This paleo strawberry ginger crisp is a super simple, healthy and delicious dessert.
In the absence of dessert in my house I kind of freak out. I brought home 2 big slices of fudge last week from Martha’s Vineyard knowing that would last me awhile since I live with the man who doesn’t like chocolate but early in the weekend I ate the last piece. I could feel the panic set in instantly. Sure, there are chocolate chips in the pantry and a jar of nutella when things get desperate but that just leads to far too many handfuls or spoonfuls of chocolateness. I can’t be trusted with a full bag or jar. Who has the kind of willpower to stop themselves when it’s just you, a spoon and a jar of nutella? WHO?
In these panic situations it’s like my brain just leaves my body. I can’t think of anything to make and it seems like there are absolutely no options whatsoever. All I hear in my head is “omg, omg, omg, you need dessert, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?!” While I was cutting up some strawberries for breakfast though, my brain came back from vacation and was all “dude, make a strawberry crisp.”
I make a version of this crisp all the time. Why 1. it’s never made it’s way onto the site until now or 2. I didn’t think of it sooner in my dessert panic attack, I really don’t know.
Don’t let the term “paleo” scare you in this. I’ve been making this well before “paleo” was even a hot topic. It’s really just a healthier version of a classic so if you accidentally eat half the skillet in one sitting there’s absolutely nothing to feel bad about. I might know a thing or two about that.
