Paleo Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

This post has been sponsored.  All opinions are mine and mine alone.

Spring time means strawberries and strawberries mean 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.

If you’re like me, every time you think of strawberry shortcake, you think of Strawberry Shortcake, Apple Dumpling and the rest of the gang from the Strawberry Shortcake cartoon. You can watch that and a whole bunch of other classic cartoons on Netflix. Pile up a big plate of this Paleo Strawberry Shortcake recipe and tune into Netflix for all your favorites.

  6. That looks really good!! I should make some for Easter!

  7. 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!

  8. 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. 

  9. Yum. Strawberry shortcake is one of my family’s favorite desserts. I could eat it for breakfast! 

  10. Strawberry shortcake is awesome. I love that this recipe is gluten free so my whole family can enjoy it!

  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. Yum! That looks so good. Strawberry Shortcake is my favorite dessert! Thanks for the paleo recipe.

    I have made these before and think they are fabulous! I love almond flour so much! I have like 10 lbs here!

  14. Strawberry shortcake is one of my faves!

  15. I love this recipe, thanks for sharing. Pinned.

  16. 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. 

  17. This looks so good! I have never baked with almond flour. Do you get it at the regular grocery store or a natural store?

  18. I remember watching Strawberry Shortcake growing up! I love the kind you made, too. :)

  19. Looks good! I am really craving desserts right now after giving them up for Lent!

  20. I agree that strawberries don’t need sugar! They’re perfectly wonderful in an of themselves. This recipe sounds delicious.

  21. 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.

  22. I am about to blow your mind – I have never had strawberry shortcake. *gasp* Looks tasty!

  23. This is yummy, thanks for sharing :)

  24. This looks like an amazing recipe! Thanks for sharing. (PS – if it has eggs, it isn’t vegan.)

  25. 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!
