Gluten Free Chocolate Biscuits

These gluten free chocolate biscuits are filled with toasted coconut and packed with healthy dark chocolate, a healthy and decadent way to start the day.

I know I just said how I didn’t really miss grains that much after doing 30 days of paleo but I have to say it’s been really nice eating something other than my 2 minute paleo english muffin every day for breakfast. Especially when that something involves chocolate.

Gluten Free Chocolate Biscuits

If you’re looking at the words “gluten free” and getting all sassy in your head I want you to go buy this gluten free flour use it like you normally would for baking something and then tell me it’s not amazing. I’m basically at the point where I use it as my go-to flour and poor Mr. All-Purpose has the crap seat in the corner of the pantry lately along with his friends Whole Wheat and White Whole Wheat.

Toasted Coconut Chocolate Biscuits

(for more gluten free baked goods check out these chocolate cherry muffin tops or these spicy rosemary chocolate chip cookies)

Buzz worthy diet titles aside though, these are biscuits with chocolate and toasted coconut in them and I’m not only telling you to eat them for breakfast, I’m telling you they’re good for you too because with an ingredient list that includes unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut sugar, and coconut oil, it’s hard to argue that point, right?

And who can say no to a healthy chocolate carb to start their day?

Gluten Free Toasted Coconut Chocolate Biscuits

My next goal is to find a way to pair them with the 4 pounds of hand picked strawberries I came home with yesterday and sweat my butt off picking for 30 minutes in the 80 something degree, 5000% humidity morning only to find out the pre-picked baskets were the same price in the farm store afterwards because the strawberry chocolate combination never gets old.

I’m thinking chocolate strawberry shortcake biscuits….yummmm.

This recipe sounds delicious! Would coconut flour work as a substitute to gluten free flour?

Coconut flour is not usually a 1:1 substitution with any other flours so I'm not sure, you'd have to play around with it.

Gina, these look super delish and I just wanted to say how much I love your blog. I realize that the whole purpose of this particular recipe was about using gluten free flour blend but my pantry has no more room for another type of flour. I sooooo want to make these - would oat flour, whole wheat pastry or a combo with almond meal work as a substitution?

Thanks so much!

I'm thinking oat flour would be your best bet or a combo of that and whole wheat pastry. I wouldn't suggest almond meal as nut flours can be weird and usually aren't a 1-1 substitution. let me know how they turn out if you try!

I would love to make these! They're perfect for my family. I'll have to look for the CocoaVia chocolate - I'm not at all familiar with it!
