Almond Flour Strawberry Shortcake

If you enjoy baking with almond flour, you have got to try these almond flour shortcake biscuits with sliced strawberries. They are the perfect keto recipe for strawberry season.

Yeah! It’s strawberry season! Summer is the perfect time for fresh berries and strawberry shortcake is one of my favorite summer berry recipes.

Of course, you can also create this shortcake recipe with blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries. Any fresh fruit will work.

To keep this refined sugar-free, you can try maple syrup. Or, if you are not keto, use your favorite granulated sweetener. Almond flour shortcake is a fantastic recipe either way.

Do I need to use fresh strawberries?

I prefer fresh summer strawberries but if they are not in season or you can’t find them at the store, you can use frozen strawberries. Just make sure to thaw them before adding them to the almond flour strawberry shortcake recipe.

Is this gluten-free?

Yes, this almond flour strawberry shortcake recipe is gluten-free since we are using almond flour. You could also use gluten-free all-purpose flour if you prefer but the texture will be slightly different.

If you want a gluten-free strawberry shortcake, any gluten-free flour will work provided you use a one-to-one replacement.

How to store & freeze this strawberry shortcake cake?

You can store this strawberry cake in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze it for up to 2 months. I like to individually wrap each slice of cake and then place them all in a freezer-safe bag. When you are ready to enjoy, just thaw overnight on the counter or in the fridge.

sprinkling sugar on berries

  • Lay one half of the almond flour biscuit on a plate, top with some sliced strawberries and some whipped cream. 
  • Place the top onto the biscuit, and drizzle with the strawberry sauce. 
  • Top your almond flour strawberry shortcake with more whipped cream before serving. 

Whipped cream substitutions

If you don’t want to use dairy whipped cream on your almond flour strawberry shortcake, you can use dairy-free whipped cream made from full-fat coconut milk. Or, try cashew cream cheese frosting on your strawberry cake.

Or, you can use dairy-free whip cream. You can adapt these gluten-free strawberry shortcakes to a variety of diets.

Keto strawberry shortcake sweetener ideas

To keep this a paleo or keto dessert, you will need to use a sweetener like Swerve. If you’re not concerned with the glucose in the strawberry shortcake, any granulated sweetener will work. Or, you can try maple syrup.

For a strictly paleo strawberry shortcake, leave out the sweetener entirely. This will affect the taste but it will be a paleo strawberry shortcake recipe.

I hope you enjoy this easy strawberry shortcake recipe. You can use the remaining sliced strawberries in a smoothie or on your yogurt.
