Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12-15 squares
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice (1/2 lemon squeezed)
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup strawberries, stems removed and quartered
  • 1 cup rhubarb (about 2 stalks), stems removed and chopped into small pieces
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp ground flax meal
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ cup shaved white chocolate + 2 tbsp more for sprinkling
  • ¼ cup olive or coconut oil (two totally different flavors, you choose)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  1. First preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a 9x9" baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Next in a small sauce pan over medium heat add lemon juice, water and 2 tbsp maple syrup. Bring to a boil and add strawberries and rhubarb. Mix together, bring to a boil and then lower heat to medium low, stirring frequently for about 8-10 minutes (or until both rhubarb and strawberries have completely softened).
  3. Once berries are completely soft, turn heat off and very carefully using the back of a fork (or a potato masher) smash berries until consistency becomes more like a berry jam/sauce. Set aside and allow to cool until ready to use.
  4. Next in a large bowl add your oats, sesame seeds, chia seeds, flax, salt and ¼ cup white chocolate. Mix. Set aside.
  5. In a small bowl or cup add your oil, egg, peanut butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Whisk together. Add the wet ingredients into your dry oat bowl. Fold together.
  6. Next add about ½ the oat mixture to the baking pan, spreading it out evenly over the bottom. Next add your berry sauce and spread out evenly. Top with he remaining oats, carefully spread (will be a little messy that's okay) and sprinkle with 2 tbsp shaved white chocolate.
  7. Place in oven for about 30 minutes, or until top reaches a nice golden brown color.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature (about 30 minutes) and then place in fridge for an additional 2 hours. Slice into squares and serve.
