This is one of the easier biscuit recipes that don't require a blending of various flours. They are pretty healthy and made using coconut oil.

Ingredients of Quinoa Biscuits

  • 1 cup toasted quinoa flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Orange or vanilla essence (or rose or lemon or whichever you choose)
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds

How to Make Quinoa Biscuits

  • 1.1. Preheat the oven at about 350 degrees F.
  • 2.2. Add the quinoa flour, baking soda and baking powder in a large bowl and sift.
  • 3.3. In another bowl, mix together the sugar and coconut oil - you may need to use an electric beater for this. Once the mixture is smooth, add in the egg and beat until creamy. This should take another 2-3 minutes or so. Finally, add the orange or vanilla flavouring.
  • 4.4. Then very carefully, fold in the dry ingredients into the wet, until everything is perfectly combined.
  • 5.5. Add the nuts to this mixture. If you like, you can put in chocolate chips or another type of nut - it is all up to you.
  • 6.6. Onto a baking sheet, plop little scoops of the batter and flatten the top slightly. They will expand once they cook so make sure to leave lots of space between each scoop.
  • 7.7. Bake them for about 10 minutes or until the edges become a little hard - they maybe a little underdone, but turn off the oven anyway. Let the cookies cool and harden for a few minutes, then transfer them gently to a wire rack where they will soon be ready to eat.
