This biscuits and sausage gravy recipe makes for a perfect cozy Sunday brunch with friends. The best part? This recipe is 100% Paleo-approved!
Without a doubt, biscuits with sausage gravy is pure comfort food. Not only is this dish delicious, it also brings back many memories of lazy Sunday brunches with the family. My mother would make homemade, from-scratch biscuits to accompany her creamy gravy recipe.
Unfortunately, refined wheat flour biscuits are not approved for a primal lifestyle. However, you’ll be surprised to find out how easy it is to re-create the amazing flavors of biscuits and sausage gravy with Paleo-approved ingredients!
The biscuits in this quick recipe are simple; coconut flour, coconut oil, eggs, salt, baking soda. The gravy has that creamy, sumptuous texture of its milk-based, flour-thickened counterpart, but it’s dairy-free and gluten-free! Let’s just say it didn’t last long when I made it for my family for dinner.
Note: It’s very important to the flakiness of these homemade biscuits that you use solid coconut oil, not melted. The solid coconut oil will coat just part of the coconut flour grains and leave others uncoated (hence “coarse crumbs”), leaving you with a flakier baked good. Melted coconut oil is likely to yield tough biscuits. Also, the brand of coconut flour you use matters. Good coconut flour is very finely ground and has a creamy yellow tinge. Some coconut flour is pure white and has an almost “flaky” texture; don’t use this for your biscuits unless you want them to fall apart.
