I’m sharing a recipe for 4-ingredient coconut flour biscuits with you today! Just as a preface, I’ve had one too many cups of coffee today, so excuse my silly mood. In addition to feeling giddy (um, jittery?), I’m also in the mood to make lists. So you’ll see a few of those in today’s post. Okay. Read on, friends!

These 4-ingredient coconut flour biscuits are for you if:

  • you’re gluten-free and/or have a nut allergy
  • you have a bag of coconut flour in your pantry that you want to use up
  • you’re a fan of the benefits that coconut flour has to offer (read below for more on this)
  • you follow a gluten-free/paleo diet and aren’t expecting these coconut flour biscuits to taste like actual buttermilk biscuits

Coconut flour is awesome because:

  • it’s just dried coconut meat
  • high in protein. Like, 5 grams in just TWO tablespoons of coconut flour
  • high in fiber
  • good healthy fats

This recipe is NOT for you if:

  • you hate the flavor of coconut (um, how the heck did you get this far into the post? because you love my witty banter? ah, why thank you…)
  • you expect these to taste like buttermilk biscuits (news alert: it’s basically impossible to replicate buttermilk biscuits using grain-free flours. Coconut flour will never taste like regular flour… because it’s made out of coconut 🙄)

What can you do with these biscuits?

Paleo Sausage Gravy and Biscuits

So what do these coconut flour biscuits taste like?

They’re buttery, crumbly and perfect when used in sweet or savory applications. You can add salt if you’d like these to be savory or sugar for something sweet. You can top them with eggs, sausage and bacon or with maple syrup. Or both. Yes to all the things! (also, I very much hate the phrase “all the things” but I also can’t stop using it… 🤷🏽‍♀️)

I think I already mentioned that these are made with coconut flour (heh). Well, one thing to know about coconut flour is that it’s a bit dry compared to other grain-free flours. I typically use a combination of almond flour, coconut flour and tapioca flour when I bake grain-free cakes (my cakes are amazing BTW… even if you’re not on a GF/paleo diet), but I wanted to share a biscuit recipe using just ONE flour. We recently found out my husband, Roby, has an slight almond allergy and I figure there must be many others out there like him. Truthfully, this recipe is basically the same as my savory Italian coconut flour biscuits. But, I figure that this recipe will be easier for folks to find (I think) when googling or searching the interwebs.

Alright, I think I’ve “talked” enough about all things coconut flour and biscuits today. Actually, I could probably go on for a while but I’m going to end this now. So I can make another cup of coffee and eat another biscuit. Also, you should know my cups of coffee are basically all milk and very little coffee… I think I’m just sensitive to caffeine? I love it, but I hate it. But that’s neither here nor there. Literally, it doesn’t even matter. Okay ending this blog post… now.

Course Appetizer, Breakfast, Snack
Cuisine American
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Total Time 25 mins

Ingredients
 

  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ cup melted ghee or butter plus extra for drizzling on top
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt optional

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Add the coconut flour and baking soda to a bowl and mix well.
  • Pour the melted ghee into the bowl and mix well (I use an electronic hand mixer).
  • Next, add the eggs and continue to mix until well combined (if the mixture looks liquidy at first, wait a couple minutes and the flour will absorb the liquid).
  • Use a large-sized disher/cookie scoop to measure out dough (about 3 tablespoons) and drop onto a baking greased baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Notes

  • These biscuits freeze and thaw very well!
  • Add salt or sugar depending on whether you're making sweet or savory biscuits.
  • If you don't have a large cookie scoop, you can use a ¼ dry measuring cup to mold the biscuits (just fill them up then hit the bottom of the cup and they'll pop right out). That'll change the shape of the biscuit a bit (you can visit this blog post to see what shape it'll give the biscuits).

    Hi! One thing about gluten-free is it tends to be hard. Don’t forget that, you have to get used to that and appreceate what you have! I am going to try these coconut bisciuts as soon as I find the flour!!! E G

    I just tried these yesterday for our New Years Eve dinner. They are delicious! They baked up perfectly- such a nice texture. They took exactly 20 minutes as you said. We made them again for New Years Dinner!
    Both times, we decided to use coconut oil in place of the butter. When they were done we sprinkled them with garlic salt and dipped them in olive oil. A perfect savory flavor when eaten like this! Thank you so much for your awesome recipe! 😊

    Hi!
    I would like to make these but would like to add some grated coconut to it. Would I have to adjust the other ingredients to accommodate the change? I am trying to replicate a traditional Trinidadian coconut bake…..
    Thanks!!

    These are very good, and so easy! I added a cinnamon and golden sweetener mix to half of the batter for a cinnamon roll type taste. I was going to make an icing for those but just ate them plain lol. I look forward to making these again and changing up flavors. Thanks for such a great recipe!

    I too am hyped up on that wonderful drug called coffee and decided that I needed to make biscuits with coconut flour instead of almond flour today…. so here I am.
    Followed recipe exactly using melted butter, did use my whisk not a mixer. YUMMY! I only wish I had made gravy instead of bacon and eggs because these are made for gravy ! Thanks for the recipe!

    Very dry and hard to eat. Had to drench in bacon grease to make them palatable for myself. Great idea and very simple to make, just not to my tastes.

      KJ, aw sorry to hear that you didn’t like this. I know coconut flour baked goods are definitely not for everyone. Hope you’ll give another one of my recipes a try 🙂
