Pumpkin Spice Biscuits (Gluten-free, Dairy-Free Option)

You may still be sipping margaritas but I am ready for Fall and pumpkin spice!   These biscuits are mildly sweet and are great with a latte or cup of tea.  Ditch the coffee house versions which are loaded with refined sugar/flour and unhealthy processed vegetable oils.

This recipe is also versatile and can be customized to your liking! See notes below the recipe for additional flavor ideas and a vegan option.

 

Ingredients:

2 cups almond flour (I use Bob’s super fine almond flour. Almond meal will result in a coarser biscuit)

2 tsp aluminum free baking powder

1/4 tsp sea salt

1 tsp cinnamon

½ cup pumpkin puree

3 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

1 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

4 tablespoons melted butter or ghee (dairy free option: coconut oil or avocado oil)

Optional add-ins:  ¼ cup of dairy-free chocolate chips (to keep dairy-free use Enjoy Life dairy-free chocolate chips or Lily’s dark chocolate chips for refined sugar free)),  ¼ cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or grease with some butter or oil
  • Mix all dry ingredients
  • Add in remaining ingredients. Mix until combined.  The mixture will be moist.
  • Form biscuits (or your hands) and place on the baking sheet. I usually make 12 biscuits from this recipe
  • Bake at 250 degrees for 30-40  minutes (it depends on the size of the biscuits, for larger biscuits cook about 40 minutes)

Other flavor ideas: 

Leave out cinnamon, pumpkin, maple syrup or honey, vanilla and add:

Garlic and cheddar: Leave out cinnamon, pumpkin, maple syrup or honey, vanilla and add: ½ tsp garlic powder and ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Banana walnut: Add one ripe banana and ¼ cup walnuts to original recipe (banana will add sweetness so adjust amount of maple syrup or honey to your liking)

Sesame garlic: Leave out cinnamon, pumpkin, maple syrup or honey, vanilla and add: ½ tsp garlic powder and 2 tablespoons of sesame seed

To make vegan

Use flax egg and coconut or avocado oil.

Flax egg directions:  1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 2.5 tablespoons of water for each egg in the recipe.  Let sit for 5 minutes before incorporating into the recipe.
