coconut flour biscuits


I promised myself I would do some baking and some projects over the long weekend, and I did it!  I baked these coconut flour biscuits.  These were so simple to make and they turned out really well.  They reminded us of these cornbread muffins, but grain- and gluten-free, which made Mr. A very happy.

this is what they looked like before I popped them in the oven (I shaped them into little discs)


We had them with my mom's amazing homemade blackberry jam.

Here's the recipe!

Coconut Flour Biscuits
adapted from The Gluten-Free Homemaker

makes 12 biscuits


Ingredients
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil  (I just popped the coconut oil in the microwave for 10 seconds)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • ⅔ cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
Directions
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a larger bowl, beat together the coconut oil, eggs, and honey (we used a whisk).
  3. Add the flour mixture and beat until well mixed.
  4. Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Shape into disks approximately 1/2 inch thick and 2½ inches in diameter. They will spread a little, but you can definitely fit 12 on one large cookie sheet.
  5. Bake at 400F for 15 minutes until golden brown on top.
  6. I put them on a wire rack to cool, but you can eat them almost immediately.  They're super-delicious when they're warm.
Enjoy!
