  • Cookie sheet / baking sheet
  • Ice cream scoop (optional)


Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • ¼ cup melted butter (or coconut oil if dairy-free)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp melted butter for brushing (or coconut oil if dairy-free)


  • Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
  • Scoop about three heaping tablespoons of biscuit dough onto the prepared baking sheet. I use an ice cream scoop to make this step super quick, and the biscuits bake evenly because they’re close to the same size.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown and firm yet springy.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use gluten free flour instead of almond flour?

Unfortunately, almond flour absorbs liquid differently than most gluten-free flour blends and won’t likely work in this recipe.

I’m egg free. Can I use an egg replacer such as a flax egg in this recipe?

I haven’t tested it with any egg replacements, but if you do please leave a comment and let us know how it turns out.
