Clean Biscuits

My mother-in-law made the best biscuits.  She used Bisquick but she had 2 secrets to make them outstanding:  One was to add cold, cubed butter.  The other was to add a pinch or 2 of salt to bring out the flavor.  That was what made her biscuits so delicious.  As a “clean” eater now, Bisquick is out, butter is out, so where does that leave me?  With almond flour and coconut oil!  Some foods just really need a biscuit to go along with them….scrambled eggs, berry compote, chili, baked chicken (instead of fried!).  So I came up with a biscuit that works with these foods, yet does not have wheat or dairy.  The dough seems a bit sticky but they came out nice and light!

Ingredients
  • 3 cups almond flour, plus 2 tablespoons for rolling out the dough
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the dry ingredients and stir to mix.
  3. In a small bowl combine the wet ingredients and mix well.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well.
  5. Place the dough on a sheet of wax paper or parchment and sprinkle the 2 tablespoons of almond flour on top to make rolling out less sticky. Roll out dough to about ¾ inch thickness.
  6. Using a 2" round cutter or a juice glass, cut out 12 biscuits (you may need to re-roll the dough after 9 or so biscuits) and place on a parchment covered baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool on a rack before serving.
