I’ve wanted to make something with coconut flour for some time now and I was really lucky to find a great recipe on my first attempt. The coconut flour and cheese biscuits recipe has been adapted from here, and the result was simply fantastic. The biscuits turned out soft, fluffy and really irresistible. Half of the tray disappeared while they were still warm in which I myself had a big part. Their taste is slightly unusual, due to the combination of coconut and cheese which turned out to be unexpectedly good.
Another big plus of the recipe is that it`s extremely easy and fast. The ingredients are mixed, stirred and baked – I love such easy recipes, especially when they are so successful.
Note that the coconut flour dough requires more eggs and fluids so it sticks together and doesn`t turn out too dry. The original recipe uses 2 eggs and 3 egg whites, but I decided not to overdo it – after all the biscuits were for my daughter. Therefore I reduced the number of eggs, added water and slightly increased the amount of the sour cream. So if you choose to cook the biscuits with some other type of flour, you can reduce the number of eggs to 1. The taste, however, will not be the same.
Feel free to continue with the experiments on this recipe – the sour cream can be replaced with yogurt, you can add different types of cheese and spices. Furthermore, these exquisite coconut flour and cheese biscuits can be offered not only as a snack to your toddler, but are also a delicious addition to a main course for lunch or dinner for you. Now let’s see how they are prepared.
Coconut flour and cheese biscuits
What you`ll need:
50 g coconut flour
50 g white flour
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
20 g butter
50 g hot water
100 g sour cream
70-80 g shredded cheese
How to cook it:
Preheat your oven to 180°С and prepare a baking tray with baking paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together the coconut and white flour, baking powder and salt. Melt the butter by pouring the hot water on top of it in a small bowl. Mix half of the shredded cheese, eggs, sour cream and melted butter with water with the flour mixture and stir until well combined.
Using a spoon shape the biscuits on the prepared tray. Leave a little space between them as the biscuits spread during baking. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of them.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes until golden. Let them cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before serving.
