Oh, and I call these Paleo(ish) because I usually make them with a little brown rice flour, but you can replace that with tapioca flour instead if you're being strict about it. This recipe is pretty quick and easy, and makes about 10 biscuits.
4 eggs (from free range and pastured chicken). 3 eggs if they're from ducks. [Egg-free alternative = 4 tbsp of ground flax seeds + 1/2 cup water]
1 cup of almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour or rice flour
1 tbsp of honey
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp of fresh or dried herbs of your choice (optional)
1/4 tsp xanthum gum or guar gum
Water or hemp/nut milk until consistency is right
*I bet you could add fancy stuff to these to make them more like scones. Maybe dried cranberries, chocolate chips, blueberries, etc.
1. Melt the coconut oil and honey together in a little saucepan until liquidy.
2. Mix dry ingredients together in a big bowl.
3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
4. Grind the whole flax seeds in a coffee grinder (I have a coffee grinder for seeds only) and add the water in a little bowl. Let that sit for 5 minutes.
5. Combine wet ingredients and wet flax together in a separate bowl.
6. Combine all ingredients together in the big bowl and stir. Add water or hemp/nut milk until you get the constancy of the dough to be like cookie dough. Let this dough sit for a few minutes, because it takes a while for the coconut flour to absorb the liquid. You may need to add a little more water/milk after the dough sits.
7. Plop them on a cookie sheet (greased or ungreased). Press them into the shape you want, they won't rise much.
8. Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned at the edges.
I've done a rough calculation of the nutrition facts in one biscuit (if the full recipe makes 10 biscuits)...
Per biscuit (flax version):
P.S. If you have constipation issues, don't eat more than 2 flax biscuits at once. Too much insoluble fiber... argh!
