Wheat Belly Biscuit Recipe (Gluten Free)
1 cup almond flour/meal
1 cup ground golden flaxseeds
4 teaspoons baking powder
4 tablespoons cold butter (cut into cubes)
4 egg whites
Make them cheddar biscuits by adding 1/2 teaspoon onion powder and 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (I confess I lightly oiled my baking sheet and went with it!)
In a bowl, mix together the almond meal/flour, flaxseeds, baking powder, and onion powder, cut in the butter until combined. Stir in the Cheddar.
In a small bowl, beat the egg whites with a hand mixer until soft peaks from. Gently fold the egg whites into the dry ingredients until combined.
Spoon the dough into rounds on the baking sheet (mad 12 for me) flatten to approximately 3/4" thickness.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown
