MAKES 12 biscuits (2 per serving)
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 20 minutes
It may seem a little weird to add mayonnaise to biscuit dough, but the end result will have you wanting to make more biscuits, with even more mayonnaise! Regardless of which mayonnaise you use, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by these little breakfast treasures.
If you can eat dairy and want to incorporate it into this recipe, try folding ½ cup (57 g) of shredded cheddar cheese into the batter before dividing and baking. Don’t get me wrong, though, these biscuits are 100% delicious without a spot of dairy!
¾ cup (155 g) mayonnaise
6 large eggs
1 cup (100 g) coconut flour
1½ teaspoons baking powder
12 slices prosciutto (about 3½ oz/ 100 g), finely chopped
3 green onions (green parts only), finely chopped
- Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- Place the mayonnaise and eggs in a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
- Place the coconut flour and baking powder in a medium-sized mixing bowl and mix to combine. Add the mayonnaise mixture to the dry ingredients and stir to fully incorporate. Fold in the chopped prosciutto and green onions.
- Divide the dough evenly into 12 pieces. Roll one piece into a ball between your palms, then place it on the lined baking sheet and press down with your palm until it’s 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick. Repeat with the remaining dough pieces.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the edges of the biscuits begin to turn golden and the tops crack a bit.
- Remove from the oven and serve.
STORE IT: Keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
REHEAT IT: Place on a rimmed baking sheet and warm in a preheated 300°F (150°C) oven until heated through, about 10 minutes. Or place a single serving on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on 50% power for 30 to 45 seconds. (Using 50% power ensures that the biscuits won’t overcook.)
THAW IT: Set the biscuits on the counter for an hour or so to defrost completely before using the reheating instructions above.
