Biscuits and bacon….

I don’t know if it was being at my grandpa’s house out in the country last week — a place of fond memories where my grandma use to make her homemade biscuits and we’d eat at least 4 with honey (my mouth is watering!)– or the fact that my fridge was empty (I usually have so much food in there that I’ve pre-made for breakfast and lunches) but I knew I wanted something warm and yummy for breakfast. Since I didn’t really feel like bison, Sloppy Joe’s, and broccoli this particular morning, I knew I had to make something good or this could turn out to be a cheat day, and what’s better than some warm buttery biscuits!

So after doing a little research I found for some paleo biscuits that said that they were very similar texture to old fashion biscuits.  Awesome. And they were. Look, it was like real white flour, Crisco dough!

And we cooked them and broke them open and there were just as dense as real biscuits! Only problem was, they were AWFUL!!!  So, of course I had to try again and thank goodness, with my own concoction, I think I got it right!


They were a little less dense and reminded me a little of cornbread but regardless they were still really delicious!! My mouth is watering again.  Gosh, I must be hungry!

Here’s how to make them:

  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup almond meal (use almond flour if you have it)
  • 4 tbsp Butter, melted
  • 4 eggs or 3/4 cup egg whites
  • 1-2 tbsp honey (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt of salt
  • dash of cinnamon (optional)
And I actually used a little bacon grease since I had just made bacon, maybe about 1 tsp worth.  I think they would be really good with just almond flour too but if you do that then only use 2 eggs.
Okay, here is what you need to do:
1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2.  Put all ingredients into medium sized bowl and mix well with a hand blender or by hand until smooth.
3.  Using your hands, carefully form into nine small balls and mash each one down with a spoon to make it about 1/2 inch thick.  Note that these will not be dough like from the first picture but more like a cake batter consistency.
4.  Bake for 10-12 minutes until just starting to brown.  Allow to cool and enjoy!
I highly making some nitrate free bacon (and eggs) to go with these wonderful little things.  It’s taken us years to figure out the best way to make bacon super crispy. We use to fry it or cook it in the microwave, but nothing beats just cooking it in the oven. All you need to do to make perfect bacon is lay down some foil on a cookie sheet. Place your bacon slices on it and cook on 375 for 10 minutes.  Then, flip it and cook it for another 10 minutes.  This no fail way makes any bacon amazingly crispy (and easy to clean up).

These biscuits were really good, and especially with some bacon! There’s just something about a bacon and egg biscuit.  Mmmmm….

This really hit the spot and saved me from really cheating!  I hope you guys like them as much as we did!
