Biscuit Bread

I discovered this recipe somewhat by accident one day. I wanted to make my biscuit bites, but I was completely out of muffin tin liners and going out to the store to buy more seemed too time consuming at that moment. So, I decided to try making the recipe in a pie dish like a pie crust for something savory such as chicken pot pie. Well, it did not work as a crust, but it turned out to be this totally amazing bread! We devoured it! It is super easy to make, takes just 5 minutes to make the batter and then it cooks for 14-15 minutes. You can slice it up pizza style and eat it as biscuit bread, with or without added butter (I use Earth Balance Coconut Butter), or you can put on your favorite toppings or spreads and have it as a meal. Fast, delicious, easy…good combo!

Ingredients
  1. 1/3 c of non-gmo canola or coconut oil
  2. 1/3 c of unsweetened applesauce (organic ideally)
  3. *¼ c of water if needed for moisture
  4. ¾ c millet flour
  5. ¼ c of coconut flour
  6. 1.5 tsp baking powder
  7. ¼ tsp of salt
  8. 1 tsp xanthan gum
  9. 1 Tbsp of melted, non-dairy butter (I use Earth Balance Coconut Oil butter, but other non-dairy or dairy based butters will work too)
Directions
  1. Put all ingredients in a bowl and combine using a spoon or rubber spatula until well blended. The texture will be thick but wet, possibly clinging to your utensil. You can add the optional water a little at a time until the texture of the batter is moist looking but still ‘thick’, not runny.
  2. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Use a baking dish (I use round, but square is fine) and prepare it with non-stick spray or butter of choice.
  3. **Be aware that they will NOT change shape while baking, so make sure you spread it out evenly in the dish.
  4. Put in the oven on the middle rack for 15 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden brown.
Notes
  1. This recipe is wonderful by itself, with a spread on top such as jam, non-dairy butter, or even a pesto spread/sauce. I love topping it with vegetables and chicken and enjoying it like a piece of bread. It does not make good sandwich bread though.
