Grain & Gluten Free Stuffing Recipe

Typically my brother and his wife have us over for Thanksgiving Day. We all bring an item to share to lessen the load on the host.  This year I was asked to bring stuffing.  I don’t think they remember that I have never liked stuffing.  Even as a kid I wouldn’t touch the stuff.  So I found it ironic that I was gonna be the one making stuffing this year, especially since we are a gluten free household.
So of course I was up for the challenge to make a gluten free stuffing that the normal stuffing lovers will eat.  Cross your fingers for me that they love it.

Grain Free, Paleo Biscuits

recipe modified slightly from DeliciouslyOrganic.net
Makes 12 – 3 inch biscuits

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour fine, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons grain-free baking powder
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut into tablespoonsIMG_5330
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk, full fat
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and adjust rack to middle position.
  2. Place almond flour, coconut flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse 2-3 times to combine.
  3. Add butter and pulse, 8-10 times until mixture looks like wet sand with pea-size clumps of butter.
  4. Pour mixture into a mixing bowl and stir in the milk and water.
  5. The mixture should be tacky, but not loose or runny. If it’s too loose, stir in a tablespoon more of almond flour.
  6. Using a 2-inch cookie scoop, scoop dough and place each dough mound on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Using your fingers, press gently on the tops of the dough mounds to flatten them just a little. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown on the edges.

To get these ready for the dressing:

Cool biscuits, cut each in half lengthwise and leave out on the counter overnight. (or toast in a 300 degree F oven for 15 minutes until dried out).
These biscuits are fun to eat with a little butter on top and plain.
