coconut oil post coconut biscuits 3 ways

There is nothing more satisfying than making a batch of biscuits that convert to 3 different flavour combo’s all within about 30 minutes. These Coconut Biscuits 3 Ways are the easiest and quickest recipe to whip up when you need a batch of biscuits in a jiffy. Just recently I had a few girlfriends around for a hand and nail therapy session and of course where there are girls, there has to be tea and biscuits! I’ve been really inspired by Lauren over at Empowered Sustenance who has some wonderful coconut flour recipes. She is a strong advocate of coconut flour making it her No 1. gluten free flour preference. You can read her article here.

So in a flurry to find a new and interesting recipe I tried out her Ginger and Fennel Coconut Flour Cookies. To my delight – they were a delight – although for 1 thing – there was just a bit too much coconut flour. The swallow factor was too course and they seemed to irritate my throat. It could just be me as I have some salicylate intolerances that I’m always testing the waters with and believe it or not, one of them is coconut! My guests enjoyed them and they passed the “daughter” test – which made me very happy.

Anyway to cut a long story short I got to thinking that maybe I could change up the recipe. And so I did! And I was delighted again – not only did the recipe like my throat – but this recipe was transformed into something from my mother’s kitchen. I might even be bold enough to say that I could fool any wheat loving sugar fiend with these biscuits – well at least the male members of my family. I tried three variations the 1st one is with linseed meal and the 2nd is with tapioca flour. The 3rd is with some added cocoa. This may in fact be the breakthrough I’ve been looking for in gluten free baking, or not. Whatever it is I hope you when next you need a yummy GF biscuit recipe, you’ll give them a go.
