Spring time means strawberries and strawberries mean paleo strawberry shortcake, at least in my world. 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.
Paleo Strawberry Shortcake Recipe
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.
