I love love love pecan meal. And lots of other nut meals too. But this recipe is an excellent way to use pecan meal and still have a nice flaky-ish texture. I’ve been struggling with a lot of my gluten free baking lately because its so low in nutrients (I’ve used a lot of the feather weight flours.. not as good nutrition wise.) This was my first attempt to really incorporate some more nutrient rich ingredients. Its a small step, but I hope it’ll give me courage to try more. It certainly helps that they were yummy!!!!
Nutty and Nutritious Biscuits
1/2 cup pecan meal
1/2 cup flax meal
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup corn oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup soymilk
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl until dough can be formed in your hands. Spray a baking pan or lay down a piece of parchment paper. Roll the dough in your hands to make 2 inch balls. Place them on the pan and press them slightly so they widen and are about 1/2 inch thick.
Bake for approximately 15 minutes at 400.
I’ve been eating them with a bowl of soup, which is a perfect combination I think! They are EXCELLENT with a little drop of honey. The only negative thing about them is that they make me crave butter. They would be so yummy with butter!
