  • 2 lrg raw egg
  • 5 Tbsp butter, unsalted
  • 0 1/2 cup almond flour, super finely ground, gluten free
  • 6 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 7 tbsp sugar free powdered monkfruit sweetener with erythritol, Lakanto
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder, low sodium
  • 0 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 0 1/2 tsp table salt
  • 0 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 0 1/2 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 cup frozen cranberries
  • 2 Tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp fresh orange peel


  1. Allow eggs to come to room temperature and melt ¼ cup butter and cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Into a large bowl, sift together almond flour, coconut flour, 2 tablespoons powdered sweetener, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt. Whisk in the ground flaxseeds until evenly combined.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the almond milk, eggs, and vinegar.
  5. Pour melted butter into the large bowl with the flours, then add the almond milk mixture. Stir gently until everything is just mixed- do not overmix. Gently fold in roughly chopped cranberries.
  6. Onto a baking sheet, portion a scant ¼ cup batter, forming 12 biscuits gently to be at least 1-inch high. For best results do not press the batter into the measuring cup but allow the batter to keep its fluffiness. 
  7. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the tops are beginning to brown, watching the bottoms to ensure they do not burn. 
  8. While the biscuits are baking, in a small bowl use a fork to mix together remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter, orange juice and remaining 5 tablespoons powdered sweetener. While biscuits are warm, evenly top each with about 1 teaspoon orange glaze, and evenly sprinkle with orange zest. One biscuit as described is one serving.

Cooking Tip

Be gentle with this batter and you will be rewarded with fluffy and tender biscuits. These biscuits are fluffy because of the leavening powder of baking powder in combination with apple cider vinegar. If overmixed, it will activate the baking powder too early, and the biscuits can end up dense and flat. So mix just until all the flours are moist, gently fold the chopped cranberries in, and gently scoop the batter onto the baking sheet. With the appropriate care, these will keep their fluffiness and fall apart with each bite!
