Peanut Butter (Flour) Breakfast Biscuits

And it starts all over! How was the weekend? Ours was good. Lots of teaching & family time. We had our special facebook Body Pump launch at the gym on Saturday afternoon, which great! The music in the new release is really fun. There were four of us that taught (I’m in the upper right, not sure why this picture is so fuzzy…)

Josh’s parents also arrived Saturday night and we have been enjoying their company ever since. Josh’s Mom brought me a HUGE new supply of Trader Joe’s goodies (based on many of your suggestions).  On Sunday morning, I continued my love affair with Trader Joe’s Peanut Flour and made up Peanut Butter Flour Breakfast Biscuits. I started with Alton Brown’s scone recipe & adjusted as needed:

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups peanut flour
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 6 tablespoons butter (smart balance, earth balance, etc)
  • 3/4 cup milk (cows, almond, soy, etc)
  • 1 egg (or 1 tablespoon flax mixed with 3 tablespoons water)

biscuits 001

Directions:

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flours, baking powder and sugar. Mix well. Cut in butter. In a separate bowl, combine milk with beaten egg then add to dry ingredients.  Drop by heaping tablespoon full on a baking sheet.

Bake for ~17-18 minutes.biscuits 006

These are light and delicious!

And now- for the winner of the peanut butter flour chocolate chip cookie giveaway:

Peanut butter breakfast biscuits are a brilliant idea. I don't have peanut flour, but I did just grind chestnuts and acorns - a nut flour biscuit breakfast might happen in my house soon!

Isn't Group X the best? :D I'm gong to see if I can't order some of that flour. I'm absolutely in love with the things you can make with it.

I hope you're having an awesome part of the week. I'm sorry that I haven't been around much lately, but things are getting more organized here, which gives me more time for blogging. :P
