Bars; Gluten-free, Vegan
February 24, 2018Printer Friendly Version
This is a sweet, chewy, crumbly and fresh tasting low-FODMAP Strawberry Oat Bar recipe. I used to be a big fan of date bars, and this is an even better low-FODMAP alternative. You can also swap out the low-FODMAP strawberry coulis for a raspberry version! Not only are these bars scrumptious, they look perfect on any dessert table.
This low-FODMAP Strawberry (Raspberry) Oat Bar recipe is so easy, and you can make extra low-FODMAP Strawberry Coulis to enjoy on your other baked products, ice cream or yogurt. Hint: for a different flavor- try this with my low-FODMAP Rhubarb Jam recipe!

- ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon xanthan gum if not included in your flour choice
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 10 tablespoons vegan margarine (such as Earth Balance) for vegan version, can also use butter

- ¾ cup low-FODMAP strawberry coulis/preserves (can also use raspberry)
- vegetable shortening for greasing
- Grease your 8×8 inch baking pan and set aside
- Preheat oven to 350 F

- Melt butter or margarine in the microwave or in a small pot
- Stir vanilla extract into melted butter/margarine then pour mixture over dry ingredients
- Using a fork or spatula, combine mixture well
- Set aside about 1/3 of the oat mixture
- Take the remaining 2/3 and using the spatula, press it down in the bottom of the greased pan
- Spoon the strawberry coulis over this bottom layer
- Crumble the rest of the oat mixture over the strawberry layer
- Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and almost set
- They may look slightly underdone, this is normal
