Chia Microwave Biscuit


Since Iíve cut out wheat in my diet, I can no longer eat some of my older biscuit recipes that used Carbalose flour or Carbquick. So Iíve been tinkering around a bit with Ouizoid's Fantastic Flour Mix. By deleting the coconut flour and adding a couple of ingredients, Iíve made a delicious 2-serving biscuit that is moist and light. Itís falls somewhere between the texture of cake and your Grannyís biscuits. In the mini casserole dish I baked this in, it rose nearly 1" tall. The surface is crusty if you brown it in the broiler a bit. I love the built-in portion control of individual or 2-serving recipes because then we donít have any leftovers to be tempted to go back and eat later. This is quick, easy, tasty! It is not suitable until the highest (grains) rung of the OWL ladder (or Maintenance) of Atkins. With the oat fiber and whey protein, this would NOT be a suitable food for Paleo followers. Primal diners might imbibe if they eat whey protein occasionally.

INGREDIENTS:

2 T. oat fiber
2 T. almond flour
1 T. egg white protein powder (I use NOW brand)
1 T. unflavored, unsweetened whey protein powder (I use NOW brand)
Ĺ tsp. baking powder
Ĺ tsp. glucomannan powder
2 T. grated Monterey Jack cheese
1 T. chia gel (1T. ground chia: 9T. water 10 minutes)
1 tsp. melted unsalted butter
1 T. heavy cream mixed with 3T. water (or all water or all low-carb milk)

DIRECTIONS: Measure the dry ingredients into a small mixing bowl. Stir well. Add in the melted butter, chia gel and cream/water mixture. Stir well to blend ingredients. Allow batter to sit for a few minutes to slightly thicken. The batter will NOT be as thick and stiff as traditional drop biscuit dough. You can either make 2 single biscuits by dividing the batter between two small ramekins or make a mega biscuit (shown in the pic above) in a small oval mini casserole dish and cut it into two smaller biscuits after it is cooked. The smaller ramekin-shaped biscuits should cook in 1 minute on HI in your microwave; the oval mega biscuit will take about 1 minute 30 seconds on HI. My microwave is 1150 watts, but they do vary in wattage. Yours may take a few seconds longer. Remove them from the microwave and gently tip out of their dish with a knife tip onto a small baking pan. Pop into the broiler and brown the top; then flip and brown the bottom as well. Serve at once and ENJOY!

This one was pretty good, Esther. The one I did yesterday, with the coconut flour included, was just too dense and dry to swallow. I had to toss that one out. Then I was smitten with the chia gel idea because it so wonderfully adds moisture and VOILA, this one went down like silk. I'm embarrassed to admit I ate both halves of my mega version: one with just butter (to see what they really taste like; one with the marmalade 'cause I just love marmalade on anything.

Thanks for posting this!! I have also been experimenting with versions of Ouiz's mix. I have been doing one very similar to yours except I kept a tablespoon of the coconut flour in the mix. I haven't used the cheese (trying to cut that out) and used almond milk. I am using chia and find it an exceptional binder that keeps the product from being dry. I have been using chia flour versus the gel. I might try a side by side taste test to see if the gel versus the flour causes any difference in the end product.

Your photos always are so enticing! Makes me want a biscuit right now.

I think Ouiz has a winner there. I plan to play around with it a lot more. I'm just not too fond of too much coconut flour, in anything.

Looks good, Peggy. Sounds like you've gone gluten-free.

Well, pretty much I suppose, Jen, though I just think of my diet as wheat free (all except oat fiber, which just does too much for LC baked goods for me to ever give that up. I'm hoping the pure fiber aspect makes it a little less harmful to my metabolism. How's that for rationalizing.
