What is it about paleo biscuits slathered in butter and homemade jelly that make my knees go weak.
This recipe was totally an accident. I simply didn’t have enough flour to make my go to recipe and so I just hodge podged together and mama, it came out smoking good. Crusty on the outside and soft in the middle, even Mr. Bejelly thought it was just liked the biscuits he grew up eating.
You might be looking at this and wondering why the biscuits are yellow. The pastured egg yolks truly shined through in this one gave it a beautiful golden glow.
I love happy accidents like this and it’s one of my favorite things about Paleo baking. It’s scientific and art and mothering all in one and why I love to bake. It’s crazy that I never was a baker before I went Paleo but once I gave up grains, I seriously missed the comfort of bread, especially gluten-free sourdough bread. .

- 2 cups Superfine Blanched Almond Flour
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon palm shortening, or butter
- 2 large eggs
- Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a medium mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon.
- Add in the butter and eggs and mix with a spoon until combined.
- Let the batter sit for 1 minute to let the coconut flour thicken.
- The batter will be slightly wet but you should be able to grab a piece and shape it into a 1 to 2" ball.
- Drop the biscuit onto the parchment paper and place in the oven and let bake for 12 to 15 minutes.

I love your biscuits!! Just now noticing how cute your recipe card is 🙂
Aw, thanks Stacey!!!
Do you melt the butter or shortening when adding it to the dry ingredients with the eggs?
Nope, just make sure it’s room temperature. I’ll update the recipe 🙂
I was just thinking about biscuits the other day… These look so good and fluffy!
I hope you enjoy them Caitlin!
I cant wait to make these! How do you store them? Thanks!
I just put them in a container in the fridge and let them warm up to room temperature when I want to eat them
Hello, could I add nutritional yeast to this recipe to make it cheesy? Also, Whenever I make Almond flour bread I can’t toast it because it makes it changes the taste and doesn’t toast the whole way through, just burns the edges. Any ideas?
Thanks so much
