Coconut Flour Cheese Biscuits


I don't own THE definitive book for coconut lovers, Cooking with Coconut Flour by Dr. Bruce Fife. But I should, I really should, because I do appreciate my coconut flour. I think my online friend Rachel shares my sentiments, because she posted this great recipe of her own, also based on Dr. Fife's book. Rachel's blog, Until the Thin Lady Sings, featured these great cheese biscuits today. If you believe in coincidences, this is a good one, because my oldest son has been talking about the cheddar biscuits at a certain seafood place, and my mom has a coupon for that same place. I saw this recipe, and just knew it would be tasty. Ok, so Rachel's photo helped too.

To make my onion version, I left out the spices, and added instead 2 tablespoons of dehydrated onions and half a teaspoon of onion powder. I also accidentally added a half a teaspoon of baking powder rather than a fourth. Admittedly, I was running back and forth from my computer to the kitchen trying to remember the ingredient list.

I think this could be a pretty versatile recipe, given the flavor combos we could come up with. You can play with herbs and spices, different flavored fats, and other cheeses. Thanks Rachel for the starting point recipe. The cheese really does make a difference here. I had a recipe for an almond meal cheese bread, but I like this one too!

Really wish I could say the same about the chicken dish I tried tonight. Normally, I like anything with balsamic vinegar, but this just didn't do it for us. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.
