Patriotic Berry Shortcakes

Servings 6
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes


  • 1 cup oat flour (I used homemade)
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 3 tbsp honey (or pure maple syrup)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (or melted coconut oil)
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • fresh berries
  • dairy free whipped topping (I use homemade)


  • Add all of the dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk together. Next, add all of the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until the batter is smooth and thoroughly combined.
  • Scoop the batter with a ⅓ cup measuring cup and place the batter on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. This recipe will make 6 shortcakes. Make sure to space the shortcakes several inches apart as they will rise while in the oven.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes while the oven heats up. Once the oven is ready, bake the shortcakes for 12-13 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of one comes out clean.
  • Once baked, remove the shortcakes from the oven and allow them to cool completely. Once cooled, slice them in half; simply glide a serrated knife through the middle of the shortcakes.
  • Layer the shortcakes with dairy free whipped topping, sliced strawberries, and fresh blueberries. Serve and enjoy!
