I just discovered a good basic biscuit recipe in a Prevention publication. I modified it -- I added salt, and I changed the 4 egg whites to 2 whole eggs. This is really good so I thought I'd share:
Basic Biscuits (makes 8)
1 cup almond flour
1 cup ground golden flax seed
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter
Heat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, ground flax seed, baking powder, and salt. Cut in or rub in the butter until evenly distributed.
In a separate bowl beat the eggs until very foamy and lighter colored. Stir the beaten eggs gently into the rest of the ingredient. Spoon into 8 rounds on prepared pan. Flatten to 3/4" thickness and bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until golden.
For strawberry shortcake I added a half teaspoon of vanilla and 1 tablespoon sugar (I know, I know -- I should have used another sweetener). This was wonderful with sliced strawberries and whipped cream flavored with a dash of maple syrup and a dash of vanilla.
I think these biscuits would also be good with some strongly flavored grated cheese added in with the dry ingredients.
