- 1 1/8 cups blanched almond flour (120g) chilled
- 1 tsp baking powder (5g)
- 1/4 tsp salt (1g) omit if using salted butter
- 3 tbsp cold unsalted butter cut into cubes (45g)
- 2 egg whites lightly beaten
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat.
Combine almond flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
Add the cubes of cold butter to the bowl and cut the butter into the flour using a pastry cutter or fork. Combine until the mixture is in gravel-sized pieces.
Whisk the egg whites in a separate bowl, then add them to the flour mixture. Stir until fully combined. Don't over stir. Butter chunks will remain.
Using your hands or a spoon, scoop out enough dough to form a biscuit. Place it on the baking sheet. Continue until you've formed all of the biscuits. Make sure to space them apart so they have room to grow while baking. Flatten down slightly with your hand.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or when they've turned a nice golden color.
- If using salted butter, omit the extra salt.
- Make sure your ingredients are cold. Chill the almond flour 20 minutes before using. Use only cold butter.
- The biscuits won't flatten much in the oven. If you want them flatter, flatten them down to the shape you want before baking.
