Strawberries are at their peak right now. They’re overflowing in our garden and at the local farmer’s market. While I love making strawberry pie (with Paleo Pie Crust), sometimes I want to make something simpler.
This Strawberry Crisp can be whipped up in minutes. It’s an easy gluten-free dessert that is made with only five ingredients –strawberries, almond flour, salt, butter, and slivered almonds. If you’re dairy-free, I also tested this recipe with palm shortening and it was delicious.
When I was developing this Strawberry Crisp recipe I made it close to a dozen times. My boys were faithful taste testers, sampling every batch. Often, they smothered these cute little strawberry crisps with whipped cream while still warm. If you can’t consume dairy you can top Strawberry Crisp with Coconut Whipped Cream. It’s delicious! You can find that recipe in Paleo Cooking from Elana’s Pantry. All of the recipes in it are dairy-free, as well as gluten-free and grain-free. I worked diligently to make the recipes extremely simple, using as few ingredients as possible.
- 1 pound strawberries, sliced in quarters
- ½ cup blanched almond flour
- ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
- 1 tablespoon butter or palm shortening
- ½ cup blanched slivered almonds
