Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 30 minutes


  • 1/2 cup almond flour*
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot starch
  • 1/4 cup cassava flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup palm shortening or butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk**


  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 pound breakfast sausage
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 1 cup coconut milk

In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour, arrowroot starch, cassava flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until you get coarse crumbles. Slowly add in milk until dough forms. Form into about 8 biscuits.

Bake at 375° F for about 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.

Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet. Add in sausage, crumble and brown for about 10 minutes or until completely cooked through. Sprinkle on arrowroot starch and stir until mixture is like a thick paste. Sprinkle on salt, pepper and sage. Slowly pour in milk and bring to a simmer over low heat, stirring constantly. Once mixture thickens turn off heat and let rest.

Pour warm gravy over hot biscuits and serve.

*You can grind your own almond flour by placing whole almonds in a blender/food processor and blending until you get a fine meal.

*For the freshest coconut milk make homemade coconut milk. (See video at this link.)
