Almond flour and honey drop biscuits

Almond Flour and Honey Drop Biscuits

These almond flour and honey drop biscuits are light and pleasing—and gluten-free. They might even win out over conventional flour biscuits! They’d be great as an added protein boost alongside a hearty, healthy main-dish soup such as peppery green pea-arugula soup.

  1. I don’t know what happened, but I couldn’t get the batter to go beyond sticky batter, I added another 1/2 c of almond meal and another teaspoon of baking soda but still too runny, so I tried baking them and they looked like sort of fluffy cookies – might have tasted ok on their own as a cookie?? But I had already made the beef gravy to go on top- yuck! Had to eat it anyway… 🙁

      Victoria I am so sorry you had an unpleasant experience! It’s such a bummer to have to eat food that doesn’t turn out quite right. I’ve made these biscuits several times and they’ve worked well, using both Bob’s Red Mill almond meal/flour and Honeyville almond flour. Thanks for coming to my blog and for trying the recipe anyway.

      I’m sorry for you, that they didn’t turn out ;-/ I follow the recipe, sometimes make mini muffins instead of drop biscuits. They’ve always been a crowd pleaser, me pleaser and I make them often..

    Still making these biscuits, tonight I put a twist sounds odd, but I added a little less than a TBSP of peanut butter. They turned out awesome..

    The first biscuits I tried to make gluten free.. Awesome, didn’t tell my husband till he asked ” Are these horrible for me” after downing three..I made them for the 2012 Super bowl party with a giant pot of chili. They went so fast I had to make a third batch.. Thank you for sharing great recipe and easy to follow. I used two cups almond flour and half a cup oat flour still turned out awesome….

    All I can say is awesome biscuits.. I just starting cutting out white and wheat flour, so I didn’t tell my husband these were made with almond flour. By the time I set them on table and turned to retrieve dinner almost 3 were gone… Big hit in our house, in fact I’m making them for 15 people, to go alongside with chili for the Super Bowl party!!!!!!!

    Yummy! I love biscuits so much and I’m always looking for new ways to try making them. I haven’t quite gotten on the almond flour for everything wagon, but these are convincing me that I need to!
