Biscuits & Spiced Pear Purée
Did you know that biscuits could be healthy? And they could still taste amazing? Slather one of these with this puree, top with Roasted Maple shelled flax, and your mouth will thank you.
Biscuits (Makes 6)
- 4 egg whites
- 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
- 2 Tbsp coconut flour
- 0.5 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp lard
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Cut in lard with a fork until the mixture is crumbly. Or, if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, just dig in and mix it with your hands until it crumbles. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. In a medium bowl whisk egg whites until they are frothy – very frothy! Add the egg whites into the chilled mixture until well combined. Scoop about 1/4 cup of dough onto the baking sheet - smooth the top of each to form biscuits. Here’s a great trick - use an ice cream scoop to scoop your dough onto the baking sheet, then gently flatten the top of each biscuit. You’ll get a perfect biscuit shape every time! Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Serve warm with Spiced Pear Purée, topped with Omega Crunch Roasted Maple Shelled Flax. Refrigerate leftovers in an air tight container.
