Chia Microwave Biscuits (2)

Chia Microwave Biscuits (2)

Two Chia Biscuits shown.

Since I’ve cut most wheat out of my diet, I can no longer eat some of my older biscuit recipes that used Carbalose flour or Carbquick.  So I’ve been tinkering around with new ingredients.   In doing so, I’ve made a delicious 2-serving low-carb biscuit that is moist and light.  Chia seeds have many health benefits and they also bring moisture to a baked product.  The gel is great as a meatloaf additive as well, for moisture and as a bread replacement.

This biscuit falls somewhere between the texture of cake and your Granny’s biscuits.  The surface is crusty if you brown it in the broiler a bit.  I love the built-in portion control of individual or 2-serving recipes because then we don’t have any leftovers to be tempted to go back and eat later.  This is quick, easy, tasty!  It is not suitable until the highest (grains) rung of the OWL ladder (or Maintenance) of Atkins.  This recipe is not really suitable Primal-Paleo followers.
