Breakfast of Champions

So I decided to do a little experimenting with this whole gluten-free lifestyle. I must say its not as hard as I thought it would be, but it is still rather difficult. I am a bread-lover, I love to indulge in biscuits or pancakes on the weekends…keyword was weekends. It’s a sort of guilty pleasure moment type of thing.

So imagine my excitement when we scanned the grocery aisles and found an entire gluten-free baking goods section. What caught my eye you ask?

The possibilities that stood before me! My taste buds began to water! I looked over at LaurenAsh…of course she is not sharing the feeling. Despite not having any restrictions she has decided to be a team player and also eat a gluten-free diet. Did I mention that our dogs now have to eat wheat-free and gluten-free food as well, one of them has allergies…can you believe that?! It’s a family affair!

Back to more important things…mama is going to make some homemade biscuits!

Believe it or not, it doesn’t even include a lot of ingredients.

2 cups of biscuit baking mix
3/4 cup of milk (I used vanilla almond milk to give them a little flavor)
1/2 cup of butter (made of vegetable oil)
1/4 cup of all purpose flour to dust (also gluten and wheat-free)

Oh and dare I forget a large counter, rolling pin, biscuit cutter and baking pan.

After I mixed the ingredients well enough to form a near perfect dough ball.

Pressed it out to about 1 1/2 in thick

I let the dough set for a few mins and went to cutting. Before I knew it I was down to the last of the dough…

…with 8 perfectly round biscuits.

I let them bake for about 15 mins at 375 degrees.

I must say I was really proud of myself. So decided to take my experimentation a little further and smeared almond butter one of my biscuits. We have never tasted it before so I made sure there was also honey on the table.

Turned out to be a big hit! We even had enough to enjoy with breakfast the next morning.

Fresh Tilapia baked with chopped peppers, scrambled eggs and homemade biscuits. Needless to say we were full past our lunch hour!
