Unexpectedly amazing high-protein easy Chocolate Strawberry Shortcakes! Made with chocolate protein scones and a protein powder yogurt mix, these chocolate strawberry shortcakes are healthy, sugar free, low fat and tasty!

Got this idea for a chocolate flavored strawberry shortcake recipe from someone on Instagram, so all concept credit goes there.

A real easy combination here though – a chocolate protein scone instead of the classic shortcake, and a mix of protein powder and yogurt to replace the whipped cream. This beauty is healthy and easy to assemble too.

Ingredients for Easy Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake Recipe!

This easy chocolate strawberry shortcake recipe needs just a few simple and healthy ingredients and have no butter or sugar – a low fat and low sugar recipe!

  • Whole wheat pastry flour for that lightness of the all-purpose flour, but with the nutritious benefits of whole grains
  • Chocolate Protein Powder to replace the sugar. I use the whey-casein blend from Quest Nutrition.
  • Unflavored Protein Powder to replace some of the flour (and carbs) in the recipe for a slightly low carb high protein shortcake recipe. Quest Nutrition again here since it’s a whey casein blend and bakes well.
  • Coconut Flour
  • A bit of 1:1 Zero Calorie Sugar Substitute – I use Lakanto, to keep this recipe sugar free; (code HAYLSKITCHEN for a discount here).
  • Non-fat Greek Yogurt another protein-packed ingredient
  • Baking Powder

For the Sugar-free Chocoalte Strawberry Shortcake topping:

  • Vanilla Protein Powder; Quest Nutrition whey-casein here again.
  • Non-fat Plain Greek Yogurt
  • Fresh Strawberries

Use hands to bring together.Knead the ONLY LITTLE till it comes together. Dough should be slightly wet, not ‘knead-able’.DO NOT OVER-KNEAD or scones will be tough and not crumbly.

Bake for 20 minutes until outsides are crusty, but still soft to touch. Toothpick inserted into center should come out clean.
