Super fruity middle layer, surrounded by a crunchy oatmeal crust on the bottom and a creamy cheesecake layer on top.
Preheat your oven to 350°F and line the bottom of your baking pan (8 inch) with parchment paper. Set pan aside.
The the strawberry layer:
Put a small saucepan over medium heat. Combine strawberries, lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch in the saucepan. Cook until mixture starts to get thick, about 5 minutes (stir often). Remove from heat and set aside to cool, while you prepare the rest of the bars.
For the crust:
Mix all of the dry crust ingredients in a medium sized bowl then addh the softened butter, mixing until evenly moistened and crumbly. Set a little bit more than 1/2 cup of the crumbles aside. Now press the remaining crumbles into your pan, so that you have an even bottom layer. Bake crust for 15-17 minutes.
For the cheesecake layer:
In a medium sized bowl using a mixer, mix the cream cheese, egg and vanilla until smooth. Add sugar and salt, mix for another minute.
Once the crust is done you pour the strawberry mix on it and then top that with the cheesecake mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining crumbles that you’ve set aside earlier. Bake another 35 minutes.
When done remove the pan from the oven and let the cake cool completely in the baking pan before putting it in the fridge for another 2 hours.
