Paleo Honey Biscuits
As most of my readers know, I have to eat both gluten-free and dairy-free due to severe food sensitivities. I do not eat bread for the most part, but sometimes I really want some type of bread or crackers. I recently made these great biscuits that are made with almond and coconut flours. This makes them lower in carbohydrates and higher in fiber than most conventional gluten-free bread. They are also lightly sweetened with honey. We use them as the base for a healthy strawberry shortcake and top the strawberries with coconut whipped cream. You can use regular whipped cream if not dairy-free
Paleo Honey Drop Biscuits
Yield: 8 biscuits
2 ½ cups blanched almond flour
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 large eggs, at room temperature
¼ cup honey
¼ cup almond or coconut milk
1/3 cup palm shortening
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the flours, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl and mix together. Add the eggs, honey and milk. Beat with a mixer until a loose dough forms. Add the palm shortening to the mixture and cut in with a pastry cutter or a dough hook on the mixer.
Hand shape 8 biscuits from the dough and place on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Let biscuits cool slightly before serving.
