A Health-ier Strawberry Shortcake (featuring spelt and millet biscuits)

A Health-ier Strawberry Shortcake (featuring spelt and millet biscuits)

The trade off is, nuttier and heartier flavors, increased fiber content, increased protein content, increased vitamin and mineral content, NO carb/sugar crash (because whole-grains are lower glycemic), and you feel more satiated faster, which means you won’t feel the urge to go back for seconds and consume even more calories! So basically it’s a win-win, and everyone that tried these little babies absolutely loved them. They even appreciated the dynamic flavor each component brought to the dish, without missing the sweetness overload most strawberry shortcakes possess. And who needs all that extra sugar when you can drown your biscuit in fresh strawberries bursting with natural sweetness? Cheers to strawberry season – get pickin’!
