Jen's Strawberry Crème Brule Bars

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups packed light brown sugar
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks), room temperature
1 large egg
½ cup Bailey’s Crème Brule Coffee Creamer
1 pint fresh strawberries, stems removed and sliced, about 2 cups

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 x 13-inch pan with parchment paper, leaving an overhang of 1 to 2-inches on two sides (in order to easily lift the bars out of the pan).

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, oats, baking powder and salt. Place the softened butter into the bowl and whisk in the egg.  

In a sauce pan, add strawberries and crème Brule cream and heat on high until fruit reduces into a lumpy sauce. Fold this mixture into the bowl of oats and stir until just combined.
Spread the mixture evenly onto the parchment paper and place in oven until golden, about 25 to 30 minutes. Let the bars cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Lift the bars from the pan (using the parchment paper) and cool completely on a rack. Cut the bars into 2-inch squares. Store the bars in an airtight container the refrigerator, but serve them at room temperature.
