My latest biscuit experiment came out delicious! The hubs said he really liked these. I decided to see what a little Einkorn flour would bring to my new Buttermilk Biscuits recipe posted last week. I’m pleased with the results! The texture didn’t change dramatically, and they took a wee bit longer to cook, but I love the added buttermilk taste of these! This recipe is not suitable until you reach the grains level of the Atkins carb re-introduction ladder. With the addition of the Einkorn flour, these are certainly not my lowest carb biscuits. So browse my other biscuit recipes if you are looking for a lower carb count. I have a number of them now.🙂
