**Update:  I tried a new biscuit recipe tonight that I like better than the biscuit recipe below, although both are good.  If you’d like to use the new biscuit recipe, click here.**

Growing up, I loved my Mom-mom’s fried chicken with biscuits and milk gravy.  I decided that I needed to make sausage milk gravy with some primal biscuits the other day – it was a huge hit!  My husband raved and said he liked the biscuits & gravy even better the next day as the flavors settled.  So yay! 🙂

Biscuits

6 egg whites

3/4 cup of almond flour

1/4 cup coconut flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup milk (use coconut milk to make paleo)

2 T butter, cut up

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  I lined a baking sheet with foil and greased the foil.

Mix together almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt together in a mixing bowl.  Cut in butter.  Stir in milk.  Set aside.

In another bowl, beat the 6 egg whites until very white and foamy.  Fold in egg whites into flour mixture until well combined.  Drop batter by spoonfuls onto baking sheet.  Bake biscuits 15-18 minutes or until tops start to brown.

Sausage Milk Gravy

1 lb ground sausage

1 T almond flour

3 T arrowroot powder

2-3 cups of milk (I used about 2 1/2 cups)

Salt and pepper to taste (don’t be shy on the pepper!)

Brown sausage until cooke throughly.  Remove from pan, but leave the grease in the pan.  Add a little extra grease of your choice if you need it (there needs to be about 1/4 cup of grease in the pan).

To your grease, add your almond flour & arrowroot powder, whisking over medium heat until your get a good paste.

Add milk and bring to a slow boil, whisking constantly.  Add sausage back into the mixture and continue stirring until it is the desired thickness.    Serve the gravy over the biscuits.

Enjoy!
