    Does anyone have a recipe for primal biscuits using almond meal or coconut flour? I've tried one but it didn't work really work.

    I sure don't, but I'm eagerly hoping for someone who does...biscuits are next to godliness.

    Something along these lines? I haven't tried them myself but it's on my To-Do list.

    I tried this one recently, it was quite good and not too eggy -- but do make sure to squish them down, otherwise they get big cracks on the surface!

    I made the coconut muffins from the free coconut cookbook on MDA, and you could hypothetically sub these in for biscuits.....But coming from someone who was a very good baker in my former to primal life, I'm talking flaky & buttery pie crusts, perfect homeade cakes, etc., these don't cut it for regular biscuits. I preferred cat-killer biscuits, as opposed to fluffy biscuits, and always homemade with buttermilk, and no sugar added. The sugar came into play later when topped with honey & jam......ahh.....memories......

    So if you are doing a truly primal biscuit....I don't think you can compare to our "preprimal" biscuits. Sorry, just being honest. You could try a gluten-free version for a better approximation, but I wouldn't make a habit of them (for primal reasons ).

    However, I have found that I like this variation of the muffins mentioned above, and they could sorta pass for a biscuit with some imagination:
    1/4 cup coconut flour
    1/4-ish cup (I like to add a little more) almond meal flour
    1/2 cup melted coconut oil OR butter (I would use butter here if trying to approximate a biscuit)
    1/2 cup fine dehydrated coconut (unsweetened)
    1 T or so of raw honey (or omit)
    1 t soda
    A splash of hot water (makes recipie go further, muffins are lighter), maybe omit for biscuit-like muffins (if also omitting honey I would add more than a splash of water).
    3 eggs

    Mix all together, bake in greased muffin tin for about 17 minutes (for my high altitude, maybe longer for you) @ 350'. There will be extra muffin cups not used, so remember to fill each empty cup with about 1 T of water when putting into oven to make sure all muffins bake evenly.

    this is the recipe I use, it's easy and doesn't require separating eggs, wasting yolks or baking in muffin cups. I have since found that it's not necessary to freeze the flour or to mix the eggs in lightly since there's no gluten to toughen the biscuits.
    I also started making the almond flour myself since the price has gone up to $12/lb

    I do!! they are so easy and so yummy!!... these literally taste like real biscuits with a hint of coconut and the coconut oil gives them a buttery taste to them.

    I found this recipe off of some site:


    Dry ingredients:

    1 cup coconut flour

    1 tsp baking soda


    Liquid ingredients:

    4 eggs

    1 tbsp coconut oil

    1 cup coconut milk

    OPTIONAL: sweetener of choice (1 mashed overripe banana/stevia/honey/etc.)- I personally make them with no sweetener and they are DELICIOUS.

    1 tsp vanilla extract

    coconut oil to grease muffin pan

    Directions – Preheat the oven to 350. Combine all of the dry ingredients in one bowl and mix. Combine all of the wet ingredients in another bowl and mix. If possible, use room temp milk so that the coconut oil doesn’t harden when you combine them.) Pour the wet over the dry and combine. . Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.

    Hm, must try. Biscuits and gravy and an Awful Awful replacement are on my "primal" list.
