Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 large pastured egg whites
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
  • 1 c. ground organic almond flour
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. Spectrum Organic Shortening
  • ¾ tsp. aluminum-free baking powder
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk dry ingredients.
  3. Add cold shortening into dry ingredients, and using a fork or pastry blender, cut shortening into flour until the mixture has pea-sized chunks throughout.
  4. Chill mixture for 10 minutes (NOTE: This is very important – the colder the fat is, the fluffier your biscuits will be.)
  5. Meanwhile, whisk egg whites with a fork in a bowl until foamy.
  6. Remove mixture from fridge and whisk in the egg whites – you want a runny dough with chunks of almond mixture.
  7. Pour it into greased foil-lined ramekins or a muffin top pan and transfer to hot oven immediately.
  8. For ramekins, bake 15 minutes. For muffin top pan, bake 12 minutes.

    Hi I read an article written by you that had a book on making bread that cost $14.00. I unfortunately deleted the email and I cannot find the bread book you spent so much time perfecting. Could you send me the link.
    Thanks
