• Grain Free Herbed Biscuits

    So many people are finding that they have sensitivities to wheat and/or gluten these days, or they just find improved digestion by eliminating it (as is the case for Paleo/Primal dieters), that challenges come up when trying to recreate a favorite dish without these ubiquitous ingredients.  Ditch the Wheat is a great website/blog for those of us needing alternative recipes.  Here is a winner I recently tried out so that I could make my favorite breakfast of all time: eggs benedict with homemade hollandaise!  Not a lot of esoteric ingredients, it came together quickly and easily and was really fluffy while holding together well and had great flavor.  What more could I ask for?

    Ingredients

    • ½ cup + 2 tbsp coconut flour *2.75 ounces
    • 2 tsp cream of tartar and 1 tsp baking soda (or 4 tsp aluminum free baking powder)
    • ¾ tsp salt
    • ½ cup cold salted butter, cubed
    • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
    • ¼ cup chopped fresh chives or green onions

    • 1/2 cup milk

    Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
    2. In a large bowl, whisk together coconut flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. With a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut butter until crumbly. Sprinkle with parsley and chives.
    3. In a separate bowl, whisk egg; remove and set 1 tbsp aside for glaze. Whisk in milk; pour over dry ingredients, tossing with fork to create ragged dough.
    4. Let dough sit for about 5 minutes.
    5. Line a mini loaf pan or muffin pan with appropriate liners or grease pan well.  Fill the mini loaf/muffin liners halfway with the batter.
    6. Bake for 12 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted and come out clean.
