Gluten-Free, Grain-Free Biscuits {Paleo}

These biscuits are my attempt to find a tasty warm "bread" for my hubby to enjoy with all the soups and stews I make.  These are gluten-free and grain-free, which is what he prefers, so they are more dense like a biscuit. You can detect a hint of coconut from the coconut flour but we are used to it and like it now.  If you are looking to try a grain-free option or perhaps you are entertaining for someone who avoids grain, gluten and dairy, this is one to try.  You can double the recipe to make about 1 dozen and you can still fit them all on one baking sheet because they do not rise during baking.  Enjoy!

Recipe: (makes 6-8 biscuits)
3/4 cup Coconut Flour
3/4 cup Tapioca Starch (Flour)
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup Avocado Oil

1. Preheat oven to 350'F.  In a mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients; coconut flour, tapioca starch and salt
2. In a separate bowl combine wet ingredients. Whisk the egg and add in the water and oil.

3. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and gently stir until combined.  If too dry, add 1 more tablespoon of water.

4. Scoop about an ice cream scoop size amount of dough into your hand and gently roll into a ball.

5. Place biscuits on a Silpat-lined baking sheet and bake at 350'F for 33-35 minutes or until biscuits are a deep golden all over. {cooking times will vary, you are looking for a deep golden color.  When doubling the recipe I typically add 2-4 minutes to the cook time}

6. Enjoy plain or with a drizzle of honey!
