{Grain-Free Thanksgiving} Almond Flour Biscuits

Okay so. To me, eating within a Paleo Framework is all about emphasizing whole foods.


As you probably know, I do enjoy a grain-free baked good ever now and again…and again…and again

Even though I do seem to make these treats all the dang time, I really only eat them once a week or so.

I think of them as special treats and focus on filling the rest of my day with real food.


The other day I was planning on having soup for dinner.

Just soup.

I knew my brain wouldn’t be satisfied with just soup.

So I decided to whip up some quick ‘n’ easy biscuits.

I was sitting on the couch, watching Suburgatory on demand, and generally being bored when I decided to bake something.

I just happened to have all of the ingredients for these in my little kitchen cabinet.

I can’t believe how good these turned out. They were just like “real” biscuits. They didn’t fall apart at all!

I dunked one in my seafood soup.

I dunked one in my beef stew.


Almond Flour Biscuits
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and whisk together.
  3. Combine the wet ingredients in a smaller bowl and whisk together.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk.
  5. Roll the dough into a ball with your hands and flatten into a "biscuit shape" on your baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

I’m thinking this is a perfect recipe for Thanksgiving day.

Something to introduce my non-paleo family (there aren’t many of them left) to the beauty of grain-free goodness.

What treats are you making for Thanksgiving this year?
