Earlier this week we talked about how roasted strawberries are the best thing ever. A lot of you guys dashed into the kitchen to make them as soon as you read my recipe for Citrus Roasted Strawberry Parfaits. You learned that by roasting strawberries they become even sweeter and the depth of flavor is amazing.

Now that we know how good this is, let’s make cookies! As always I’ll urge you to try these for breakfast. They are all natural, great for you ~ sugar free, grain free, gluten free. Best kinda breakfast, snack or dessert ever!!

Speaking of breakfast my favorite meal of the day, I have a guest post on Rosa’s Yummy Yums blog that you need to check out with new photos and my favorite breakfasts!

These cookies are so simple to bake. Start with some juicy fresh strawberries…like these:

Roast the  heck out of those strawberries in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes. You can stop right there and make parfaits, lick this fruity bliss off a spoon. Or make cookies…

Be sure to fill those cookies with lots of freshly whipped cream. You can do regular whipped cream or go for a vegan version made with coconut milk. If you are on the Paleo Diet you would want to that.

I am so in love with the idea of cookie sandwiches. Two of our favorites are Strawberry Whoopie Pies and Sunflower Seed Butter Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies.

The roasted strawberries can be anything you want them to be. In these sandwich cookies they become jam!

This recipe is like a little taste of spring bursting in your mouth…

It is OK if you don’t add the creamy jam filling, but really how could you resist?!

Sunny Strawberry Sandwich Cookies

Ingredients

Method

  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the middle. In a bowl mix together dry ingredients. In another bowl mix together wet ingredients. Combine all ingredients well with a spoon. Press dough together with your hands and transfer to a work surface. Knead a few minutes into a well combined dough ball. Roll dough out to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into pretty shapes. Bake about 17-18 minutes, until edges are slightly browned.
  • Assembly
  • Pipe small amounts of whipped cream onto a cookie. Fill the center with a spoonful of roasted strawberries. Top with another cookie to make a sandwich.
  • Notes
  • Make a Big Batch of Roasted Strawberries so you can enjoy them with yogurt parfaits, stir into oatmeal and make cookies.
  • My original recipe has citrus in it, you can omit that or keep it if you wish. Won't change a thing at all about this recipe.

Beautiful photography as always Marla. My favorite sandwich cookie is an ice cream sandwich. Banana ice cream between two peanut butter cookies. Does that count?

Organic fresh strawberries are not in season here yet but I have a ton I picked from last summer in the freezer. I don’t suppose frozen strawberries will work, huh? I so want to make this recipe! Maybe I will try it anyway, worst case is they go into a smoothie. Thanks for amazing pictures!

Sue, roasting veggies is my favorite way to prepare them. You are correct ~ doing that with the strawberries makes them that much sweeter & fuller of flavor. A total win!

Can I substitute white whole wheat for the flours, and reg. or brown sugar for the stevia? Regular milk for coconut milk?

59 Marla March 28, 2012 at 1:13 pm

Hi Sharee, not sure at all how so many significant changes would effect the outcome of this recipe. If you have success let me know :)

Just wondering if you can replace the almond flour with oat flour to make it nut free?

Reply

62 Marla January 20, 2014 at 10:51 am

Hi! Not sure how that would work out as I have not tested it like that. If you try let us know :)
