September is National Biscuit Month

September is

National Biscuit Month!

I don’t know about you, but as a Southerner, that’s pretty exciting to me.  It’s like it almost gives me a reason to eat biscuits every morning, or maybe all day!  If I do, it will need to be the almond flour kind, otherwise I might not be able to fit through the door at the end of the month.

Anyway, I have several biscuit recipes on the site already and I wanted to link to those.

Buttermilk Biscuits are delicious with homemade jam!

 

Sour Cream Biscuits are simple, delicious, and only need three ingredients!  Yummy served with Apple Butter.

 

Almond Flour Biscuits ~ Low Carb & Grain Free are so good you’ll almost feel guilty!

Almond Flax Bread ~ Low Carb • Grain Free • Wheat Free

I miss a good sandwich bread, so I wanted to try to make this when I saw a similar recipe.  This bread is sturdy and not real tall but can be sliced thin like I like it, so the loaf will make a few sandwiches.

BREAD

Almond Flax Bread ~ Low Carb • Grain Free • Wheat Free

1 cup blanched almond flour (I use the Honeyville brand)
2/3 cup golden flax seed meal
1 tablespoon coconut flour
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon aluminum free baking powder
3 whole eggs, room temp
¼ cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon local honey (I used sugar free maple syrup)

Preheat oven to 350º.
Grease a bread pan with butter, lard, or coconut oil.
In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour, flax meal, coconut flour, salt, &
aluminum free baking powder.

Using your mixer,  beat eggs, honey, water & oil together.
Add wet ingredients into dry and mix well. Let mixture rest in bowl for 5  minutes.  Place bread mixture in the prepared greased bread pan and bake for 30-35 minutes.  Let cool for 1 hour before removing bread from pan.

COOK’S NOTE:  This recipe makes a dense loaf that does not rise much, but is great toasted in butter and topped with  all natural fruit preserves.  I also used it to make a Black Forrest Ham-mayo-avocado sandwich that was really tasty.

Also optional:  I added sprinkled some poppy seeds over the loaf just before baking.

Looking for a sturdy wheat free biscuit to hold up some yummy sugar free pumpkin butter or maybe some sausage gravy?   Not exactly like grandma made, but close to it for sure.  And so tasty, you’ll almost feel guilty.

Almond Flour Biscuits ~ Low Carb • Wheat Free • Grain Free

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of almond flour
1 tsp aluminum free baking powder
½ tsp sea salt

Next, in a small bowl, whisk the eggs with a fork until they are slightly frothy, about 30 seconds. Blend the eggs in with the almond flour mixture until combined.  Place in the fridge for 20 minutes to allow the bits of butter to harden.

Divide the biscuit mixture into 4-6 portions and spoon on to a parchment lined baking sheet or into a well-greased muffin top pan. Bake right away for 10 -12 minutes.  Remove when golden brown.  Makes 4-6 biscuits.

Serve with butter and preserves or top the biscuits with your favorite sausage gravy.

Almond Butter Waffle Bread

This recipe is based on one I found over at 24/7 Low Carb Diner.


I used Almond Butter because I had it on hand and I didn’t want to wait for it to bake since my bacon was already done and I was wanting a BLT! 😀

So I cooked it in the waffle iron. It is a very substantial bread and has great texture.

Here’s my yummy BLT!  

Do not wait! Make this today if you’re needing some bread.  It is absolutely great!

Follow the 24/7 Low Carb Diner recipe and bake it in a loaf pan or cook it up like waffles if you can’t wait!
