Strawberry Fruit Bar Ingredients
1/2 cup of strawberry juice

1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 and 1/2 cups of flour
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 tablespoon of sugar
Strawberry Fruit Bars Recipe Directions
Wash and hull the strawberries. Then, slice 1/2 cup of them thinly and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8-inch baking pan.
Blend the rest of the strawberries together with the strawberry juice until smooth. Pour into a mixing bowl and beat together with the egg, vanilla, and coconut oil. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Beat thoroughly. Add the blueberries and remaining sliced strawberries to the mixture.
Spread the mixture into the baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, or until browned. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean when finished.
Remove the done fruit bars from the oven and allow to cool prior to cutting into squares and serving!
