Gluten Free Drop Biscuits - 1 Points+/Biscuit

So I am trying out this gluten free thing because I know I need to.  I don't have a diagnosis requiring it, I just know based on what my body is telling me that I will feel better if I remove (or at the very least significantly reduce) gluten in my diet.

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
.5tsp Salt
1T cold, unsalted butter
3T unsweetened applesauce
fat free milk (if needed)

Directions:
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! :)
