In the past few weeks, the boys and I have picked almost 50 pounds of strawberries. That sounds like a lot, doesn’t it?  But would you believe I’m actually considering going back for more….

Most of the berries went into jam (naturally-sweetened, pectin-free recipe here), pies, and salad dressing.  Of course we ate gobs and gobs of fresh berries.  And the rest?

The rest were turned into these delightfully easy Almond Coconut Paleo Strawberry Shortcakes!

Either way, they’re simple and delicious.  And egg-free, dairy-free, and grain-free. Woot!

Top with strawberries and coconut whipped cream and devour.

    Is the arrowroot powder mandatory? I’m pretty sure I have some hiding somewhere, but I didn’t know if the recipe really needed it/what’s its purpose?

      Hey Joanna, Arrowroot is a gluten-free thickener. Helps make baked goods more light and fluffy. I’ve used half arrowroot / half tapioca starch in this recipe (when I accidentally ran out of arrowroot) with good results.

    I want to make this! Practicallu drooling! Do you have any suggestions for a sub for arrowroot flour, maybe a smaller amount of coconut flour? I can’t do arrrowroot right now.

If you can do tapioca starch or potato starch, you might experiment with those.
