These beautiful, delicious (and secretly healthy) Strawberry Buckwheat Shortcakes take only five minutes to make and five minutes to “bake.”  These shortcakes contain the healthiest of ingredients and are a real treat…  and a treat without the guilt!

Healthy Microwaveable Buckwheat Strawberry Shortcakes (low fat, high protein, gluten free, vegan)

Yield: 3 cupcakes


  • 7g (1 tbs) Ground Flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 62g (1/4 cup) Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 4 packets Truvia (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 60g (1/2 cup) Buckwheat Flour*
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 3 Strawberries, sliced
  • Natural Whipped Cream (I used Soyatoo Rice Whip)


  1. Place 3 silicone cupcake molds (or molds of choice) on a plate for easy transfer.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the flax and almond milk. Stir in the applesauce, truvia and salt.
  3. Stir in the buckwheat flour, then the baking powder. Scoop into the molds and microwave for about 4 minutes and 30 seconds, or until surface springs back when tapped. Remove cupcakes from molds and lay them on their sides, let cool slightly.
  4. Slice the strawberries.
  5. Slice each cupcake into 3 rounds. Place the first round down, top with whipped cream and strawberries, and repeat with the next cake round. Serve immediately.


*You can try this recipe with another flour if you like, but do not use oat flour... take it from me... you will get dense and rubbery cupcakes capable of bouncing off the floor.

This recipe is: low fat, low sugar, high fiber, high protein, gluten free, vegan!

    Looks great! Can you sub whole wheat flour for the buckwheat?

  2. these look great, but i don’t buy that they are “complete” in protein…

      Hi Zosia, buckwheat is a complete protein, just like quinoa and soy. The protein quality is slightly lower than chicken or fish, for example, but it is complete nonetheless 🙂
