Buckwheat Choc Pecan Biscuits – Gluten Free, Dairy Free & Egg Free

Meal type

Yesterday I remembered how much I used to love choc chip biscuits. It was one of the first recipes that I ever learnt how to make by myself and the first recipe that I decided to healthify. Since our family has been mostly egg free, thanks to our little Frankie’s allergy, I haven’t made my old faithful choc-chip biscuits. I don’t know what made me think about this yesterday but alas, I did. And so today I created a delicious gluten free, dairy free and egg free (hoorah) buckwheat choc pecan biscuit recipe that I am thrilled with. They tick all of the biscuit necessities. They’re delicious, crispy and don’t crumble (this last one is hard to achieve with egg free recipes, trust me). They were a total win. And I am now totally chuffed with my self.

When a recipe works first time, it makes my day.

Nut Allergies

If there is a nut allergy, you could absolutely make these without pecans. I mean, who doesn’t love chocolate biscuits anyway? The pecans are a delicious addition, but not essential. Another struggle I have had is baking without real butter. I find that real butter helps a bake to stick together and prevents crumbling to an extent. The process of adding the tapioca starch to the melted coconut oil mixture really helped with creating a nice firm biscuit.

Dairy Free Choc Chips

The choc bits I’ve used in this recipe are vegan (dairy free) and are sweetened with rapadura sugar, which is a more wholesome alternative to regular sugar. I sourced these from my local organic grocer.

When you add the tapioca/coconut oil mixture to the biscuit mix, it melts the chocolate which mixes all through the biscuits. If you want to make your more traditional choc chip biscuits, you could allow the tapioca/coconut oil mixture to cool slightly before mixing it through. Alternatively, you could add the choc bits at the end.

Buckwheat Flour

I use buckwheat flour a lot in my gluten free baking. Buckwheat flour is high in B vitamins and rutin. Rutin is a bioflavonoid and is actually more available in roasted buckwheat. Buckwheat, like quinoa, is a pseudo grain. So it’s actually a seed but has similar properties to a grain. It is a fantastic, gluten free alternative and is a highly nutritious swap for wheat.

If you love the sound of these Choc Pecan Biscuits you might like to try out some of my other buckwheat based recipes like my Vanilla Buckwheat Pancakes or my gluten free Quinoa Crumbed Chicken.

I hope you love these Choc Pecan Biscuits as much as I did! By the way, these biscuits are big time kid approved.
