Chickpea Cheddar Kefir Biscuits
Serves: 16 biscuits
  • 2½ cups (10½ ounces) chickpea flour (garbanzo bean flour)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon herbs de provence or other savory seasoning
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 cup kefir (whole milk, unsweetened)
  • 1½ cups (6 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 bunch scallions, chopped (white and light green parts)
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. Whisk together the chickpea flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and seasoning.
  3. Add the butter and, using a pastry blender or two knives, cut it in until the mixture is crumbly. Add the kefir, cheese, and scallions and stir until well combined.
  4. Drop mounds of batter onto the baking sheets using a 1½ ounce ice cream scoop or a ¼ cup measure. Flatten each mound slightly so that all the biscuits are the same thickness. (Wet your fingers if necessary to prevent sticking.)
  5. Bake on the bottom racks of the oven for 12-15 minutes, rotating the baking sheets halfway through.
