These biscuits are so moist and delicious! No oil or butter needed here. They’re a great alternative to those white-flour, no-nutrient, lay-in-your-belly-like-lead biscuits. No, they’re not as fluffy. Rather, you know you’re eating something good for you… a bit more substantial.

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 325° F.
  2. Add the apple cider vinegar and sweetener to the milk, stir gently and set aside (it will curdle and thicken).
  3. Mix the flax meal with the water and set aside.
  4. Stir the remaining (dry) ingredients together in a bowl.
  5. Add the flax mixture, the sweetener and the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir well to combine.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a cutting surface such as a large cutting board or a marble slab.
  7. Shape the dough into an oval, about 3/4 inch tall.
  8. Work in more almond flour if the dough is too sticky, too wet, or otherwise misbehaving.
  9. Use a 2 3/4 inch biscuit cutter to cut into biscuits. You could also just use the ring portion of a mason jar lid.
  10. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.
