Health Benefits of Strawberry Shortcake Sourdough Cookies

But first, what is sourdough?

Our ancestors have been eating and enjoying sourdough, a nutritious food, as an essential part of their diet for over 6,000 years. Sourdough is made through sourdough fermentation, the process of fermenting grains with a probiotic culture.

Why are sourdough cookies gut healthy?

Sourdough, the ancient practice of fermenting grains with a probiotic culture, is an incredible tool that unlocks deep nutrition in the foods we love most. Sourdough cookies offer a plethora of benefits, thanks to their unique and natural fermentation process using sourdough starter. This slow and natural fermentation allows beneficial bacteria and wild yeast to work their magic, breaking down gluten and phytic acid, making the cookies easy to digest. As a result, nutrients like B vitamins, iron, and minerals become bio-available. The lower glycemic index of sourdough cookies ensures a steady and sustained release of energy (no energy crash!). But the goodness doesn’t end there – the fermentation process also synthesizes prebiotic fiber which promotes a healthy gut microbiome. All these benefits combined make sourdough cookies a delicious and gut healthy treat!

Description

My very favorite soft and chewy strawberry shortcake sourdough cookies with chunks of rich white chocolate in every bite! These gut-healthy sourdough cookies are bursting with fresh strawberry flavor and are made with simple ingredients like coconut oil and fresh strawberries.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 100105g Organic All Purpose Flour* (I used Organic King Arthur All Purpose Flour)
  • 100g Cane Sugar, Coconut sugar works perfect too but cane sugar helps achieve a bright pink color
  • 40g Fresh or Frozen* Strawberries
  • 40g Melted Organic Refined Coconut Oil
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 22g Sourdough Starter (Active Starter)
  • 2g Sea Salt
  • 1/8 + 1/16 TSP Baking Soda
  • 1/2 White Chocolate Bar, Chunks (I used Eating Evolved)


Instructions

  1. PREPARE EGG: In a small bowl, whisk 1 egg. Using a spoon, add 27g to a medium sized bowl.
  2. Prepare Strawberries: If using frozen, please see notes section. Dice strawberries on a cutting board. Next, add to a bowl and drain as much of the juice as you can.
  3. ADD FIRST INGREDIENTS: Now, melt coconut oil until it becomes liquid (warm but not hot). Add coconut sugar, diced strawberries, sourdough starter, salt, and coconut oil to the medium bowl with the egg.
  4. MIX: Using a spoon, mix ingredients together until combined. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. Mixing wet ingredients prior to adding flour and baking soda will help achieve the perfect cookie texture.
  5. ADD AND COMBINE: Now add flour, white chocolate chunks, and baking soda. Using the back of your spoon and/or your hands combine all ingredients until you form a ball.
  6. STORE DOUGH: Place the dough covered in a small Tupperware or wrap it in plastic wrap. Be sure the dough is tightly sealed so it doesn’t become dry on the outside.
  7. FERMENT DOUGH: Ferment the covered dough at room temperature for 10+ hours. You can ferment overnight or during the day, whatever works best for your schedule.
  8. PREHEAT OVEN: When you’re ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C).
  9. DIVIDE COOKIES: Divide and roll the cookie dough into 10-12 cookies, depending on how large you want your cookies to be. I like each cookie to weigh around 20-30g.
  10. BAKE COOKIES: Bake for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned on the sides.
  11. LET COOKIES COOL: Remove from the oven and let cookies fully cool on the baking sheet. Enjoy!
  12. STORING: Store sourdough cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days or in the refrigerator for 6 days. To reheat, bake in a 350°F (177°C) oven for 5 minutes.

Notes

Frozen Strawberry Instructions: If using frozen strawberries, preheat oven to 350°F (177°C) and thaw for 3-5 minutes. You want to bring them to room temperature but not become warm and bursting.

Freezing Instructions: Freeze raw or baked cookies in a closed container for up to 3 months. Thaw and reheat (or bake) as you like!
