Gluten-Free Drop Biscuits

I think that this is a recipe that you will either love or... not so much :-)

I’ve been working more and more with gluten free alternatives to classical flour-based recipes. This recipe uses almond flour to create the base for the biscuits, and then a few more ingredients; including vinegar to finish them up… but more on that later.

They have a very nutty taste that is quite different than a typical biscuit.

So, you ready… let’s get into the kitchen.

Step-By-Step

1PLAN/PURCHASE
2Gather and prep your ingredients.
3Chef’s Note: Whenever possible, I usually try to buy ingredients from our local farmer’s markets, and I always attempt to purchase organic items. In today’s world of pesticides, chemicals and GMO’s, I really try to put the healthiest things into my body, and the bodies of my clients.
4Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat your oven to 330f (165c).
5Sift 2.5 cups of almond flour into a large mixing bowl.
6Chef’s Tip: Almond flour, if not properly stored, can turn rancid. Make sure you use only the freshest almond flour… Or any flour, for that matter.
7Add a level measure of baking soda, and salt.
8Whisk to combine.
9Add the eggs, honey, and cider vinegar to a small bowl and then whisk to combine.
10Chef’s Note: Why add vinegar? Well, the addition of an acid when using baking soda creates a chemical reaction and aids in the rising of the dough.
11Add the egg mixture to the almond flour.
12Stir with a wooden spoon until you form dough that is slightly wet.
13Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet, and use a spoon to drop the biscuits onto the baking sheet.
14Place in the preheated oven, and then bake for about 20 minutes, or until the biscuits are nicely browned.
15PLATE/PRESENT
16Serve with some nice jam, or maybe a plate of scrambled eggs with homemade sausage. Enjoy.
17Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
