Bacon, Sundried Tomato, and Chive Biscuits

Paleo Biscuits

This is the first recipe I have tried making from Heather at Multiply Delicious. She always has tasty sounding recipes, but this is my first time following one of hers. These are really great as a substitute for biscuits. Would be bangin’ under some eggs benedict, oolaalaa.

Makes: 6 large biscuits or 12 smaller biscuits.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Bake time: 12-15 minutes*

Bacon, Sundried Tomato and Chive Biscuits

  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1/4 cup bacon grease (or coconut oil melted)
  • 2 strips of nitrate-free bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 sundried tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh chives, finely diced

Instructions (taken directly from website):

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
2. In a large bowl whisk together almond flour, baking soda, and sea salt. Stir in whisked eggs and bacon grease (or coconut oil) mixing to combine. Add crumbled bacon, diced sundried tomatoes, and chives stirring until well incorporated. The dough should form into a ball.
3. On a flat clean surface place a piece of parchment paper. Place ball of dough on top of parchment paper and using hands flatten dough to an even circle. Flatten dough to the desired thickness you would like your biscuits. I preferred to keep mine thicker.
4. Using a biscuit cutter (between 1β€³-2β€³ in size), cut the biscuits out of the dough. You can use remaining dough to flatten again in order to cut out additional biscuits. Place biscuits onto prepared baking sheet.
5. Bake biscuits 12-15 minutes or until golden. Best if enjoyed still warm from the oven.
6. Biscuits can be stored in an airtight container in a cool dry place for about 2 to 3 days (if they last that long).

*Mine took 23 minutes for some reason.

I would definitely make these again! However, next time I would make biscuits with just chives and bacon, and a separate batch with just chives and sundried tomatoes. I felt like the tomato and bacon were fighting a bit. But man oh man, perfect biscuit texture.
