Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup gluten free flour blend * see notes
  • ¾ cup almond flour * see notes
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • dash salt
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • cup strawberry jam
  • 1 ¼ cup sliced strawberries

Instructions
 

  • Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper.
  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • Wash and slice the strawberries.
  • In a large bowl, add the dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • In a small bowl, add the butter and egg. Make sure the melted butter is not hot. Add a little butter to the egg and whisk, this tempers the egg so it won't cook. Add the rest of the butter and whisk.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  • Mix well. Pour ¾ of the crust mixture into the baking pan and press flat to cover the bottom of the pan.
  • Spread the jam over the crust, then add the strawberries.
  • Top with chunks of cream cheese and the rest of the crumble crust mix.
  • Bake 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Notes

  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF, Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend, and Authentic Foods Multi Blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. I highly suggest using almond flour and not almond meal. Almond meal is more coarse and will make your bars grainy.
  4. If you would like to make these bars dairy-free, you can substitute the butter for vegan stick butter and use a dairy-free cream cheese by Kite Hill or Daiya.
  5. These strawberry cream cheese bars will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
