Happy Sunday Readers –
As I prep for a bit of a June Blog Fast – (one more post coming after this one)
I have to share this FLOURS and FLOWERS post
First, the flours.
Cassava-root flour mixed equally with finely-ground almond flour makes for some tasty bread items.
Easy Biscuit Recipe INGREDIENTS
3/4 cup of Cassava-root Flour
3/4 cup of finely-ground almond flour (make sure there is nothing else added to the almond flour – they sometimes sneak stuff in)
1 very even teaspoon of fresh baking soda (helps them rise and adds some alkalizing)
1 heaping teaspoon of cocoa (balances the baking soda and adds flavor, color, etc.)
1 teaspoon (or more) of unrefined, finely ground sea salt.
2 large eggs (or 3 if the eggs are small)
3/4 to 1 cup of oil/fat (We used 1/4 c. of ghee, 1/4 c. of unrefined coconut oil, and 1/2 stick of butter – all softened)
Optional – parsley flakes or aged cheese to sprinkle on top.
Optional for the flat bread – chia seeds, raw pumpk seeds, and raw almonds (almonds should be blanched first in hot water – pour hot water over the almonds and let them sit for five minutes)
Easy Biscuit Recipe DIRECTIONS
Mix the dry ingredients in separate bowl. Mix well.
Mix the wet ingredients together – the eggs with the oils/ fats
Mix the dry and wet items together
Might need to adjust the amount of oil – but the dough should be a little sticky. Experiment to see what you like as well
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place spoonfuls of dough onto parchment paper and make sure they have a little room to spread. We prefer different sizes – but if you want them uniform – use an ice cream scooper to scoop the dough
Optional – Sprinkle with parsley – or oregano, salt, aged cheese, etc.
Bake for ten minutes and check to see if they are done. Smaller biscuits might need to removed while larger ones go back in for a few minutes.
It feels so good to have a bread-like item to dip into bone broth and soups.
These biscuits are also great as a snack – plain, or with a huge pat of real butter.
The Cassava and almond flours also make a tasty flat bread. Same ingredients as above – just add in some nuts and grated aged-cheddar cheese to the top.
Instead of dropping spoonfuls, press the dough into a log – and then baked it for around 10 minutes. Take it out when it is almost done – slice it (like slicing biscotti) – and then bake it again for a few more minutes (ovens vary so adjust baking times as needed).
Now for the FLOWERS
