Quinoa Biscuits

This is one of the easier biscuit recipes that don’t require a blending of various flours. They are pretty healthy and made using coconut oil.

Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup toasted quinoa flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Orange or vanilla essence (or rose or lemon or whichever you choose)
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds

Method:

  • Preheat the oven at about 350 degrees F.
  • Add the quinoa flour, baking soda and baking powder in a large bowl and sift.
  • In another bowl, mix together the sugar and coconut oil – you may need to use an electric beater for this. Once
  • the mixture is smooth, add in the egg and beat until creamy. This should take another 2-3 minutes or so.
  • Finally, add the orange or vanilla flavouring.
  • Then very carefully, fold in the dry ingredients into the wet, until everything is perfectly combined.
  • Add the nuts to this mixture. If you like, you can put in chocolate chips or another type of nut – it is all up to
  • you.
  • Onto a baking sheet, plop little scoops of the batter and flatten the top slightly. They will expand once they cook
  • so make sure to leave lots of space between each scoop.
  • Bake them for about 10 minutes or until the edges become a little hard – they maybe a little underdone, but
  • turn off the oven anyway. Let the cookies cool and harden for a few minutes, then transfer them gently to a wire
  • rack where they will soon be ready to eat.
