A really simple Gluten-Free Strawberry Crisp recipe with only seven ingredients. Perfect for summertime. Vegan-friendly!
And how are we already into the middle of June?! I cannot believe Drew and I closed on our house two months ago already! May was gone in the blink of an eye for us. Even quicker than two years ago – the year my brother got married in the Virgin Islands and we got married almost three weeks later. Yeah, that was crazy! I will forever be amazed how time just flies.
We are still working our way through figuring out what new furniture to buy first. The couch is a top priority but another big decision. So of course it is taking me forever to decide. Did anyone else struggle with this? I thought we had decided until we changed our minds on the style – sofa chaise versus regular couch versus sectional. Our living room is kind of small and very much a square, making it difficult to figure out what to go with. And then of course there is the color… the material… the look. So many decisions and apparently the only thing Drew cares about is that the couch is big enough for him to sleep on. It sounds like he is preparing for a future fight for when he has to sleep on the couch…
Another little dilemma we’re running into is finding the right size bar stool. Who knew finding extra tall bar stools would be so difficult? I was super excited about these upholstered bar stools I found on sale from Target. Ordered three, thought I was good to go. We took them home, set one up, only to realize they were definitely not tall enough. We do not have “regular” bar height counters but “extra tall” apparently. And I can’t find a single bar stool (at a decent price) that is upholstered, has a back, and is taller than 30″ seat height. Ludicrous, I tell you. LUDA.CRISP. Ha, get it? Because we’re going to talk about…
Gluten-Free Strawberry Crisp
That was the most random food segue ever but let’s go with it! I mean, that is what we’re for: THE FOOD. And maybe hopefully some random tidbits about life too 🙂
ANYWAYS, back to the ludaCRISP.
I feel like fruit crisp is one of those underrated desserts. Especially if you’re all about the chocolate… Which I get, trust me. But fruit desserts need a little love too! And this strawberry crisp happens to be gluten-free and vegan-friendly. It’s great for gatherings, or just whipping up a batch and then enjoying the leftovers as breakfast. Because it’s actually a pretty healthy dessert.
what you need
So few ingredients make up this easy strawberry crisp! And super simple to make too. The strawberries go in the bottom of a greased baking dish. The crisp mixture goes on top. You bake. It cools. You top your heart out. AND EAT.
I used Greek yogurt in the photos you see here (hello, awesome breakfast) but you could use your favorite ice cream, whipped coconut cream, etc. So many ways to enjoy this healthy strawberry crisp!
Let me know if you make this recipe! <3
- Preheat oven to 350F and grease a 9″ pie dish, or similar size baking dish with coconut oil (or ghee/butter).
- Evenly spread strawberries on bottom of baking dish and sprinkle on about 1 tablespoon coconut sugar.
- In a medium bowl combine 1/4 cup coconut sugar, rolled oats, almond meal, ground cinnamon, salt and softened coconut oil. Use spoon to start mixing, but work in everything with hands at the end.
- Distribute oatmeal mixture over top of strawberries in even layer.
- Bake for 40-50 minutes, until oatmeal mixture is golden and crisp. Allow strawberry crisp to cool for 20 minute before serving with your favorite topping. Whole milk vanilla yogurt, ice cream, or whipped coconut cream would all be amazing!
A reader noted they didn’t get the browned topping they were after for a crisp. If you find this is a case, feel free to add an extra tablespoon of coconut oil, ghee or butter to the oat mixture.
