red white and blue parfaits with honey shortcake

These patriotic treats are simple to make and quite healthy for a dessert


shortcake: (adapted from
1 1/3 cup whole grain flour (I used half kamut and half spelt or you could use a gluten free mix)
1 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk (could use a nut milk as well)

lightly sweetened whipping cream (I added vanilla and coconut sugar) or whipped coconut cream (chill 2 cans overnight, scoop out cream from top, add vanilla, desired sweetener and a pinch of sea salt and whip)
