Copycat Bisquick Strawberry Shortcake

If you’ve been here a while, you know I looooove to make healthy copycat recipes for unhealthy treats like Cosmic Brownies, Dunkaroos, Thin Mints, Buckeyes, and so much more! This healthy strawberry shortcake is no exception! I went into this recipe wanting it to taste exactly like the Bisquick strawberry shortcake, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! You’ll have to tell me your thoughts once you try it for yourself though 🙂 I love how you can make it in biscuit form or in just a regular cake pan or spring form pan. Both options are very simple and easy!

How To Make Strawberry Shortcake

Just like all my banana bread recipes, you only need one bowl to make this healthy strawberry shortcake recipe! This strawberry shortcake is pretty simple to make! All you do is mix the dry ingredients together, blend in the cold butter with a pastry blender (or your hands), and then mix in the rest of the wet ingredients! Once you have the shortcake baked, you’re in business because all you need to do after that is just plop on the strawberries and whipped cream (or even better… ice cream!)

Gluten-Free Vegan Strawberry Shortcake

What I also love about this healthier gluten-free strawberry shortcake recipe is that it is completely vegan-friendly! All you need to do is swap in some vegan butter, use a dairy-free yogurt, and top it with some coco whip! Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Making vegan recipes is something that comes very naturally to me. Hence why I have vegan recipes for healthy millionaire bars, chewy trail mix cookies, pumpkin blondie cookie skillet, and so many more!

Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcake With Almond Flour

What I love about this recipe is that we use healthier flour alternatives like blanched almond flour and oat flour. I tested this recipe many times to get the perfect texture. You wouldn’t even know it’s made with these healthier flours! The oat flour gives the gluten-free strawberry shortcake its fluffiness, while the almond flour gives it the perfect tenderness, moisture, and slight crisp on the edges.

Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcake (Vegan + Easy!)

gluten-free strawberry shortcake

This Gluten-Free Strawberry shortcake is about to rock your world. You know the original Bisquick strawberry shortcake your mama used to make for you? Well, this is a healthy copycat version, and trust me, it will not disappoint!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 9 minutes
Total Time 24 minutes


For The Shortcake

  • 2 Cups Oat Flour (I make my own in my Vitamix Blender)
  • ⅓ Cup Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1½ Tbs Baking Powder (yes tablespoons)
  • ⅛ tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
  • ¼ Cup Melted Coconut Oil (I used refined)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ Cup Pure Maple Syrup or Honey
  • ½ Cup Plain Yogurt (I used non-fat greek, but you can also use a non-dairy yogurt)
  • 2 Tbs Water

For The Topping

  • 1½ Pints (about 2⅓ Cups Sliced) Fresh Strawberries (chopped whatever way you prefer)
  • 2 Cups Truwhip Whipped Topping, Cocowhip, Homemade Whipped Cream, or Coconut Yogurt (you can also use vanilla ice cream!)


1. Adjust oven rack to the middle position. Preheat oven to 425 F. and grease or line a cookie sheet (for biscuits) or 9x2 inch cake pan or spring form pan (see step 5 for this option) with parchment paper. 

2. In a medium bowl, mix together oat flour, almond flour, baking powder, and pink salt.

3. Add in melted coconut oil and vanilla extract. Mix until just combined. Add in the rest of the wet ingredients (honey, yogurt, and water), and mix until a sticky dough forms.

4. Biscuit option: Use a large cookie scoop to scoop out batter and place on parchment-lined cookie sheet (should make 8 biscuits). Use your fingers to press each biscuit down gently until they are ½ inch thick.

Baking dish option: grease a 9-inch springform pan or cake pan and spread dough into an even layer.

5. Bake 425 F. for 9-12 minutes until lightly golden on top and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in/on pan for at least 10 minutes.

6. Cut each biscuit in half and serve with desired amount of strawberries and whipped cream topping! Store leftover strawberry shortcake biscuits in an airtight container on the counter for up to 5 days (best when eaten right away though otherwise, they may dry out a little).
