The “Personalized”, Coconut Flour Drop Biscuits (grain free, gluten free)
Posted Dec 09 2012 5:41pm
These "ugly duckling", coconut flour biscuits can have a "face that only the cook can love", but personalizing them to whatever tickles your fancy, makes them a beautiful personalized creation..
Currently, my thing is mixing in a few diced herbs such as rosemary and chives, and a little diced apple, and occasionally, some quality grass fed cheese.
And to set out my Sunday Morning "Chill Time" with my biscuits, I will dip them piping hot into a little quality Soliga Honey, in a saucer sprinkled with a little Ceylon Cinnamon. Now that's good eatin', those store bought and fast food, low quality ingredient, albeit perfectly round pretty "conventional" biscuits can't temp me like these drop biscuits…….
Coconut Flour Drop Biscuits
1/3 cup sifted Organic Coconut Flour
¼ cup Unrefined Organic Virgin Coconut Oil or butter
4 pasture raised eggs
¼ cup quality honey (my fav is Soliga Honey)
¼ teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
¼ teaspoon baking powder
Suggestions for personal touch
*Diced Herbs and Diced Organic Apples (my current fav!!!)
*Chocolate Cacao Nibs and Honey (the honey balances out the naturally bitter raw chocolate)
*Grass Fed Cheese, with finely diced quality pasture raised diced cooked turkey sausage
*Diced Papaya and Lemon Zest with Cinnamon
*Garlic and Quality Grass Fed Cheese
*The list is unlimited!!!!!
Blend together eggs, butter, honey and salt. Combine coconut flour with baking powder and whisk into batter until there are no lumps. Mix in other ingredients if applicable. Drop batter by the spoonful onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 205 Degree C (400F) for 14 to 15 minutes. Makes about 8 biscuits.
I like to pour a little Soliga Honey on a saucer and sprinkle in a little Ceylon Cinnamon, and proceed to dip my piping hot biscuits.
Butter is not a sin, but one should try butter from grass fed cattle. Not only healthier, but incredible taste!!!
