Almond Flour Biscuits

A friendly little recipe from Elana’s Pantry. I loved these dearly, mostly because I’m a breakfast sandwich fanatic. Give me a fried egg with tomato, avocado, and bacon between two slices of gluten-free bread, and I am one happy chef. Since going paleo, I hadn’t really found a good sub for my occasional breakfast sandwich (which, by default, means I had not had a breakfast sandwich in a year and a half).

I was in the mood for a biscuit and stumbled upon this paleo-friendly version. It doesn’t really rise like a regular biscuit and doesn’t have layers or anything. Also, because of the almond flour, has a sweeter taste than traditional biscuits. That being said, this recipe could be used in a savory or sweet context. I did, in fact, make a breakfast sandwich with them (I could slice down the middle without the halves breaking from lack-o-gluten).

Note the cute little leftover dough “leaves” on top!

Almond Flour Biscuits

2 ½ cups blanched almond flour
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup grass-fed butter or ghee (like Kerrygold)
2 eggs

note: Elana’s recipe calls for a sweetener like agave or honey, I omitted it.

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, salt and baking soda.
  3. In another bowl, blend together butter and eggs.
  4. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet until a dough forms.
  5. Roll out dough between parchment paper to 1 ½ inches thick.
  6. Cut the dough into biscuits using a mason jar lid.
  7. Carefully transfer biscuits to a parchment-lined baking sheet.

    Buns in the Oven.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes, until biscuits brown on the edges.
