Southern Style Biscuits

This is a great go-to recipe that is very versatile and tastes great.  They look and feel like traditional biscuits but this recipe blows the old flour biscuits out of the water nutritionally.

These biscuits are great served with butter, with your favorite soup, or topped with berries and stevia sweetened whipped heavy cream.

photo2 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup melted coconut oil, organic butter, or ghee
2-3 tablespoons erythritol (like Swerve) or xylitol
2 organic eggs
Juice of 1/2 small lemon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or use a baking stone.

In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, salt, baking soda, and sweetener.  In a separate bowl mix the eggs coconut oil, and lemon juice.  Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until combined.  Drop by 1/4 cups 2 inches apart on to the baking sheet and form into biscuit shapes with your fingers.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until just golden brown on top or a toothpick inserted into the center of a biscuit comes out clean.  Serve warm.

  2. I’ve been on the advanced plan for over 2 months, and these biscuits were a huge let down. They did not look or feel like regular biscuits, and besides being horribly grainy, they did NOT taste great.

    • Hi Cheryl. I’m sorry yours didn’t turn out as expected. They always turn out well for me and my whole family eats them. They are not as flaky as regular biscuits but are somewhat fluffy and will keep their shape. They should not be grainy at all. I would suggest maybe trying a fine ground almond meal (make sure it is also blanched)!to see if you get a different result. Also, be sure not to overlook them as they will become dry and start to fall apart (which may resemble graininess). Let me know if you try again and if they are better. Blessings and congrats on 2 months of the Advanced Plan!
