In my recent post, Foods We Love and How to Let Them Go, I challenge readers to ditch the foods that don't contribute to their highest expression of vitality,
specifically, gluten and dairy. While I can swear up and down that life is not over when you remove these foods, this recipe is all about proving it!
Thanks to a specific request from one of my email subscribers, I bring to you...
Butter* Bacon Biscuits!
2 ½ cups almond flour
½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 TBS honey
½ cup butter (that’s 1 stick, softened) or coconut oil
4-6 slices of cooked bacon, chopped
*I realize that butter is dairy, but you can read more about why I make it an exception in my diet here.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. In a large bowl, combine eggs and honey. Add the dry ingredients to the eggs and honey and stir gently until combined. Dice the stick of butter and cut it into the dough, along with the bacon. This is like criss-crossing two knives over and over again. It's ok to see small chunks of butter in the dough. It makes the texture of your biscuit wonderful.
For an artisan-style biscuit, drop by large spoonfuls onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet or you can use a glass to press out circle-shaped biscuits after rolling out the dough. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until browned on edges. Serve warm.
These tasty Bacon Butter Biscuits are good any time of day:
Breakfast - Slice one open and insert a perfectly cooked egg.
Lunch - Enjoy with a nice bowl of soup.
Dinner - Instead of a gut-busting bowl of pasta with bread, make spiralized veggies or spaghetti squash with homemade marinara and a Bacon Butter Biscuit!
Once you get the hang of swapping out dairy and gluten with alternative ingredients, your go-to comfort foods will make you feel as wonderful as they taste.
