If you know me, you know I love dessert. Seriously, it’s my favorite part of any meal, and I have something sweet EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.
My sweet tooth, however, is usually satisfied by something naturally low in sugar or at least made with non-toxic ingredients. That’s why I love recipes like this healthy strawberry cobbler! I call this “Strawberry Crunch Cobbler” because it’s a twist between a typical cobbler and crisp. With organic strawberries back at the market – this is super easy to whip up in no time! (See video tutorial below too!)
Did you know a typical conventional strawberry can have up to 54 pesticides on it? 9 are known carcinogens and 19 of them are toxic to honey bees. Without bees we don’t have plants and without plants…you know. Choosing and buying organic food is absolutely critical to reducing our exposure to pesticides and saving the earth!

Can you tell me the name of some non-GMO corn starches, (brand names) and where I can purchase them in AZ. Thanks for the help and keep up the good work. I love your site.
You can look online…
I live in Kansas and found some in the organic section at or grocery store. Thr brand I found is… Rumford. Hopen that helps! 🙂
Where do you add the rolled oats and chopped almonds in the ingredients list????
I put it w/ the other crust ingredients right before the oil.
I’d like to put this into MyFitnessPal. Do have the nutritional info?
You can add it individually by ingredient to the recipe side and it will get you all the nutritional info.
You can get organic arrowroot powder off of amazon.com , its by Starwest Botanicals. Hope this helps you.
I did this recipe and my husband loved it. He does not usually like this kind of
thing. It is true that I used a different type of fruit and did not do the fruit part but used a recipe that I had been using. I also used cherries. we live in Florida and strawberries are finished here. But it was excellent. I served it with a custard sauce made from almond milk. Delicious
It is true that cherries have a much higher fructose content than strawberries.
I too, would like more recipes made with almond flour and coconut flour.
What do you think of using pineapple instead of strawberries?
I followed all the directions , but I doubled the recipe and used 3 cups peaches and 1 cup blueberries instead of strawberries. It is amazing! Thank you so much for another great recipe!
I made this last night with organic frozen blueberries. It was AMAZING. I’m having leftovers for lunch. Thank you!!
I love this recipe if I could I would have it every day if I could. My Mom loves rhubarb so I will add some in sometimes.
Alright. I’m not saying that it’s good to find pesticide residue on any fruit or vegetable… BUT: I hope you realize you will never find all the list (45 according to the link, not 54) on a single fruit, right? Why on earth would anyone do this? So yes, you might find one or two of them, which is not necessarily a good thing, and that’s why you should rinse your fruits before eating them (there might also be some more “natural” substances deposited on fruits you want to get rid of). But please, stop your fear-mongering and number-dropping to make your article look more impressive. Also, the dose present needs to be taken into account. No one in their right mind would drink a cup of any pesticide, but traces of otherwise undesirable substances can be harmless – as the traces of toxic compounds like formaldehyde or cyanide that are naturally present in several fruits! Hope this helps keep things in perspective.
(The recipe looks great though)
This information below, from the USDA, is copied directly from the EWG website. Seb, you must be a pesticide using strawberry farmer.
The USDA’s strawberry tests found that:
Almost all samples – 99 percent – had detectable residues of at least one pesticide.
Some 30 percent had residues of 10 or more pesticides.
The dirtiest strawberry sample had residues of 23 different pesticides and breakdown products.
Strawberry samples contained residues of 81 different pesticides in various combinations.
BTW, the strawberries were rinsed as one would at home before testing.
Also, why almonds are great they are also hurting the water issue in CA. Please not only be considerate of what you put in your body, but also how it affects the land, whether full of pesticides or otherwise.
