I freaking love biscuits! I could eat ten of them and still want more. But really, since started Paleo, I haven't really craved them and it is easier to say no.
A few weekends ago, however, I just didn't feel like eggs and that was all I seemed to have on hand for breakfast. I dug through my fridge and my kitchen cabinets and decided to try my hand at Paleo biscuits.
These don't have the light, flaky texture of a normal biscuit but they quenched my craving and I really like them for breakfast or as a snack.
