Paleo Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

Of course, since I’m trying to follow the Paleo diet, traditional biscuits are not on my list of things to eat. Thankfully, with a bit of playing around with my traditional recipe, I have discovered a pretty good Paleo biscuit recipe.

For those not familiar with the Paleo diet, it rules out all grains – even traditional gluten free grains like rice.  The Paleo diet does allow you to use things like almond flour and coconut flour in your baking.

This Paleo strawberry shortcake recipe uses almond flour so it is safe for both paleo and gluten free lifestyles.  There is no dairy so it’s perfect for those with a dairy allergy.  

To make this vegan, substitute stevia or maple syrup for the honey and use an egg replacer for the eggs.

The strawberries in traditional strawberry shortcake have been cooked in sugar which is really not necessary.  Fresh spring strawberries are juicy and sweet all by themselves.  

Slice and top your Paleo Strawberry Shortcake with fresh strawberries, organic and local, please.

Sticking with the Paleo diet can be a challenge. If you find yourself lacking in willpower, check out these tips for staying Paleo and these Paleo approved snacks.

There are a lot of delicious Paleo snacks you can enjoy. Just look for fresh fruit and recipes that do not have added sugar or grains. Or, grab a small piece of pure dark chocolate if you must have candy. It’s one of my husband’s favorites.

  6. Sounds delish! Just wanted to mention though- the headline says these are vegan, they are not. You may want to take that off the headline before a vegan comes and rips your head off.
    • Hi Gloria - If you read the recipe, it mentions that by using egg replacer, this recipe is vegan. If you keep the eggs in, it won't be. Hope you try it. It really is good!

    • Thanks, Bonnie. I know eggs aren't vegan but I mentioned using an egg replacer to make it vegan if desired.
  8. Going to share this with my cousin!  She recently went gluten-free, but LOVES Strawberry Shortcake.  I'm sure she'd love to have your recipe.
  9. This looks so good! I have never baked with almond flour. Do you get it at the regular grocery store or a natural store?
    • Bobs Red Mill is the brand I buy. I find it at our food co-0p but a larger store would have it in their gluten free area.
  10. I love that you used ALmond flour and natural sweeteners. I can imagine it's flavor already. I love baking with Almond flour. It's not as gritty as other flour substitutes and offers a great flavor too. 
  11. YUMMM Ellen, you did it again, another amazing recipe. This will be a hit with my kids, we all love strawberries. Gonna pin it and make this weekend for dessert
  12. Oh my goodness, thank you so much for sharing this. I am going to a BBQ next weekend and the hosts are on the paleo diet. This would be perfect to bring with me. 
  13. Yummy fun! This sounds like a great recipe, I have a lot of these ingredients on hand, can't wait to try it! And... I used to absolutely adore watching Strawberry Shortcake.  I used to also have the dolls that smelled like the fruits. There was strawberry, blueberry and even lemon!
  14. This looks AMAZING! I have a friend who has just switched to Paleo, I am going to surprise her with this! Thanks for posting!!
  15. My Aunt has serious problems when she eats wheat. She hasn't had strawberry shortcake of a very long time. I am going to surprise her with this. How very happy she will be.
  16. A close friend of mine just started a paleo diet and I know she'll love this, so I'll send it to her. Thanks, I'm sure she'll be making it tonight!! lol
