Strawberry Shortcake | Low Carb | Keto

Makes 8 Servings


Ingredients:


Biscuits/Shortcakes:

1 cup almond flour

1/8 tsp salt

1 T baking powder

4 egg whites

2 T chilled butter, cut into pieces

2 T Swerve, granular (or other sweetener)


Whipped Cream Topping

1 C heavy whipping cream

4 T Swerve, confectioners style (you can use granular Swerve)


1 Cup Fresh Strawberries, sliced


Directions:


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a muffin pan or cookie sheet. With an electric mixer, whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. In a separate medium bowl, mix the almond flour, baking powder, salt, and Swerve. Cut the butter into the almond flour mixture with a fork or a pastry blender until the butter pieces are the size of small peas. Gently fold the dry mixture into the egg whites. Spoon mixture into muffin cups or spoon onto a cookie sheet to make 8 servings. Bake for 11-15 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes.

2. In a bowl, add heavy whipping cream and Swerve. Whip cream cream until peaks form. You may adjust the sweetness to your liking by adding more or less sweetener.

3. Clean and slice strawberries.

4. Slice biscuits in half, top with strawberries and whipped cream


Note: I find making these biscuits works best if baked in a prepared muffin tin. After baked slice each biscuit[muffin in half, top with berries and whipped cream.


Enjoy!
