  • 454 g / 1lb fresh strawberries
  • ¼ cup | 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla bean powder I love Harmonic Arts Botanical Dispensary Organic Vanilla Powderbut any other variety is ok - see recipe notes for subs


  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Line a baking tray with baking parchment or a silicone mat.
  • Wash and allow the strawberries to dry.
  • Hull the strawberries and cut in half. if you have any extra big ones cut into quarters.
  • In a bowl mix the maple syrup and vanilla.
  • Add the strawberries to the bowl and stir well until coated throughly in the maple vanilla mixture.
  • Pour onto the prepared tray and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and turn them all over.
  • Bake again for 15 minutes
  • Immediately scrape them from the tray and into a bowl or jar of some kind.Make sure you scrape all the jammy saucy bits in too.


The strawberries don't look saucy immediately but once you scrape them into a bowl, they get saucier as they cool.
Vanilla bean powder gives the best flavour. It might seem expensive but a little goes a very long way. My bag has lasted well over a year and is still going strong. If you can't find it then you could scrape the seeds from a vanilla pod instead. If you only have vanilla extract use ½ teaspoon but please bear in mind that the flavour will not be as good if you use that.
Store these Vanilla Roasted Strawberries in a sealed container in the fridge. They will keep for around 5 days
