Strawberry Shortcake Cookies {gf,df,rsf}

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

Happy June friends! You know what that means... it's strawberry season! To celebrate, I thought I'd turn one of my childhood favorites, strawberry shortcake into strawberry shortcake cookies! These cookies have the flavor of strawberry shortcake, but transformed into a crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside cookie. Just look at those cookies- who could resist?! They are filled with more nutritious baking ingredients, such as oat flour, almond flour, and creamy almond butter. The natural sweetness of these cookies stems from a little pure maple syrup and organic coconut sugar. Plus, they have the ultimate sweetness from Mother Natures candy: organic strawberries. These make for a perfect mid day snack, breakfast cookie, or late night dessert with some ice cream or plant mylk. They scream summer, and are gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free... let's get baking!
