I have said before that I am not a cook, nor do I play one on TV. But I can follow instructions and typically have things come pretty close to the recipe, even if it isn’t perfect.
This, on the other hand, is not even close. Do you see how flat these things are? And how the color is completely off too. These are not your typical biscuits. I wanted this recipe to work so badly because these Glazed Blueberry Biscuits are a copycat recipe to emulate Bo-Berry biscuits from Bojangles, one of my favorite treat foods of all time. Plus it only had a few ingredients in it and the picture looked really nice too. But now I think that the the picture is of someone else’s dish, and not the author’s because I was away off. I used coconut sugar since I am Paleo, as they say in the recipe, so that is probably why the color is so brown versus more of a white. But there is no reason for them to be this flat when compared to the recipe. I thought they tasted pretty decent, but the rest of the family couldn’t get past the presentation of the brown blobs with sugar on top.
I think I’ve determined that coconut flour bread recipes just aren’t ideal unless there is another flour in the mix as well. So, from here forward I’ll likely look for recipes that have a mix of coconut and almond or something else to see if that makes it a little more wheat-like. I have tried banana bread with it as well, and while it works decently, it still isn’t quite as smooth as gluten-containing bread.
I definitely won’t be doing this again anytime soon, though I think if I could get them to rise a bit more and not be so spongy, it might be more likely.
