Pumpkin Biscuits – Paleo, GAPS and SCD approved

By   12 Comments

The past couple of weeks I’ve been doing our Sugar Control Detox just to reset things after an emotional roller-coaster of a spring. It’s familiar territory at this point, but a few days in I found myself hankering for something “muffiny”. Odd for me, since I actually quite hate muffins.

Anyhow, my fabulous husband, Chef James, came to the rescue and surprised me with a tray of fresh-baked pumpkin biscuits – paleo, GAPS-friendly, and totally sugar control detox approved. These biscuits have been very popular with our detoxers because they satisfy that yearning for something doughy without breaking the cleanse in any way. They’re 100% sugar and sweetener free, but still really yummy — particularly with a dollop of coconut cream or butter on top. But don’t believe me. Even Sia, our almost-two year old, devoured them. 🙂

    Those look so good. Except for the pumpkin, I have all the ingredients. Well, I might have the pumpkin too, but who knows how old it is.

  2. I’ve been experimenting around with a pumpkin biscuit cookie for a while, and you got it just right! These came out PERFECT. I can’t wait to make some liver pate or soup to pair them with…

    Does it have to be coconut flour? I made almond flour last night, and I really do not wish to have to purchase any additional.

    • You can try with almond flour, but you’ll need to use fewer eggs and more of the flour (the reason we use so many eggs is because the coconut absorbs it so much). We’ve not done it with almond flour, but a starting point for trying it out would be: 3-4 eggs and 1 cup almond flour (start with 3 eggs, and if the batter is nice and moist, you don’t need to add a 4th)

    Would you have the nutrition content on these? Trying to eat more Keto paleo.

    Can I make this with butternut squash instead? I have a ton of it on hand right now.

    • Give it a try! I’d puree it well first but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work.

    We’re allergic to eggs. Do you think using flax egg or an egg replacer will work for this recipe?

    • You know, this recipe is so egg-dependent I’m not sure it would work well with an egg substitute. I think there would need to be substantially more modifications… You can try it, but I’m not sure it would work.

    Can you freeze them?

    • You can, and they freeze decently well, but I do find that they’re not as good as when they’re fresh. We usually refrigerate them to extend their life.

    Do these freeze and warm up well?
