Grain Free Cheesy Buttermilk Biscuits



Cheesy Grain Free Buttermilk Biscuits
  1. 1 cup Arrowroot Flour
  2. 1 1/2 cup Blanched Almond Flour
  3. 1 tsp Aluminum Free Baking Soda
  4. 4 tbsp Grassfed Butter
  5. 1 heaping cup grated Grassfed Chedder Cheese
  6. 1/2 cup Buttermilk, Homemade or a good brand
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease silpat or parchment paper lined cookie sheet with coconut oil. Put arrowroot flour, almond flour, and baking soda in large bowl. Cut cold butter into small cubes and with pastry blender or food processor mix until it resembles course cornmeal. Mix in shredded cheese. Add buttermilk and mix until incorporated. The batter should be pretty lumpy from cheese and small bits of butter. These are more like drop biscuits so scoop batter into spoon and drop them onto greased pan. Bake 15 min or until light brown. To add a little more southern to your biscuits you can brush melted butter on top with a pastry brush halfway through cooking time.
Raising Branches

 I’m a true southern girl born and raised in a small country town in Alabama. I’m not sure what is so comforting about living in the South but I really do love it. I enjoy the familiar slow pace feel of small town living. I didn’t realize how much I loved it until I spent six years in San Diego, California. There was much I loved about California but the South is and will always be my home. Now that I’m back I love it more than I did before I left. Southern food is one of the many things I missed the most. I’m one of those girls born into a family line of homemaking women who spend most of their time in the kitchen. I am proud to say that I am now one of those women and will teach my daughter the same trade if she is interested. I get so much joy out of being in the kitchen and feeding my family.

When I went grain free in 2012 I was so saddened at the thought of giving up southern comfort foods such as pies, all things fried, casseroles, and the big kicker buttermilk biscuits. I remember as a child helping my Great Grandmother Griffin make buttermilk biscuits from scratch. I loved rolling out the dough with her old wooden rolling pin and watching them rise in the oven. I made homemade biscuits most weekends for my family and enjoyed not only making them and eating them but also the togetherness of family the meal provided. The thought of parting with this was very difficult. I came to the conclusion that a meal will always provide the togetherness of family that will never going away, I just have to reprogram my brain to cook differently. Now that I’m two years into my grain free diet I have found many replacements for my favorite southern and non-southern comfort foods making it very easy not to stray away for my changed diet. Biscuits were a challenge though. I tried every grain free biscuit recipe out there attempting to find something that comes close to my beloved biscuits. Although most are good, they just aren’t comparable to the original. I finally came across a recipe for cheesy grain free biscuits that came close but needed some southern tweeking to make them into a grain free country girls dream. Y’all enjoy!
