Grain-free Biscuits

Grain-free Biscuits: Jessi's Kitchen

Day 7 of my “Ten Days of Thanksgiving” may be my favorite because GRAIN-FREE BISCUITS! I grew up in the south where biscuits are in abundance along with sweet tea and fried chicken. Growing up my mom baked a lot and would make us some awesome buttermilk biscuits.

I honestly have really missed making a big brunch that included some biscuits. I have tried several gluten-free and grain-free versions and have never been super happy with them.

I recently stumbled across a new grain-free flour blend at my local sprouts. It is by Bob’s Red Mill and labeled “Paleo Baking Flour” and it is a mixture of almond flour, coconut, arrowroot and tapioca. I was super intrigued by it and decided to try making some biscuits with it. Honestly, I really liked the idea of buying one bag of flour instead of four. So I whipped up a batch of biscuits on a whim and they turned out SO great. I was kind of blown away. They were good but I knew they could be better so changed a few things and about 6 batches later they were perfect.

I mix some vinegar and coconut milk together to give these biscuits that tangy buttermilk flavor. I also was able to make these with a flax egg and I was super excited about.

I know I don’t usually post recipes with a flour blend but I would check your local health food store or you can even find it on amazon.

I like to roll my biscuit dough out really thick. I think it allows the biscuits to be a little larger and fluffier. When I do that I usually only get about 6 out of the batch. However, you can roll them out thinner and this recipe will yield a bit more.

I am pretty excited that we can have some awesome biscuits for our Thanksgiving table now and even Sunday brunch.

Enjoy!
