You asked for it, and here it is! Totally nut-free drop biscuits! I know nut allergies are very common, so I worked on this recipe over and over until I felt like it was a great match to my drop biscuit recipe that uses almond flour, without adding any other starches. Nut-free recipes can be a bit tricky, but I always love a good challenge! These drop biscuits are a little more flat and round than the almond flour version, but if you'd like them to puff up more, just stick the dough in the fridge for at least 2 hours, until it's very well chilled. I found that chilling the dough helped them to stand up more through cooking. They taste great either way!
These biscuits couldn't be any easier, 4 ingredients (okay, 5 if you include salt!) and a few minutes is all you need to get them in the oven! I gave these to my husband and his firefighter crew to try, and they approved as well! Since these little guys are made from coconut flour, they tend to be a bit drier than the other version I made, but they're amazing when slathered with ghee or honey – or both! Hope you love these guilt-less biscuits! Happy baking!
** Update – I added 1 tsp. of apple cider vinegar to avoid any possible metallic aftertaste that the baking soda can cause.
Makes 9 biscuits
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 1/3 cup ghee (I like using ghee for the flavor, but you can use any other cooking fat of your choice)
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place all of the ingredients in a food processor, and pulse until combined. Scrape down the sides if needed. Let the batter sit for a few minutes, the coconut flour takes a bit to absorb the liquid.
**No food processor? No problem! Simply mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, and the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined.
Drop large spoonfuls of dough onto the parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the tops are lightly browned and the biscuits bounce back when lightly touched. Enjoy!
