What if we told you that you could indulge in something so savory and delicious that you would balk at the idea of them being a delicious, high-fiber, high-protein super snack? These badass biscuits pack a powerful punch, and they are the perfect way to make sure you are getting both adequate protein and carbohydrates.
When Meg Gunther from My Engineered Nutrition throws down in the kitchen, the results are always awesome, and these protein biscuits are no exception. “The beauty of baking with protein powder is the ability to substitute a flour with protein powder, sometimes significantly reducing the carbohydrates in a given recipe,” enthuses Meg. “Why should that only be limited to desserts and breakfast items? “
Another amazing aspect of these savory protein biscuits is that they are made with our Beef Protein Isolate, which makes for a perfect flour replacement. Don’t fret, the powder doesn’t actually taste like beef. According to Meg, the neutral flavor of the protein pairs perfectly with the other ingredients.
Give these easy-to-make, protein-packed biscuits a try if you have been looking for something savory to add to your protein-based recipe collection!
- Baking Sheet
- Parchment Paper
- ¼ cup unflavored True Nutrition Beef Protein Isolate (1 scoop)
- ½ cup coconut flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ½ tablespoon salt
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup water
- Preheat your oven to 375°F.
In a mixing bowl, combine your dry ingredients including: True Nutrition Beef Protein Isolate, coconut flour, salt and baking powder. Make sure to whisk, so you fully mix the ingredients. Add the eggs and water to the bowl and whisk until batter is smooth. This can be done in a stand mixer, with an electric hand mixer or by hand with a whisk.
- When all ingredients are combined, the dough will be sticky – don’t worry! Form the dough into 4 equal biscuits on your parchment paper lined baking sheet. Because this is a gluten-free batter, the biscuits will not rise much from the original shape you that you have formed them into.
- Place the biscuits into the oven to bake for 18-20 minutes. The biscuits are done baking when a toothpick inserted into the center of a biscuit comes out clean. Serve immediately or allow to cool completely and store in an air-tight container for later.
