Herbed Chive and Sage Biscuits (Grain-Free with Cassava Flour)

These Herbed Chive and Sage Biscuits are warm, moist, and filling… and you would never guess the secret ingredient that makes these biscuits so moist: AVOCADO!

Plus, if you’re sensitive to grains, these biscuits are grain-free made with cassava flour, which is a root vegetable with resistant starch that supports fullness and digestion. If you’re wanting to re-set your gut, lose belly weight, or decrease high estrogen levels that cause menstrual pain, this recipe is for you!

Packed with flavor from the fresh herbs, your family will be asking for more.


How to Make Herbed Chive and Sage Biscuits (Grain-Free with Cassava Flour)

If you’re not much of a baker, during this quarantine you have more time to experiment! And these biscuits are easy and quick to make. To make these biscuits, you will need:

  • cassava flour
  • avocado
  • eggs
  • ghee or grass-fed butter
  • nutritional yeast
  • garlic granules
  • baking powder
  • sea salt
  • fresh herbs: chives and sage

First, you’re going to preheat your oven to 350. Meanwhile, get out your food processor and add all ingredients to it except the fresh herbs.

Process everything until blended into a dough. Chop the fresh herbs and add them to the processor, pulsing just enough to mix the herbs in, but not over-blending.

Grease a baking dish. Then, you can start measuring out your biscuits. I measure out about 2 Tablespoons  of dough per biscuits. A trick it to wet your hands with water as you are forming your biscuits, so the dough doesn’t stick to your hands!

Pop it into the oven, clean up your kitchen, and after about 18-20 minutes, your biscuits will be done! Eat fresh out of the oven, as is- or add a bit of ghee on top!

Also, I used ghee by one of my favorite local companies, Goddess Ghee, to enhance flavor and creaminess.
