Gluten & Grain Free Coconut Flour Biscuits

Coconut BiscuitsYesterday, I had an injection (well, two actually) in the joints by my spine to reduce the inflammation of my old back injury. Hopefully now all the physical therapy and osteopath visits will be able to heal it for good. Today is Friday, but I’m on convalescent leave from my out-patient injection at the hospital. First time in a hospital by the way.

Besides having a blissful weekday morning enjoying the birds in my garden and a 1/2 caff coffee with soy milk, I wanted to try out a new recipe. This one was ever so simple, adapted from one posted by the “It Takes Time” natural living blog.

While they aren’t fluffy Pillsbury biscuits, and have a distinct egg/coconut flavor, they are pretty tasty and make a good brunch food (especially when topped with honey butter!).

  1. Preheat oven to 400* Fahrenheit (living in Britain, I using the fan setting on my oven and cooked at 200* Celsius for the first 10 minutes, then dropped to 150 for the remaining 5 or so)
  2. Mix together the following:
    • 1/3 cup coconut flour
    • 4 organic eggs
    • 1 teaspoon honey
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • pinch of salt
    • 4 tablespoons of chilled butter, grated into the mix
    • approximately 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (adds some fluffiness)
  3. Form into 6 patties (using extra flour if it gets too sloppy) and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet
  4. Bake for about 15 minutes. This is one of those recipes you have to keep an eye on though, so alter time as needed.

That’s it. Told you they were easy. ;)

Happy Friday! Add some yoga and my day’s about set.
