Easy Peasy Strawberry Shortcake - A tasty and healthy treat that is perfect for summer! #HealthyTreats #RealFood #SugarFree #CleanEating

Who’s ready for a healthy treat?! We are big on these at our house. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a treat now and then that is made with pure, health promoting ingredients. Everything from Mint Dole Whip and Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches to Healthy Chocolate Zucchini Bread and Sourdough Carrot Cake, we LOVE guilt free treats!

When it comes to the healthy scale this Strawberry Shortcake is high on the list! Strawberries are high in antioxidants, are heart healthy, can help protect against cancer and are high in manganese. Honey and maple syrup are natural sweeteners and are infinitely better for you than even organic sugar. They also have a host of benefits and vitamins and minerals. The buttermilk, coconut oil and cream (in the Sugar Free Whipped Cream) are all excellent sources of healthy fats and Chef Brad’s Wonder Flour gives you the benefits of 3 whole grains! See? Totally delicious and totally guilt free 🙂

Easy Peasy Strawberry Shortcake

Ingredients

Directions

Cream together coconut oil, honey, maple syrup, vanilla, eggs and buttermilk in a large mixing bowl. Add dry ingredients and beat with a hand mixer until light and fluffy. Pour into a greased 8×8 pan and bake at 350º for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Watch closely. If the edges start to brown too much reduce heat to 325º. Top with Strawberry Topping and Whipped Cream.

Strawberry Topping

Directions

With an immersion blender or fork, blend or mash 1 ½ cup of strawberries. Add desired sweetener to taste and mix well. Pour over Shortcake and garnish with remaining berries and Whipped Cream.
