How to make Oven Baked Strawberries
Turn on the oven and let it preheat. Cut up your strawberries into quarters and place them in a baking dish. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes. Remove, stir, then place it back in the oven to roast an additional 10-15 minutes.
Serve the strawberries up as desired and enjoy!
Top Tips for Making Roasted Strawberries
- Cut them the same size: When slicing your strawberries, you’ll want to make sure they are similar in size so that they all roast evenly together in the oven.
- Keep an eye on them while baking: Since I used honey instead of sugar, watch the strawberries closely as they roast to ensure they do not burn. Stopping halfway through to stir everything will help with this.
- Use Ripe Strawberries: Using fresh, ripe and juicy strawberries will result in better flavor when they are roasted.
How to store Strawberries
Once roasted, these strawberries can be saved and used throughout the week as desired. I recommend storing them in an airtight container in the fridge for about 4-6 days. You will love having these on hand for breakfasts and desserts, too!
How to use Roasted Strawberries
These strawberries would be FABULOUS served so many different ways, so feel free to get creative with how you enjoy them! I recommend serving them atop a stack of whole wheat vegan pancakes or protein waffles with a generous dollop of whipped cream or coconut cream. For a delicious dessert, serve it over top of your favorite ice cream or sorbet.
