Taken from the “Wheat Belly Cookbook” by Dr. William 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 from the oven with a little organic butter. Here’s the recipe:
Paleo Grain-Free Biscuits
1 cup almond meal/flour
1 cup flax meal

Finding grain-free alternatives to favorites like biscuits, breads and bakery isn’t easy, but these almond flour and flax seed based treasures are a tasty replacement that satisfies. I always look for the easy button on recipes, and these yummy biscuits only take 25 minutes start to finish. That makes them easy enough for a Sunday brunch – and they’re tasty enough for Thanksgiving dinner, too!
