Project Description

This recipe for coconut biscuits is a classic biscuit recipe, using some of my favorite coconut products.

Ingredients

3 C flour
1/3 C sugar
2 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 t salt
6 oz. coconut oil
1/4 C toasted slivered almonds
1/4 C flaked unsweetened coconut
1 C coconut milk
an array of freshly baked coconut biscuits

Coconut Biscuit Directions

Heat the oven to 375F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment.

In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and mix well.

Add the coconut oil and mix until the mixture resembles a coarse crumb.  Add the toasted almonds and coconut and mix well.

Make a well in the center and add the coconut milk.   Use a spatula to mix the coconut milk into the dry mixture.
Once the mixture holds it’s shape turn out onto a floured work surface and flatten dough to 1/2″ thick.

Using a 2″ biscuit cutter cut into biscuits and place on the parchment lined sheet.  Press the scraps together, flatten and cut into biscuits.

Bake 16-18 minutes or until the biscuits are a light golden color.

Makes 12 biscuits

Tip: You can combine all the dry ingredients one or two days ahead.  Add the coconut milk and cut the biscuits right before you want to bake them.
