I looked all over at different coconut flour biscuit recipes and combined the best parts of each into the below. My goal was for a coconut-flour biscuit that didn’t taste like eggs, as most coconut-flour things tend to do. I love eggs and their nutritional profile, but if I can’t eat something that tastes close enough like its wheat-based evil cousin I’ll eventually go off track.
I have succeeded. These end up pretty close in texture to cheddar bay biscuits from red lobster, and they taste more bacon-coconut than eggy.
1/4 cup coconut oil (unrefined, smells sweet)
1 cup bacon, diced, raw (I froze mine first then cut it up)
1/2 cup diced onion (I buy it frozen in bags)
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup shredded cheese (I used provolone/mozz blend, cheddar would be good)
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet or something with parchment paper.
Fry bacon in skillet until lightly browned. Add onions, cook until they start to get clear and the bacon is not burnt. Remove from heat, scoop mixture into a bowl and throw into freezer (or let it sit out until it won’t cook eggs). Drain the drippings into a mug. I had about 1.5 tbsp of drippings.
Add the coconut oil to the mug and mix it thoroughly. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs together. Add the oil to the eggs, and mix it together. It might be lumpy if your oil is still solid, that’s fine.
Whisk together the coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the cheese and mix it lightly until it’s coated.
Once your bacon/onion mixture is only slightly warm or less, add it to the bowl of eggs/oil and mix it thoroughly. Then, add this to the dry ingredients. Mix it together with a spoon until wet and cheese is somewhat blended. Drop spoonfulls onto the parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until tops are brown.
Mine made 8 small-ish biscuits. They are best when warm, and feel slightly dry when not. Spreading with coconut oil fixes that. Next time, I’ll probably add some minced garlic and cumin. These go well at both breakfast (with scrambled eggs) and dinner (roast beef and broccoli).
