These turned out pretty good, so I thought I would share the recipe!
It’s kind of based on the 1-minute muffin recipe. When going grain free, the biggest challenge is wanting baked goods. You all know I love the coconut flour, but I wanted to try the almond flour as it is a little easier to work with. Coconut flour soaks up moisture like a son of a gun! Anyway, the best price I found on almond flour is from Honeyville Grain.
If you join their coupon club, they periodically send 10% off email vouchers, plus there is a flat shipping rate, which makes the 5# bag pretty economical and less than buying it in the store!
Anyway, back to the recipe. This was designed for the toaster oven and to just make 2 biscuits.
- 1 egg
- 42 grams of almond flour (approx 1/3 cup)
- 1/2 tsp liquid oil
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder *
- pinch of salt
- pinch of oregano and basil
In a small bowl, beat the egg. Then add the rest of the ingredients.
Mix well to make a thick batter:
Line your toaster oven baking tray with a piece of parchment paper.
Divide the batter into 2 portions and spread out to make rounds about 1/4 inch thick or so.
Bake in the toaster oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Remove to a cooling rack and enjoy!
The texture is nice on these. Kind of biscuity and bread like with a nice crumb.
I recommend a bit more salt for them. I also think that added a little shredded cheddar to the batter would be really, really good!
Nutritional stats: Makes 2 biscuits. Each biscuit is 177 calories, 15 grams of fat, 5 grams of carbs, 2.5 grams of fiber, 7.5 grams of protein
Keep in mind almond flour is fatty, so that is why the fat content is high on these. I am not concerned about that, but then I am eating 1 and not 3 of these at a time.
I could see using one of these for the base of a mini pizza, too. I was hoping to be able to slice it in half and use as a bun, but it might be just a bit thin for that. I will have to try it and see.
* I do realize that most baking powders have a bit of cornstarch in them, so if the miniscule amount matters to you, there are brands out there that are completely grain free.
