Oat Fiber Strawberry Shortcake

Oat fiber is one of my favorite "new" products that I have been introduced to since starting the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating.  Last week I shared an amazing oat fiber bread recipe from AnaStacia P. and this week I am sharing a sweet variation of that recipe which makes a nice strawberry shortcake.

Oat Fiber Strawberry Shortcake (FP)

1/4 cup oat fiber
a couple of pinches sea salt
3/4 tsp. glucomannan powder
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2-3 tsp. Truvia and a sprinkle of stevia extract (or make it with all stevia extract to taste)
1/3 cup egg whites
3 T. water
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix dry ingredients in  a dish, then add wet ingredients and mix well. Cook in microwave for about 1 minute 30 seconds until it's only slightly wet on top. You'll have to play with it as each microwave varies.If you prefer not to use a microwave, you can bake this in a 350° oven for 20-25 minutes or until done. Once it comes out I dump it out onto a clean kitchen towel to cool.

Meanwhile, (or if you are smarter than me you will do this ahead of time) cut up some strawberries and sprinkle with Truvia. Allowing the strawberries to sit a while will make them juicier and more sweet. To keep this FP be sure use no more than 1 cup of strawberries.

Cut up your shortcake pieces into cubes.  They remind me of a spongecake.

Finally, put it all together...and squirt a bit of fat free Reddi-wip on top (not too much though...a true serving size is ridiculously small.)

Okay, this is way too good to be FP! A huge hit at my house. My son can't believe I will serve him this for breakfast, w a smile on my face. I did top his w 1-2 TB heavy cream, ok and mine. I'm guessing that kicked it into S. BUT we did only eat 1/2 each w a total of 1 c strawberries between us. Thank you Thank you. We love it!

So glad you enjoyed it Gina!

i am hoping to try this soon as it looks AWESOME, but have you tried with without the glucci? just curious if it would turn out ok without it... is it to thicken the batter? thanks!

Karen said...

I've never tried it without the gluccomannan. So, I don't know.

Unknown said...

I normally don't go on people's blogs but I tried this and I can safely say that the shortcake alone would taste very close to a shortcake from the store (without any of the other ingredients).

I tried substituting the glucomannan powder with xanthan gum because God only knows where you can get that stuff without ordering it online. Not sure if the recipe suffered or not.

I was wondering if you have made this a multiple reicpe? or would it bbe better to simply make several individual ones for my whole family? thanks!

I love strawberry. This is such a perfect desert to try next time. Thanks a lot for the inspiration.

How does using oat fiber for the fiber and zero net carb factor compare to using vital wheat gluten for the same reason? Have you used the two together before? Thanks for any input! This looks fantastic! Super info about oat fiber in general too. I've been adding it to my baking mixes (on my own) but not in the amounts you have. So glad to know it works even better to use more. Thanks so much!

Veronica said...

Thank you so much for this! About what size dish is this cooked in?


Hi! I was wondering what FP meant? Is it a special diet?

FP stands for Fuel Pull. It's part of the http://www.trimhealthymama.com/
way of life. I love it! I borrowed the book mid September and as of 4/27/16 have lost 27 lbs. I am addicted to sugar. The THM recipes use Setrvia so my sweet tooth is happy. I often have something sweet for breakfast and always have an evening dessert. Life is good on THM!
