I was wandering through Costco… I’m not normally a wanderer! As a single parent mother of 3 running a busy fabulous business I practically gallop from place to place. On this day though I was getting my new winter tires on and had 1.5hrs to spend in Costco…. I wandered the book aisle and came across Paleo Comfort Foods. I flipped it open and the first thing I saw was Coconut Tortilla’s… OMG, SOLD!
I did the rest of my shopping and sat down in the food court among all those eating Pizza’s, Hot Dogs and Icecream and read my new cookbook. I made my first recipe today… It was a hit!
I did tweak a little since I didn’t want to have 6 egg yolks waiting for a home (recipe called for 6 whites) + I increased the butter a little bit so they’d be more moist, more like my mama’s! They’re not the light and fluffy wheat biscuits, more of cross between a regular and cornmeal biscuit. They hold up well, we had them toasted and topped with coconut butter for breakfast. Would be a great base for an eggs benny too!!
- 3 eggs, whisked until very frothy
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 2 tsp Epicure’s baking powder
- 3 Tbsp butter or coconut oil
- a few grinds of Epicure’s Chili Garlic Salt
- Grated Cheddar (I put 1/2 cup into the batter and more on top) – omit cheese if you want
Mix flours, salt and baking powder. Cut in cold butter with your pastry blender or a fork. Put into the fridge until butter is re-chilled. Add cheddar, mix in eggs until just combined. Form into biscuit shapes, pop onto your parchment paper covered baking sheet and bake at for 12 minutes.
