I absolutely love this super easy vegan strawberry oat crumble slice recipe. It can be made in less than 5 minutes (especially if you use store-bought healthy jam – look for low sugar or sweetened with fruit juices instead) and is really healthy as well as being vegan, wheat-free, refined-sugar-free (depending on jam used!) and also nut-free. The perfect afternoon tea treat! And is so healthy can be eaten for breakfast too!!
As I said you can either buy store-bought jams (some are not too bad for sugar and a little of sugar here and there isn’t as bad as we think it is!) but if you prefer avoiding all sugar or keeping it more homemade you can try making some homemade strawberry like jam in minutes. I popped my recipe below or you can make chia jam which works very well. I enjoy making chia jams when I have too many over ripe fruits!
