Strawberry Granola Squares

  • 1 1/2 cups Love Grown Foods granola
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 5 Tbsp cold butter
  • 1 cup strawberry preserves (such as Smuckers)

In a large bowl, combine the granola, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon; cut in butter until crumbly.  (If you've never cut in butter before, read this super informative post written by Sarah and Kate over at Our Best Bites that shows you exactly how!)  Set aside a third of the mixture for topping.  Press remaining mixture into a well-greased 9-in. square baking pan.  Bake at 375 degrees F for 10 minutes.

Spread preserves over crust; sprinkle with reserved granola mixture.  Bake 15 minutes longer or until filling is bubbly around the edges.  Cool on a wire rack.  Cut into squares and store in refrigerator.  Enjoy!
