Easy Strawberry Crisp (vegan+gf)

I love strawberry season and I love strawberry crisp. In fact, I love any kind of fruit crisp. I always have an apple crisp for my birthday instead of cake. I decided to make a strawberry crisp this time since strawberries are so good right now! The sweet and tart strawberries with the granola like crisp on top makes for the perfect summer treat! It’s refreshing and doesn’t weigh you down after a big meal or from the heat. It’s also quite healthy too: vegan, gluten free, and no refined sugars (#wining). The crumble crisp top is so delicious and I could eat it plain. I also love crisps because they are so easy and fast to put together and way less of a hassle than pie. Don’t get me wrong, I love pie, but I don’t always have the time to make my own pie crust. πŸ™‚ With this crisp, you can make it super fast and also change out the fruit to any fruit you have on hand, like apples, blueberries, or peaches. This will be a great 4th of July dessert to share with your friends and family too! Easy Strawberry Crisp

Filling
2 lbs strawberries, halved and quartered
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 Tbsp arrowroot starch or cornstarch

Topping
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup oat flour
1/2 cup almond meal
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup melted coconut oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C). Spray a 9×9 (or you can use an 8×8) baking dish.

Add to a large mixing bowl all the filling ingredients. Toss to combine. Add to the baking dish.

Rinse and wipe out your mixing bowl and add all topping ingredients. Stir well to combine. Pour over the strawberry filling in an even layer and smooth it out with your spatula.

Bake for 35 minutes (uncovered) or until the filling is bubbly and the topping is a deep golden brown.

Let it cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Best when fresh, though leftovers keep covered in the refrigerator up to 3 days, or in the freezer up to 1 month. Reheat in the microwave or in a 350-degree F (176 C) oven until warmed through.

Enjoy!
