Let’s Bake Us A Gluten Free Strawberry Shortcake

What you’ll need

Makes one 8 inch (20 cm) round gluten free strawberry shortcake

1 Cup of Mashed Bananas

3 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter

1/2 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1 Cup of Almond Flour

Handful of Walnuts

1 Tablespoon of Maple Syrup

1 Cup of Chilled Coconut Cream

Handful of Peanuts

10 – 15 Fresh Strawberries

For the Shortcake Base

Preheat your oven to 356 degrees F (180 C), then pop the walnuts in for 5 minutes, until lightly toasted. When ready, take them out to cool down.

In a medium bowl, mash the bananas, add the peanut butter, and mix well until combined. Next, roughly chop the toasted walnuts, add the almond flour, 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda, and mix.

Finally, pour your mixture into a *non-stick 8 inch (20 cm) round pan, and pop your shortcake base into the oven until a tooth pick comes out clean, about 10 – 20 minutes, depending on your oven. When ready, take it out, to completely cool down.

*If you don’t have a non-stick pan, simply lightly grease it with coconut oil.

When your vegan shortcake base has completely cooled, take the chilled coconut cream out of the fridge, and place in a bowl. Add a splash of vanilla, the maple syrup, and whip until stiff peaks form, then transfer to a piping bag. To assemble your gluten free strawberry shortcake, simply pipe the whipped coconut cream on top of the cake, and decorate with sliced strawberries and chopped walnuts. What are you waiting for? Dig in!
