That being said, I am sucker for all thing bread, cake, cookie and biscuit so I know I will be playing around with recipes a lot in the next few months. Yesterday Little A asked for biscuits and I was struggling to come up with something. I searched my trusty friends Pinterest and Google and found a lot of choices, but most had way too much fat. I stumbled on this recipe on Whole Lifestyle Nutrition (a site I think I will be frequenting a lot in the coming months) and it seemed easy enough. The problem was I was still not wanting quite so much fat when I knew I would be eating at least 2 (or 3) of these. After a few episodes of trial and error, I knew I got it right when Little A was sneaking back into the kitchen to grab more when I cut him off after 4!
Oat Flour Drop Biscuits (1 WW Points+/biscuit)Ingredients:
1c Oat Flour (I just ground GF oats in my coffee grinder)
2tsp GF Baking Powder
1T cold, unsalted butter
3T unsweetened applesauce
fat free milk (if needed)
1. Preheat oven to 425.
2. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl with a fork.
3. Cut butter into small cubes. Using a fork or pastry mixer, incorporate cold butter into dry mix. (This will create a very crumbly mixture.)
4. Add applesauce and mix thoroughly. This will create a doughy mixture but it will not be liquidy, it actually looks a bit like oatmeal cookie dough.
*Optional: If your dough is not sticking together, add milk 1T at a time until a sticky dough forms*
5. Grease a baking sheet with coconut oil. Using a tablespoon, drop dough onto baking sheet.(~10 biscuits)
6. Bake at 425 for 8-10 minutes or until tops begin to brown.
*Note: because there is very little fat in this recipe the biscuits will not spread much, so if you want a flatter biscuit make sure to flatten them with the back of a spoon a bit before baking*
You can top these will butter, jam, honey, peanut butter, nutella, the possibilities are endless. To be honest though, they are so good I eat them plain!
Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
Happy Eating! :)
