Would you believe that this is my first time actually making strawberry shortcake? It is such a classic summertime dish that I knew that I had to make it. I have been wanting to try Gimme Some Oven's coconut oil biscuits for a long time and finally got to do so. I got some rhubarb from my Door to Door Organics order that I could not wait to use. What pairs better with rhubarb than strawberries?

I made the shortcake healthier by using whole-wheat flour and coconut oil. The strawberries are the main source of sweetness along with a little sugar. These turned out great and I would definitely make them again.

I love strawberry shortcake made with biscuits because it is not too sweet. I know that a lot of people are more accustomed to the angel food cake or similar type of shortcake but this is now I enjoy my shortcake. Strawberries are perfectly in-season right now and are amazing.

Rhubarb is currently in season is well and my mother-in-law just made the best strawberry rhubarb cheesecake so I was inspired to make something with rhubarb. I love that tart flavor mixed with the sweet strawberries. Any strawberry rhubarb dessert is a win in my book!

      3. Place the dough the on a lightly flour dusted cutting board. Roll the dough out until 1/2 inch thick. Use a glass to cut out biscuits. Place on a baking sheet.

      **If you plan on stacking these, wait until biscuits are cooled or else the mixture will slide right off the biscuit.
