Roasted Strawberries

Many people associate vitamin C with oranges. Yet one serving of strawberries has more vitamin C than a serving of oranges! Of course, that is just one of the many health benefits that strawberries offer. Strawberries are also high in fiber and manganese. Manganese is responsible for several important functions, such as helping with calcium absorption and assisting with metabolizing fat and carbohydrates. Strawberries are also a great source of antioxidants.

I like to sneak these healthy and delicious berries into my diet in many ways. One of my favorite ways to do this is to use roasted strawberries in and on other healthy foods. Roasted strawberries are delicious and have become popular among foodies. They make a great topping for pancakes, coconut yogurt, coconut ice cream, oatmeal, and chocolate, among other foods.

This recipe is quick and easy, which means you can easily replace less healthy toppings with roasted strawberries.

Notes

  • Vegetarian and vegan
  • If you do not have maple syrup on hand, sprinkle with brown sugar.
  • Canola or vegetable oil can be used in place of olive oil.
  • Omit oil altogether to cut calories; the result will still be juicy with a slightly different flavor.
  • Freezes well.
