This vegan strawberry crisp is bursting with juicy strawberries, sweetened with maple syrup, and topped with a decadent oat-crumble topping

Easy to make and perfect with a scoop of dairy-free vanilla ice cream. Fresh strawberries are one of my favorite things about this time of year! I love strawberries, and I buy them year-round — even during the winter months when they’re not very good. But right about now is about when I start getting excited about fresh berries.
