This biscuit recipe is a great addition to your repertoire. The biscuits are great with butter and jam! Or just jam! They can be sliced in half and made into sausage sandwiches or used for biscuits and gravy! Crumble them up, top with your milk of choice and some lightly sweetened sliced strawberries, and you’ve got strawberry shortcake!
I’ve served these when I host coffee for the homeschooling moms and at holidays in place of rolls. They are easy enough that my daughters made them for me for Mother’s Day one year, placing them daintily on a lovely plate with the jam in an adorable glass bowl.
My sister requested the recipe yesterday and this is an easy way to share it, not only with her, but with you!
Almond Flour Biscuits
(Makes about 12 biscuits, depending on the size)
2 and 1/2 cups of almond flour (I prefer Honeyville, but Bob’s Red Mill or another blanched almond flour will work fine for this recipe.)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup of olive oil
1/4 cup of honey or maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius).
Mix all ingredients together very well in a medium-sized bowl. (Alternatively, you may feel free to mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl, beat the eggs a bit in a different bowl, add the wet ingredients to the egg bowl, and then mix all the ingredients together well. I use the one bowl, mix-well method and I’m happy with the turnout.)
Use a tablespoon to drop about 12-15 rounded mounds onto Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet. They don’t really expand out much so you can place them fairly close together without worry. If you make them too large, they don’t get done in the middle.
Bake until lightly browned or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a biscuit comes out clean. Depending on how your oven bakes and biscuit size, this could take anywhere from 12-20 minutes. Do not overbrown. Watch closely.
Allow to cool before attempting to slice.
Variation for savory biscuits: Add 1/4 cup of diced onion and a teaspoonful of garlic powder.
Family “gustar” report: A very good report. Everybody likes them, even a finicky brother-in-law who gets very nervous when he hears the words “gluten-free.” (However, they don’t like the savory ones as well.)
Wishing you all the best in all the things that count! ~~Terri
