Okay so. To me, eating within a Paleo Framework is all about emphasizing whole foods.
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.
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 dunked one in my beef stew.
- 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
- Preheat your oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine the dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and whisk together.
- Combine the wet ingredients in a smaller bowl and whisk together.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk.
- Roll the dough into a ball with your hands and flatten into a "biscuit shape" on your baking sheet.
- 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?
