I have catered this recipe to fit taste preference to almost anyone. The great part about today's post is that it is in category to one of those baking experiments which turned out as some dangerously delicious biscuits! Spelt flour is one of my recent favorite flours which I have been using recently in most of my bakes. Spelt flour works awesome for making beautiful breads and cakes. I have gathered all the ingredients to try a simple, yet delicious biscuit bake. This spelt flour biscuit is loaded with sweet and salty compounds in addition to being completely eggless! So, what exactly is Spelt? Spelt is an ancient grains which can replace very well whole wheat flour in most of our bakes. Baking biscuits out of this flour turned them into a delicious, heartier, and healthier alternative to a regular fresh-out-of-the-oven biscuit. The crispy edges of this healthy treat will definitely please your taste buds and you will just love to savor them.
Let's get us back to business because well, we love to bake. So, now it's time to get to the recipe!
1.5 Cup Spelt flour 1/2 Cup Sugar (I use Monk Fruit, but any will do) 1/2 Tsp Baking Powder 1/4 Cup Melted Butter or Oil of choice (try Extra Virgin Olive Oil for a bite) 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract 1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp Cajun ** (this is optional)
1/4 tsp Onion Powder
1/4 tsp Thyme or Parsley (Fresh is best) 1. Beat the melted butter with sugar until the mixture turns smooth and sugar gets dissolved. 2. Add the vanilla extract, salt, spelt flour, baking powder, seasonings and mix everything until it turns to dough. 3. Mix well with your hand, and if it's still dry, add in small amounts of milk (or water if dairy-free) at a time until everything comes together in the dough. 4. Keep the dough in your fridge for an hour. 5. Meanwhile line a baking sheet on a baking tray and wait for the oven to preheat to 350 F. 6. Pinch medium sized balls and roll them or use a 1/2" scooper and flatten them on the baking sheet. 7. Leave about 1 - 2 inches between dough balls – they will rise. 8. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the bottom of the biscuits turn golden brown.
9. Remove the tray and let them cool completely for about 10 minutes and then serve or conserve them in an air-tight container for storage.
