Almond flour biscuits are just as easy to make as any other biscuit. They take about 10 minutes of prep and 20 minutes to bake.
If you have never made biscuits you are missing out. They are the easiest “bread” to make and so versatile. You can customize this recipe with other herbs and spices. In fact, I bet you can expect to see some more biscuit recipes from me soon! Cheesy biscuits, bacon biscuits, and maybe a sweet biscuit variation too!
It is possible to use salted butter if that’s what you have, just omit the salt. I have also made it with the butter flavored coconut oil and that was super delicious too! And honestly I think it is better when you can “cut in the fat” but I have made it with warm coconut oil in its liquid form and it worked out just fine too. That leads me to believe you could make olive oil biscuits as well.
- 1½ cups almond meal
- ⅓ cup of unsalted butter, coconut oil or shortening
- 4 egg whites
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- Cut the fat into the almond meal until you have pea sized pieces
- In a separate bowl whisk together the egg whites, baking powder and salt until frothy
- Add the egg white mixture to the almond mixture and stir to combine. It will look thin but the almond flour will absorb the liquid
- Line a baking sheet with parchment and spoon the mixture into 10 biscuits (I used an ice cream scoop)
- Pat down the biscuits slightly
- Bake at 350F for 20 minutes
