One of my downfalls when the holiday season rolls around, is a hot buttered biscuit. Who doesn't love a warm biscuit out of the oven to go along with their Thanksgiving meal?? Or on Christmas morning with some raspberry jam... MMM!
Well I am not eating white or wheat flours these days... and not only do I feel energized but I lost ALL of my last 15 pounds of baby weight. Here is a recipe I altered, and perfected- using almond flour. You can buy blanched almond flour on amazon. It's guiltless, and GOOD for you.. :)
6 egg whites
1 cup blanched almond flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons organic butter, chilled
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix almond flour, baking powder and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Cut in cold butter with a fork until the mixture is crumbly. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
In a medium bowl whisk egg whites until they are very frothy. Fold the egg whites into the chilled flour mixture until well combined. Scoop about 1/4 cup of dough onto the baking sheet and smooth the top to form each biscuits, an ice cream scoop works well in this step. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown!
Serve warm with butter, jam, and/or honey :)
