♦ Preheat oven to 350F (180C).
♦ Slightly grease a 8×8 inch (20x20cm) square pan and line with parchment paper, in such a way that some edges are longer to make it easy to lift it up once it’s set.
♦ In a bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.
♦ Add butter and vanilla and stir until combined and crumbly. Set aside about 1 cup.
♦ Press remaining crumb mixture into the bottom of the pan.
♦ Cut strawberries in small pieces and place into a bowl.
♦ Add sugar, lemon zest and cornstarch and toss to coat.
♦ Spread the strawberries over the crust.
♦ Sprinkle the reserved cup of crumb mixture over the strawberries.
♦ Bake for 30-40 minutes or until lightly browned.
♦ Cool completely.
