I am sooooooo excited about this recipe! The other day, I was craving biscuits – something that most would assume are a no-no if you don’t do gluten for whatever reason. Well, we all know what I think when it comes to someone telling me they can’t find a recipe for a food they want if they are gluten-free…challenge accepted.
While it’s true that most conventional recipes for biscuits do in fact contain gluten, I got creative with some coconut flour and some other substitutes to come up with an AWESOME recipe for gluten free biscuits made using coconut flour! They turned out perfect! Fluffy, melts in your mouth perfect!
You can totally enjoy these alone, or you can top them with whatever you would like. They are perfect for making biscuits and gravy, or for making egg biscuit breakfast sandwiches. They are so versatile – seriously! I ate two of them right out of the oven and topped one with a pat of butter and some honey.
I topped the other with some of my homemade cinnamon walnut nut butter (recipe here).
Both were delicious! I have a feeling these are going to become a regular occurrence in our household now!
GLUTEN FREE COCONUT FLOUR BISCUITS
Ingredients (makes 4 small biscuits:
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup coconut oil (liquid form)
- 2 eggs at room temperature (very important they are at room temperature)
- 1/4 cup almond milk at room temperature (once again, the temperature is important here)
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1.) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine the coconut flour and coconut oil in a medium mixing bowl, and stir to combine until a crumbly batter forms.
2.) Add the eggs and the almond milk, and stir to combine (this is where it is important that the eggs and almond milk are at room temperature – if they are cold, they will harden the coconut oil in the mixture creating major lumps). Add the baking soda and sea salt, and knead with your hands to mix completely and form a lump of batter.
3.) Divide the batter into four equal-sized parts, and roll each part into a ball. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet and press down slightly on each creating the shape you would like the biscuit to be.
4.) Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 19 minutes, give or take a minute.
5.) Transfer to a plate or bowl to serve as is, or use a sharp knife to gently cut the biscuits in half and top with desired toppings.
YAY!!! Gluten free flaky soft delicious biscuits!!! Enjoy! 🙂
