The Best Part About These Rosemary Biscuits? They're Paleo-Friendly!

These golden-brown biscuits have just a hint of herbal rosemary flavor. They're so flaky and rich you almost won't believe they're gluten-free.  

Rosemary Almond Flour Biscuits

Yield: 6 biscuits
Active Time:

2 1/2 cups almond flour, plus extra for rolling dough
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 eggs
1/4 cup lard
1 tablespoon raw honey
3/4 tablespoon finely chopped rosemary leaves

Special equipment: a 3-inch round biscuit or cookie cutter

Rosemary almond flour biscuits

Combine almond flour, salt, and baking soda together in a large bowl. Whisk to incorporate.

In a small bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, lard, honey, and rosemary. Mix wet ingredients into dry until thoroughly combined and dough comes together. Cover bowl and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or up to 3 days.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Press or roll out dough to a 1-inch thickness, sprinkling the surface with extra flour to avoid sticking. Cut out circles with a 3-inch cutter and place on prepared baking sheet. Whisk remaining egg in a small bowl and brush on top of biscuits. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

    almond flour...crushing the hopes of people with both nut and wheat allergies over and over again...

    Could you use coconut oil instead of lard? I'd like a vegetarian version of this I think :) And perhaps instead of almond flour you could use garbanzo flour?

      Hi Gwen! I'm with Member Services at Thrive Market. We have yet to try a version of this nature, but would love some feedback if you try it out!

    Anyone know the exchange to keto, what can I replace the honey with considering the consistency...I use erythritol or Stevia alot, wonder if I'd need to make up for the moisture? (just starting to bake, thanks)

    This recipe is the bomb. My husband is obsessed with these biscuits. We are on the GAPS diet, and we never thought we'd find a "GAPS-legal" biscuit. Thank you!!

    Is there an approved swap for the almond flour?

  • Mathew Michel

    Is there a recommended swap for lard? (vegetarian option)
