Flaky, buttery, warm, dense, need I say more. These grain free biscuits satisfy every biscuit craving I’ve ever had. And yes, I have biscuit cravings quite often. Doesn’t everybody? Like straight up want to be Kentucky Fried biscuits. Uh huh that good I tell you. Of course without all the added hormone mimicking/interfering chemical ingredients. No biggie, right?!?
Speaking of Kentucky Fried, check out the ingredients list for their biscuits;
Kentucky Fried Chicken Biscuit Ingredients:
Enriched Flour Bleached (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Ferrous Sulfate, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Water, Partially Hydrogenated Palm Kernel, Soybean and Cottonseed Oil, Buttermilk, Sugar, Baking Soda, Salt, Sodium Aluminum Phosphate, Nonfat Milk, Sodium Caseinate, DATEM, Whey Protein Concentrate, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Whey, Wheat Protein Isolate, Natural Flavor. Liquid and Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Salt, Soybean Lecithin, Natural and Artificial Flavor, TBHO and Citric Acid Added to Protect Flavor, Beta Carote
I mean who doesn’t love a little trans fat (partially hydrogenated palm kernel, soybean and cotton seed oil), TBHQ derived from petroleum and a little more trans fat (Hydrogenated soybean oil), NOT! Maybe we could declare these death by a biscuit.
The truth, food additives are dangerous and in fact deadly to the cells in our body. The scary reality is that consumers can’t get their own hands on many of these chemicals that large food companies have access to, not that we would want to. Big Idea; don’t trust the food industry. They are out for profit, not your health.
Try making these simple grain free biscuits at home. You won’t regret it. Plus you can freeze them for morning sausage and egg biscuits or my favorite, Chicken Pot Pie Stew. Or add a little honey and make my Strawberry Shortcakes. Drool….
- 2 cups blanched almond flour, loosely packed
- ½ cup tapioca starch
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ cup butter
- 2 large eggs
- ¾ tsp vinegar or lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a bowl combine the Almond Flour, Starch, Salt and Baking Soda.
- To the bowl, add the butter.
- Cut the fat into the flour until the fat is about the size of a pea.
- In a separate small bowl whisk together the eggs and Vinegar.
- Pour mixture in with the flour and mix just briefly and gently until the dough comes together. It may feel a little wet.
- Dust a sheet of parchment, or your counter with additional starch. Gently pat the dough into a round and cut into 6-8 biscuits using a biscuit cutter or the top of a round glass. Use as much starch as needed to prevent sticking. (Note: I like to cut 3-4 biscuits and then pat the dough into another round before I cut the second 3 biscuits).
- Bake for 18 minutes.
