Snow! We finally have snow! Lots and lots of wet, heavy snow. And, what better food to eat when it’s cold and snowy out than soup.
But, of course, you need to have biscuits with soup, right? Well, in my house, you do.
My dad always called baking powder biscuits “gun powder biscuits.” I know not why. But, in an homage to him, I continue the tradition.
Of course, when he made them, they were often made with Bisquick.
We won’t go there.
Nope, my biscuits are not only vegan, they’re grain-free.
And they pass the kiddo test. Oh yes they do.
Grain-free, Vegan “Gun Powder” Biscuits
3/4 cup almond milk
1 t. psyllium powder
3/4 cup (90 g) fine ground garbanzo bean flour
1 cup (120 g) almond meal
1/4 cup (28 g) arrowroot starch
2 t. baking powder
3/4 t. salt
1/4 cup (48 g) shortening
Preheat the oven to 450°. In a measuring cup, mix the almond milk and psyllium powder. Set aside. In a bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut in the shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the almond milk and mix with a fork or spoon until mixture comes together. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until nicely browned.
