These were one of the most spontaneous recipes I have whipped up yet.

Grain-free BISCUITS that just so happen to have broccoli in them and I may or may not have sprinkled some organic cheddar on top for extra something.

These biscuits are not only one of the cutest recipes ever, but they are absolutely perfect with your morning eggs, smeared with some butter or cashew cream cheese. They are also perfect to feed to your kids (Ezra loves them) and are a staple food prep recipe since you can also freeze them.

I have a classic biscuit recipe in Just the Good Stuff that I cannot wait for you guys to try. But I am also excited to have one over here on the blog.

I love that these biscuits are also nut-free, paleo (if you skip cheese) and they sneak in veggies! I use broccoli usually but you can really add anything. Some cooked carrots, peas, anything you have on hand. Usually there is a bag of frozen organic broccoli in my freezer so I tend to use that most often. You can also add in some onion for extra flavor too.

What you need to make these nut-free and grain-free coconut flour biscuits:

  1. Pasture-raised eggs. I don’t recommend using flax eggs here but if you do use it and have success, let me know!
  2. Melted butter, ghee or coconut oil. Any of these will work. I switch things up each time I make them. I noticed if I use oil, I sometimes need a little extra flour (only add 1 tablespoons at a time for extra).
  3. Coconut flour. I haven’t tested another flour here. Almond wouldn’t work well. I share a few of my other favorite recipes with coconut flour in this blog post.
  4. Veggies. Get creative! Any veggies will work. We love using broccoli.
  5. Optional: CHEESE. Totally don’t have to use it but I love adding organic cheddar or a non-dairy one

  1. These were amazing!! I made them today and have already eaten 2. Recipe is simple and frankly foolproof. Highly recommend!

  2. These were great! I added in cooked spicy sausage & leftover roasted red/yellow peppers and roasted sweet potatoes. I totally serve these to gluten eating people and I don’t think they’d ever know they were GF!
