Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9×9 pan with cooking spray.
Pour ground rolled oats and coconut flour, stevia and salt into a food processor and combine by pressing the pulse button a few times.

Press the pulse button until the coconut oil has been incorporated into the crumb mixture. Add the oats and press to combine again. Remove ½ cup of the mixture and set aside to use for the topping.
Add 1 tablespoon of apple sauce to the food processor and to combine, press pulse a few times.

To make the filling, combine the 12 packs of stevia, flour and apple juice until moistened and then add the sliced strawberries. Mix until the strawberries are coated.
Distribute the strawberries evenly onto the crust. Sprinkle crumb topping over the strawberries.
