For the strawberry layer

  • 4 cups frozen/fresh strawberries
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • tbsp cornflour mixed with ¼ cup water

For the coconut crumble

  • cups flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter cubed
  • 1 extra-large egg
  • ½ cup sliced almonds for topping


  • Line a 24cm x 13cm x 8cm (9in x 5in x 3in) rectangular baking dish (any dish suitable for brownies or cookie bars will be fine) with parchment paper and pre-heat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the filling in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Allow to simmer, stirring occasionally. Squish the strawberries with the back of a wooden spoon, breaking them up. Simmer until the filling has thickened and is jammy. 
  • To make the base and crumble, combine the flour, coconut, sugar, butter and egg in the bowl of a food processor and mix until the dough comes together. 
  • Press three quarters of the dough into the bottom of the prepared baking dish then top with the strawberry filling.
  • Crumble over the remaining dough and sprinkle over the almonds. 
  • Place in the oven and allow to bake for 20-25 minutes until the bars are golden brown and cooked through. 
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before slicing and serving.
