Baking The Day Away Again In Primal Town


Does that sweet face you see care that it's February?
Naw! He has been the happiest dog in the world this winter.
Usually this time of year we are huddled in our snuggies watching long movies, while the freezing winds howl outside.
This year has been crazy! But who can complain?
That said, it was ticking me off that I had baking to do yesterday, when all I wanted to do was to be outside.
I have a biscuit recipe that we can not live without. I make it at least every other day.
We use these biscuits in so many different ways and in all different shapes.
They have become one more low carb-primal staple we can not do without.
If I make them flat we use them as buns for regular sandwiches, breakfast sandwiches, I can lay them in a bowl and then put pulled pork over them, you can spread primal tuna salad on them, and the list goes on.
If I make them small and round they are the perfect accompaniment to stew, soup, or just as a dinner roll.
The coconut flour has a pleasant taste and is very fibrous, so you know it is doing wonders for your insides.
I usually make a double batch of sandwich bun types and then a double batch of small rounds.
I decided to give myself a break and not be chained to the stove all day, by splitting up the batches.
After making the flat breads, Jack and I headed to our favorite Sharon Woods and took a different path than usual.
Wow...nature is beautiful even in the browns of winter...

Sharon Woods

After our stint at Sharon Woods, I made the next batches of rolls and we headed out for a different park to explore.
Glenwood Gardens
We went to Glenwood Gardens.
The park has amazing trails that give the feeling of being a hundred miles away from civilization. Even though the landscape was completely brown, it was still a wonder to see and enjoy in these unusually warm days.


Jack was one happy sweetie after his two long walks.
I will share my Primal Bread recipe with you and maybe make your day too!


Primal Bread:

1/4 cup grass fed butter or coconut oil (melted)
1/3 cup coconut flour
4 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (you can use any kind you like)
I use a bunch of other spices including dill and rosemary, and toss those in.

Primal Biscuit Batter
Blend together eggs, coconut oil or butter, salt, and spices.
Combine coconut flour with baking powder and whisk into batter until there are no lumps.
Fold in cheese.

Before baking
For this batch I pressed them out flat to make the buns.


perfect!

I baked them in a 350 degree oven for 12 to 14 minutes.
I try not to over bake them so they are still moist and hold together for sandwich making.

I hope you try these biscuits and find a new healthy staple for your home too!

  5. I get my coconut flour from Tropical Traditions, they are an online company that we have researched and trust very much. If you click the link on my page they give you a free gift when you order!
    I have tried other brands and Tropical Traditions has always been the best. We also buy the gold label coconut oil they sell, it is what I use as a face and body moisterizer, I use it as a deep hair conditioner, we use it to non stick our baking dishes, and I have at least 4 to 6 tablespoons of it a day in my coffee and food.
    Thank you so much for reading!

    1. That all depends on how large or small you want them. If I am making the flat rounds I get 6-8, if I am making the smaller dinner rolls I get 10-12.
      Now that it is 2 years later from this post, I can say that we don't need a bread like thing with dinner as much anymore.
      These are still great, and I hope you enjoy them!
