Ah biscuits. How much I do miss really crusty homemade biscuits slathered in butter. The kind I grew up loving were basically a flour bomb, but they sure were tasty! I especially loved the biscuits from KFC. Gasp! My fond memories of them led me to experiment in my kitchen. Of course they had to be gluten free. I came up with a Grain Free Biscuits recipe that can be used to make them sweet or savory!
These grain free biscuits are super versatile! If you want them sweet, add more honey. If you want them savory, reduce the amount of honey and add in chopped herbs or cheese. They always turn out great! I have made them savory for biscuits and gravy and sweet for a blueberry biscuit that my kids will gobble down. Also great for lunch boxes!
Move over KFC, there is a new biscuit in town!
Grain Free Biscuits
- 2 1/2 cups almond flour — where to find
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 4 pastured eggs, plus 1 more if you want to brush egg on top (if you want to make them egg-free, use THIS substitute)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil — we love this brand (if you use coupon code: REALFOOD you get 10% off too!)
- 1-4 Tbsp honey (more or less depending on if you want a sweet or savory biscuit)
- cinnamon (optional)
- blueberries (optional)
- herbs, if you want them savory
- cheese or nutritional yeast (for a cheesy flavor)
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir until well combined
- In a small bowl combine eggs, coconut oil, honey and optional ingredients.
- Combine wet and dry ingredients in the mixing bowl and stir to combine
- We LOVE to make them with blueberries!
- I did not list an amount of blueberries because everyone is different. I love to add lots of little wild blueberries so you are sure to get a few in every bite!
- Cover and place in the fridge for at least an hour so it thickens up. You can also leave it there overnight
- When chilled, use a cookie scoop to scoop the dough onto a Silpat lined baking sheet
- Flatten the biscuits using the bottom side of a glass. I find that wetting the bottom and twisting as you press makes the perfect flat biscuit
- If you want a nice glaze on your biscuit, brush with beaten egg
- You can also dust them with cinnamon or coconut sugar for sweeter biscuit
- They turn blue with some blueberries added
- Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes
- Allow to cool on drying rack
- Store in an airtight container, preferably in the fridge. Lasts up to one week. Makes approximately 24 biscuits
