All you need to make these grain-free biscuits are 5 ingredients, a single bowl, and 25 minutes! They’re paleo, SCD, and vegan, and are delicious both savory, and sweet!
Biscuits are such a comfort food. One of my favorite ways to start the day is with a warm, fluffy biscuit topped with jam and honey. They’re just so delicious!
Although I usually opt for sweet, these are also delicious with homemade gravy, or topped with cashew cheese, veggies, and turkey bacon for a more savory option.
5 INGREDIENT BISCUITS
Like I mentioned above, these biscuits require only 5 ingredients (counting the water), and are so simple.
CASHEW FLOUR: I hate to say it, but I’ve just never been able to get behind almond flour. It’s just such a strong and distinct flavor for me, and alongside the fact that I don’t particularly love almonds, it’s never been my cup of tea. Cashew flour, however, has an incredibly mild, creamy flavor, and is the perfect substitute for almond flour! I’ve switched all my nut-based flour recipes to using cashew flour, and it’s been a game changer for me!
COCONUT FLOUR: Coconut flour, although difficult to work with as the main flour in most recipes, is the perfect compliment to a main flour. In this case, cashew flour! Although there’s only a tiny amount of coconut flour in this recipe, it’s the perfect companion for the rest of the ingredients.
BAKING SODA: A component of what makes these biscuits soft and fluffy when warm. Baking soda helps to make these biscuits rise!
AVOCADO OIL: Avocado oil has a very high smoke point (around 520°F), and rich in healthy fats, and benefits.
WATER: Although you’re welcome to use a plant-based milk in it’s place, I’ve never noticed a difference when comparing the two in this recipe.
Now, on to the fun stuff. If you’re ready to learn how to make these super easy, 5 ingredient biscuits, let’s get into the recipe!Print
- Preheat the oven to 350F, and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Combine all ingredients into a bowl, and mix until well combined (can use your hands, or a mixer).
- Either roll, or hand shape biscuits (*see notes) into desired size, and place on parchment covered baking sheet.
- Place in the oven for around 15 minutes, or until just beginning to turn golden (it’s easy to over cook these, so it’s better to remove early than too late to maintain a soft, fluffy texture).
- Remove from the oven, top as desired, and enjoy!
For flatter biscuits (like the ones featured in the back of the photo), roll out your dough, then cut with a biscuit cutter. For more natural, dome shaped biscuits (like the featured biscuit in the picture), simply hand shape your biscuits into a thick (2 inches or so) dome shape.
