This was a delicious accident. I was looking for a gluten free biscuit, more of something like the kind you might have with a hot bowl of soup or the kind that you might make an egg sandwich with. I suppose I could experiment next time with more of a rising agent and larger dollops on the baking sheet, or blanched almond flour instead of almond meal, but I am pleasantly surprised by the mishap and I quickly whipped up a homemade jam of sorts to top these buttery, almost scone like delights. They go so perfectly together with a tall glass of lemon and fruit infused water. They do with a cup of hot tea as well !
The recipe is super simple with only 4 ingredients and simple preparation. I dropped them by packed tablespoons onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet not too close together.
I love that it is gluten free and can be dairy free by using coconut oil instead of butter or ghee. It’s low carb with no added refined sugars and a good source of protein from almonds and eggs.
I have found that my body responds better to not having gluten in my diet. I am not ceiliac but simply find that my fatigue and inflammation increases if I add in gluten. I’m sure this recipe is paleo or keto or something but I’m not up on all the rules of those diets so double check if that’s your goal. I love that it is made from real food, real ingredients that I can feel good about eating.
I made a batch of these and kept them in an airtight container in the fridge for a week. They were so nice to have on hand for healthy snacks on the go or in between meals.
The “Jam” took only a few minutes as well. And the ingredients are so simple and pure, I consume this with confidence knowing there are zero added chemicals or crazy additives. I used frozen organic berries I had in my freezer, a little raw honey and a couple drops of Lemon Vitality essential oi. The lemon oil really accentuated the berries and honey so well and took this jam to a whole nother level of deliciousness. With summer arriving and fresh berry picking on the horizon, I imagine lots of berry jam over everything for months to come.
