Amaranth Carrot Raisin Biscuits
These biscuits are inspired from a cookie recipe by Bob's Red Mill. I love the taste of amaranath flour in biscuits. I was intrigued by this cookie recipe but really wanted biscuits. And yet, I also was very fearful to alter a baking recipe because it is not the same as cooking. Modifying baking recipes usually end up in a disaster...at least in my experience. However, these biscuits turned out pretty good. They are dense so you probably only need to eat one of them for breakfast!
6 T high heat organic sunflower oil
1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
1/2 c organic agave nectar
3/4 c water
2 t vanilla extract
2 c organic amaranth flour
2/3 c organic whole wheat flour
1 c organic rolled oats
1 1/4 t baking soda
3/4 t freshly grated sea salt
1 1/4 t cinnamon
1 1/2 c carrots, grated (about 3 carrots)
1/2 c raisins
2. Whisk wet ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
3. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
4. Slowly add wet ingredients to the dry mixture and stir until combined. The dough will be very stiff.
5. Once evenly combined, add carrots and raisins and stir.
6. Oil a cookie sheet. Form dough into balls by the handful. Place on the cookie sheet.
8. Cool on a wire rack immediately.
