Grain Free Dairy Free Almond Flour Chia Biscuits

I bought some great looking fruit preserves on sale the other day and I really wanted to try them, but I didn't have anything to spread them onto!  So, I made these biscuits!  They were really good by themselves, but with the sweet topping, they were AMAZING!  Yum!  With the strawberry on top, it tasted like a dessert - with no sugar at all!  Oh, and they smelled fantastic while they were baking - like fresh bread!

I found the biscuit recipe from Elana Amsterdam's, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook.  I made a few changes and I'll share those with you:


2 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
2 large organic pastured eggs
3 tsp apple cider vinegar
3 tsp chia seeds ground and mixed with 1/4 cup water (forms a gel)
2 tsp water if needed

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (I use bleach free)
  • Grind the chia seeds (I use a coffe/nut grinder) and then mix together with 1/4 cup water in a medium bowl.  Let sit to form a gel while you do the next step.
  • In a larger bowl, mix together the almond flour, sea salt and baking soda.
  • Whisk together the eggs, melted coconut oil, and apple cider vinegar.
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the dry in the large bowl until combined.  If there isn't enough moisture to thoroughly combine, add a little bit of water.
  • Place the batter in small scoops on the parchment paper.  You can reshape with your hands if you wish.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes until they are golden.
  • Let them cool briefly and then enjoy!
You can slice them carefully in half and eat with jelly or add ghee or any other topping you like!  Or just eat them plain.  You could substitute ghee for the coconut oil.  The coconut oil adds a bit of sweetness that I like!  Delicious!
