grain free, gluten free, dairy free, falling-apart free biscuits

I suppose I could've just called these 
the best biscuits I've made so far.
Since, you know,
I perfected our whole wheat biscuits.
Right before we quit eating wheat....

Figured I'd type it up while the biscuits are still warm,
before I forget how I made them....

1 c homemade almond flour
1 c bought almond flour
(I'm sure you could use all bought almond flour,
but it's considerably more expensive than homemade.
All homemade will likely leave your biscuits crumblier)

Using a pastry blender, I mixed in
1/3 c. coconut oil
(I imagine you could use all of either,
but this is how I did it ;-)

Because I can never remember what recipes use baking soda
and what types use baking powder,
I did what I usually do: add a sprinkling of both.
I know - I am a disgrace to scientific cooks all over the world.

Then I added 4 x-large Braums' eggs
because if I can't get farm fresh eggs from chickens free to roam,
then they are the next best choice.

The dough seemed a bit juicy,
so added 3 Tbs coconut flour, 1 Tbs at a time.
Next time, I may use fewer eggs and eliminate the coconut flour?

Then I dropped the dough onto a cookie sheet
lined with parchment
- although, I could have just oiled it -
(I know this 'cause I had 2 biscuits that didn't fit on the sheet,
so I tested it and surprisingly, they lifted right off.)
and baked them for around 25 minutes, I think,
(I've already forgotten. That is seriously annoying!)
in a 350 degree oven

Spread with butter and peanut butter,
they almost tasted 


  1. Yummy!
    Almond flour has quite a bit of natural oil in them. When I made almond pancakes for a friend this weekend, she was surprised that I didn't oil the pan. ...If only she could have seen my first baking flop. Those poor cupcakes were drowning in oil!!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. that really looks sooo good! I will have to get some of this almond flour!
    I can almost taste it!
    You are a wonder!

  3. Ok. Biscuits here we come! I'll let you know how they turn out!

  4. here's hoping i can eat almonds soon! (the GAPS diet frequently cures food allergies) ...i had great success in coconut flour pancakes this week - yummm! not sure how i became pancake fanatic, because i was not that crazy about them growing up. I mean,they weren't bad, but i was not desperate for them. Nowadays, i can hardly get enough!
