Strawberry Filling

  • 2 lbs frozen strawberries
  • 2 Tbsp ghee or butter
  • ½ cup maple sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground cardamom
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp water

Biscuit Topping

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp maple sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 cup plain unsweetened kefir or buttermilk
  • ½ cup ghee melted


  • In a large cast iron skillet (at least 10-inches or larger), add in strawberries over medium heat. Gently toss strawberries together until they begin to release their juices, about 5-6 minutes.
  • Add in ghee all around the skillet and continue cooking/stirring until ghee has melted, about 2-3 minutes. Then sprinkle in sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, cardamon, and salt. Stir mixture together to fully incorporate and continue cooking until sugar has melted, another 2-3 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, add in cornstarch and water, and stir mixture together creating a slurry (thick sauce)Pour slurry mixture into skillet with strawberry filling and gently stir together. Then remove the skillet from heat and set aside while you prepare biscuit topping.

Biscuit Topping

  • In a medium-sized bowl: Whisk together both flours, baking soda, salt and sugar. Pour in buttermilk and melted ghee. Stir together until fully combined. Mixture will be somewhat thick. Take a large spoon and gently dollop spoonfuls of biscuit batter all over top of strawberry filling.
  • Place the skillet on top of a large baking sheet as cobbler may bubble over; then place into oven and bake for 30 minutes or until biscuit tops are golden brown in color and cobbler is bubbly.
  • Once done, allow the cobbler to cool for at least10 minutes.
  • Serve strawberry cobbler warm with vanilla ice cream and fresh mint leaves as garnish, if desired.
