Primal Biscuits

Okay, so this is the recipe I intended to make from Fast Paleo – Cheesy-Cheese Garlic Biscuits, but um, yeah, I apparently think I have more ingredients in my pantry than I actually do because I was missing a good chunk of the ingredients!

Alas, I thought on my stinkin’ toes, and improvised.

What you need I used

3 tbsp coconut flour

1/6 cup flaxseed (had two packets of coconut flour, not almond, sigh)

1 tsp baking soda (I don’t even know if this is a suitable sub for baking powder – don’t judge me for not being a baker whatsoever)

¼ tsp garlic powder

2 tbsp pastured butter, softened

¼ cup heavy cream

¼ cup Parmesan shavings (I didn’t have any grated, nor did I have any cheddar grated, sigh)

1 egg, slightly beaten

What you do

Preheat oven to 350º. Mix all dry ingredients (even all the wrong ones). Then mix in rest of ingredients. Make 9 small biscuits on a greased baking sheet. Flatten them a bit. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. The recipe calls for 12-15 minutes, but apparently I have a beefy oven because at 10 minutes mine were definitely ready.

Verdict?

Maybe because I didn’t use all of the right ingredients (since I am a spaz), but these came out a bit dry. They tasted pretty good but definitely could use more moisture or fluffiness. I’ll be first to admit that I’m not a baking queen at all, I could use some tips (making grain-free baked goods more fluffy & moist).
