I wanted to cook my family something special on Sunday morning, since I had cooked our usual Sunday breakfast, bacon and eggs, on Saturday. Earth Fare had organic bell peppers last week, so I bought some to make colorful Flower Power Eggs. We had leftover bacon, but I thought I needed something else to serve with it. Since I’m finished with my Whole30, I decided to make the Almond Flour Biscuits from Elana’s Pantry.
Biscuits – from Elana’s Pantry
2 ½ cups blanched almond flour, plus about 1 cup for dusting the dough (thanks Karen!)
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
earth balance natural butter y spread (soy free)
1 tablespoon agave nectar
until a nice dough forms.
Roll out dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper to 1 ½ inches thick
Dust dough with extra almond flour if it is sticky and/or misbehaving
Cut the dough into biscuits using a mason jar with a 3-inch wide mouth (or use a biscuit cutter…)
Using a spatula, transfer biscuits
to a parchment lined baking sheet. (I used the top parchment paper from rolling out the dough)
Bake at 350° for 15 minutes, until biscuits are browned on the bottom edges
Flower Power Eggs from Donna at Apron Strings
2 bell peppers, preferably different colors
Cooking oil or fat of choice (I used olive oil)
Salt and pepper to taste
Cover the pan (I used that other piece of parchment paper) and fry until eggs are just cooked through. I had the smallest but deepest pepper ring, so I had to make mine over-easy to get the egg to finish cooking.
Tom’s plate is only half smiling because he didn’t like the pepper. Jewel didn’t like it either, but they both still ate their eggs. Dora said the egg tasted too much like a pepper and wouldn’t eat it. She only ate about half her biscuit and piece of bacon, so the rest of us descended like vultures on the remains of her meal. This morning Jewel and I had open-faced egg McBiscuits that were great, but I forgot to take pics.
