Paleo Strawberry Sandwich Cookies

Paleo Strawberry Sandwich Cookies Recipe { gluten Free } |

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!

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

  1. These look amazing! Love those roasted strawberries…bet they taste amazing in the cookies, especially with a bit of cream! 🙂

  2. 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?

  3. These cookie sandwiches are so pretty and cheerful – love the roasted strawberries. I’ve been playing around with coconut flour, so I’m glad to have found another recipe to try using it.

  4. 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!

    1. 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!

    1. That is one of my favorite parts of my job…. Love to style food and make it look all pretty for the camera 🙂 Thanks for your sweet comment!

  5. Oh these look spectacular! I love your floral mug too, it’s so pretty. I can’t wait until it’s strawberry picking season here! I’ll have to make these. [:

  6. This is such a beautiful recipe that I can’t wait to try. I know my kid will love it. Your pictures are always stunning and beautiful. I really enjoy them. 🙂

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

    1. 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 🙂
