Flavor of the Week {Paleo Biscuits & Gravy}

Last week I shared a photo last week on Instagram that got a lot of people excited.

Biscuits and gravy on the Paleo diet? Yep, it's true!

Here's how I did it:

Paleo Biscuits:
  • 6 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1//2 tablespoons cold ghee

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and salt together in a large mixing bowl.  Cut in cold ghee with a pastry blender (or a fork will do) until the mixture is crumbly.  Place the bowl in the refrigerator.  In a medium bowl whisk egg whites until they are very frothy (you want all froth and no runny egg left).  Remove the bowl from the fridge and fold the egg whites into the chilled flour mixture until well combined.  Scoop about 1/4 cup of dough onto the baking sheet and form into the shape of biscuits.  Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.  Serve warm or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
 Now, the biscuits were good (they made great bacon & egg sandwiches), but the real winner of this post was the sausage gravy!

Simple Sausage Gravy:

  • 1lb of your favorite sausage
  • 2 tsp arrow root flour (this is a corn starch like substitute)
  • 1 tsp coconut flour
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • salt & pepper to taste ( I like lots of pepper in my sausage gravy)

In a skillet, brown the sausage then sprinkle on the arrow root flour and coconut flour and mix.  Add the coconut milk, salt & pepper and stir to combine.  Cook over medium-low heat for 5-10 minutes until the sauce becomes thick.

This is by far our new favorite paleo recipe(s)!  Enjoy!

Oh those look good. Is there a substitute for ghee? Or how do I get some of that here in Asia? :P
