Gluten-Free Drop Biscuits

Andy Anderson !


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.

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.

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.
