Roasted Balsamic Strawberry Crumble

Nom Nom Nom.
This is the most delicious crumble recipe ever. It's sweet and a bit savory with a hint of balsamic. The brown sugar crumbles up together to make little brown sugar bombs that burst with flavor in your mouth. The cashews add a little crunch and some extra protein. The roasted balsamic strawberries add a little something extra but you can use this crumble recipe with any berry or regular strawberries. Combine different fruits to make different varieties. Easy, Cheap and Gluten Free crumble coming at you!

2 Cups Strawberries, Cut in half or chunks
1 Cup All Purpose Gluten Free Baking Mix
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 TSP Cinnamon 
1/2 Cup Gluten Free Oats
1/3 Cup Shortening, like Spectrum Organic or Crisco
1/2 TBSP Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 Cup Cashews 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut your strawberries. Toss them in balsamic vinegar.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper and place strawberries on there.
Roast for 3-4 minutes.
Flip and roast 3-4 more minutes.

In a large bowl, combine GF baking mix, brown sugar, and cinnamon. 
Add in shortening. With your fingers, roll the shortening into the mix to create little "crumbles" 
Get your whole hands in there and between your fingers rub the shortening and baking mix.
It will form little ball like crumbles.

In a food processor, grind cashews. Do not grind into a powder, keep it in little chunks.

In an oven safe dish layer strawberries on bottom.
Toss half the oats over the strawberries.
Next, add the crumble on top of that.
Add some ground cashews and more oats.
Bake in over for 35 minutes.
Serve hot and enjoy! xx
