You all know by now that I am a little (okay some might say more than a little) weird. Who wants to be normal anyway?
You might think it’s weird I eat way, way, way more strawberries in the winter than I do in the summer, but it’s not actually weird at all. When the days are dark and cold and nasty, I can turn to Florida Strawberries with a December through April growing season for a bit of brightness and a burst of juicy flavor.
But that’s not all Florida Strawberries bring to the party. You can check out all the health benefits of strawberries on the Florida Strawberry site, and you might be as surprised as I was. For example while I think it’s becoming common knowledge that strawberries are a good source of vitamin C (just eight strawberries have more than an orange!), I had no idea they are an excellent source of folic acid.
Plus strawberries are high in ellagic acid, which is believed to help reduce the risk of cancer. I need to add even more strawberries to my diet.
While I am more than happy to eat strawberries as is or heat them up in the microwave for a jam like vibe, Paleo Strawberry Cobbler is my new favorite dessert (or even slightly indulgent breakfast). I say slightly because this gluten free, refined sugar free dish is nothing to feel guilty about no matter what time of day you eat it, even if it seems like a decadent dessert.
I have been experimenting more and more with Paleo baking and I have found the results to be outstanding. This cobbler is no exception. The flavor of the Florida Strawberries shines through in the fruit filled base, while the topping is crusty on top and tender and cake like where the juices from the strawberries have soaked in. Basically, it’s bliss.
Be sure to pick up some Florida Strawberries on your next trip to the store (I scored some at Target!) and have fun experimenting with all those little red berries can do. Follow Florida Strawberries on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube for inspiration!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In the bottom of an 8 inch square pan, stir together the strawberries, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons tapioca, and 1 tablespoon syrup.
- In a medium bowl, stir together almond flour, 2/3 cup tapioca starch, coconut flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. Add the coconut oil, almond milk, 1 tablespoon syrup, vanilla, and salt. Stir until well combined.
- Spread the batter over the fruit mixture and bake about 40 minutes until the top is set and golden brown and the fruit is bubbling. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave about 1 minute if desired.
