Grain-Free Biscuits for Paleo & Gluten-Free Diets

Taken from The Wheat Belly Cookbook by Dr. Wiiliam Davis, anyone following a paleo or gluten-free diet will appreciate these fluffy, nutty grain-free biscuits! Think “buttermilk” – they are perfect for dipping into sunny side up eggs, spreading with jam, or slathering with sausage gravy. Our favorite way to eat them¬† is warm form the oven with a little organic butter. Here’s the recipe:
