Since I’ve embarked upon my 30 days with no dairy or grains, I did get a craving for something at least resembling a baked item. And these, luckily, hit the spot! Do try them, you’ll fall in love with them (and their glorious smell emanating from the oven is prize enough! We’ve enjoyed them plain, spread with nut butter, or just buttered. Marvelous. I don’t feel like I’m missing a thing!
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon butter 1 egg + 1 egg white
2 tablespoon Splenda for baking (or honey) (Optional but lovely: add diced apple and cinnamon)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, salt and baking soda
- In a second bowl, melt butter and stir in eggs and Splenda.
- Stir the dry ingredients into the wet until a nice dough forms. Add cinnamon and apple if using.
- Form into 8 biscuits (cylinders, balls, random blobs, it doesn’t matter) and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 14 minutes.
