As mamas, it can be a bit tricky to make treats that taste great while keeping the sugar count down.

Strawberry Shortcake with Lemon cream cheese muffins

Strawberry shortcake with lemon cream cheese muffins

It is that time of year when strawberries are on sale. After seeing organic strawberries on sale, I decided it was a shortcake day. We all know that organic strawberries can break the bank most of the time, so when they are on sale, I jump! 

Who doesn’t like strawberry shortcake! It’s the best!

I know organic eating can be expensive. We don’t eat completely organic, but I do my best to support organic when I can, which is most of the time. Strawberries are one of the foods you want buy organic as often as possible to avoid toxins.

All I can say, is these Muffins taste similar to a scone, but are softer. They are the perfect consistency for strawberry shortcake, with the yummy taste of a scone. You can even eat them plain, they are way to delicious with out the berries and whip too!

Growing up this was a staple in our home when it comes to dessert. This is one of my all time favorites. I never tire of it. I don’t recommend making it when you are the only one home, unless you plan on eating the whole batch!

The cream cheese added to the muffins and whip cream in just enough to make your taste buds dance a little, while finishing off with some lemon zest, and almonds for a bit of a crunch! In this recipe, I used a bit of coconut flour, and of course, my new found love coconut sugar!
