These are a great way to use up some of the rhubarb in my garden, and honestly were so incredibly easy to make. A little easier to make than a pie, but just as delicious!
1 cup oats
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 t salt
6 tablespoons earth balance, melted
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup diced rhubarb (from about 1 1/2 medium stalks)
1 cup diced strawberries
Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
Place oats, 3/4 cup flour, brown sugar and salt in bottom of baking pan and mix. Pour melted earth balance over, and stir until clumps form. Set aside 1/2 cup of the crumble mixture. Press the rest of the crumb mixture evenly in the bottom of the pan.
Spread half the fruit over the crust. Sprinkle it evenly with cornstarch, then lemon juice, and 1/2 tablespoon of granulated sugar. Spread remaining fruit over this, and top with second 1/2 tablespoon sugar. Scatter reserved crumbs over fruit and bake bars for 30 to 40 minutes.
