Put the lime in the coconut- strawberry shortcake

Its another one of those Friday nights and we are watching DC CUPCAKES on TLC and husbands sweet tooth kicks in..... he wants a strawberry shortcake so....... I need to modify this to suit how we eat...... I once read in OXYGEN MAGAZINE to substitute flour with protein powder so I decided to give it a shot :) and try and make lime-coconut biscuits :)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Here is what you will need:

-1.5 cups vanilla protein powder

-1.5 cups grated coconut flakes

2 tsp baking soda

-2 eggs

-1/4 cup organic EVOO


-1/2 tbs lime juice

-10 large strawberries

-1/2 tbs coconut flakes

-1 packet of truvia

-mix your dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl..... create a little funnel in the middle of the dry ingredients. Mix in the eggs, evoo, faux butter and lime juice and mix just lightly mix together until its a clumpy dough (do not over mix).
Now drop about 2 tbs of dough about 2 inches apart of a greased baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.

***be sure to stick a toothpick in your biscuits and if they come out clean then they are done

Now slice strawberries put them in a bowl and mix with coconut flakes and truvia and let sit about 20 minutes so they get juicy :)

Now put your shortcake together and enjoy! We did
