This simple recipe for gluten free strawberry jam bars uses fresh strawberries and strawberry jam. They have a shortbread like base and an oatmeal crisp topping. These are the best gluten free fruit bars for dessert, breakfast or brunch.


Base Layer:
2 cups Gluten Free Flour
1 cup Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt

2 cups Fresh Strawberries, chopped (16 or 1 lbs. container)
1 cup Strawberry Jam

3/4 cup Gluten Free Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Brown Rice Flour
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/4 cup Unsalted Butter, melted
1/2 cup Pecans, Almonds or Walnuts, chopped


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 baking dish with butter or coconut oil. Set aside.

In your mixing bowl add the room temperature unsalted butter, vanilla and granulated sugar. Beat until well blended together. Add the gluten free flour, and sea salt and mix until blended into a dough.

Press the dough into the 8x8 baking dish. 

Spread the strawberry jam over the dough mixture and then top with the chopped strawberries. Set aside.

In your mixer blend the gluten free rolled oats, brown sugar, brown rice flour, sea salt, melted butter and chopped nuts until a crumbly mixture forms.

Sprinkle the crumbly mixture over top of the strawberries.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. When done the edges will be bubbling and the top will be lightly browned.

Let cool before cutting into bars.
