Instructions

Instructions:

For the filling:

  1. Slice the strawberries and place in a bowl.
  2. Sprinkle over the sweetener and mix thoroughly. Allow to sit while the rest of the dish is prepared.

For the biscuits:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and place a non-stick sheet on a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, add in all the flour, baking powder, stevia/monkfruit sweetener and salt.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the melted and cooled coconut oil, vanilla extract and eggs.
  4. Gently stir the wet ingredients into the flour mixture.
  5. Using an ice cream scoop, take large tablespoons of the mixture, and place on the lined cookie shirt. Continue with the rest of the dough.
  6. Gently flatten the scones to about 1/2 “ thick using your fingertips. Optional: Sprinkle a pinch of stevia over the top of each scone.
  7. Bake for about 15 minutes, until firm and golden. Cool on the baking sheet.

To Assemble:

  1. Halve a biscuit and place a spoonful of the strawberry mixture on one half.
  2. Place a spoonful of whipped cream on top of the strawberries and place the other half of the biscuit on top.
  3. Top the whole biscuit with a few more strawberry slices and an extra dollop of whipped cream.
