Healthy Biscuits and Gravy

Dairy / Gluten Free Biscuits

Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup coconut oil (in its solid form or you can use Vegan butter)
    • 1 cup coconut milk (I use plain, full-fat canned coconut milk)
    • 2 cups gluten free all purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
    • 4 tsp. baking powder
    • 1 tsp. baking soda
    • 1 tsp. kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Measure coconut oil or vegan butter into a half-cup measuring cup (see recipe notes). Place coconut oil in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.
  2. Measure out your cup of coconut milk. If it’s separated at all, whisk quickly to re-incorporate. Place coconut milk in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt.
  4. Pull coconut oil out of the fridge and add it to your flour mixture. Use your hands or a biscuit cutter to cut the coconut oil into the flour mixture (just like you would with regular butter-based biscuits!) until the mixture is coarse and you have small pieces of coconut oil remaining.
  5. Add coconut milk to flour mixture and stir until everything is combined. The dough shouldn’t be completely smooth – we want to keep lots of coconut oil pieces in there so the biscuits will bake up and be nice and flaky.
  6. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. If the dough is too sticky, gently fold a tablespoon or two of flour into it until it’s easier to work with. I like to gently fold my dough over on itself several times, so I have lots of coconut oil layers working for maximum flakiness. Remember to work quickly with this biscuit dough, though – don’t let the heat from your hands melt the coconut oil!
  7. Roll dough to about ¾” thickness and cut biscuit rounds with a 2″ biscuit cutter.
  8. Place biscuit rounds on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned.
  9. Let biscuits cool for 2-3 minutes, then serve with country gravy once gravy is done.

 

Country Gravy

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 7 tablespoons gluten free all-purpose flour
  • pinch of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon of italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 4 cups Silk Original Unsweetened Cashew Milk, at room temperature

Instructions

1. In a medium sized pot heat oil over medium-high heat, add flour and stir for 2 – 3 minutes, until it turns light golden brown.

2. Add the garlic powder, poultry, Italitan, seasoning and nutmeg, mix well. Mixture will form a ball of sorts.

3.Slowly add the milk and continue to stir, bring just to a boil, reduce heat to medium and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until gravy has thickened to desired consistency, about 10 minutes. Use the back of the spoon/fork to help break up the sausage if needed. Gravy will thicken a bit more as it cools.

4.Season with plenty of pepper and salt to taste. Set aside with lid on, or slightly askew stirring every now and then until ready to serve. If gravy cools too much, heat over low until warmed.
