Review: Coconut flour saps a lot of moisture from mixture when baking-that is why it calls for more eggs. I used 2.5 tbsp butter and 2.5 tbsp of coconut oil to get a nice balance of both in the mixture. For more coconut flavor-use all coconut oil. They are small biscuits, but perfect to use 2 and sandwich between egg, sausage and cheese for a SUPER filling, protein packed and healthy breakfast that will keep you full for a long time! Try the variations too-there are lots of creative things you can do with these.

Remember, coconut flour and almond flour are low carb flours and can be enjoyed in moderation in a low carb diet.
