Strawberry Recipe Roundup: Gluten Free (Paleo) Shortcake & Vegan Crisp

It’s that time of year again … strawberry picking season! Woo Hoo! Here’s a quick list of links to my favorite strawberry recipes. I include substitution information to make recipes Paleo or Vegan. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Shortcakes – Gluten Free with Almond Flour, and Paleo / Vegan Options

I love cooking with almond flour and prefer the taste to white flour. As an added bonus, almonds are considered a superfood, loaded with vitamins and minerals. Almond flour is also a great option if you are trying to increase protein and reduce carbs in your diet.

My three children and my in-laws (white flour lovers) all loved this recipe.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp – Gluten Free with Paleo / Vegan Options

Fruit Crisps are my favorite dessert recipe to bake. They taste great with whatever fruit is in season. Much easier than pie crusts (for me), and I prefer the crispy texture. Mmmmm, so yummy … I’m making one of these this week!

Wondering what to do with that mountain of fresh strawberries you just picked from your local, family farm? If you can’t use them all up in your baking, try these recipes for freezing …
