Coconut Milk Drop Biscuits (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Cindy.

Ingredients:
½ cup brown rice flour
½ cup white rice flour
½ cup sweet rice flour
½ cup amaranth flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar (optional - amaranth flour is sweet)
1 can (13.5 oz) cold and solidified coconut milk - not low fat.

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 450F degrees.

Put all the dry ingredients in the bowl of a food processor run until all the dry ingredients are mixed. Open the food processor and add the coconut milk. Run the food processor just long enough to mix thoroughly. You might have to open it once to scrape down the sides. The dough should be airy. Drop by tablespoon full onto cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. Makes about 18 small biscuits.

I started making this in the winter and the coconut milk is always solid, with a little clear liquid in the bottom of the can. Im not sure how this would work with coconut milk that is liquid. If I was trying it with warmer, liquid coconut milk, I would add the coconut milk gradually through the feed tube while running the food processor.

You could try other flour types, but I think the sweet rice flour makes a big difference in the consistency.

These biscuits are really good heated up in a toaster oven.

I am brand new to the gluten free diet and have attempted bread..and failed. (I am currently waiting for my bread machine to arrive). I am desperate for some bread and this one looked easy enough. It was awesome! The flavor is delicious. Mine "puffed up" and are toasty on the outside and perfect in the middle. I am not sure if they were suppose to puff up, but they taste great and helped in my bread craving! (I did use Jules Bread mix though. I used 2 cups and 2 tsp of the flour, and added all the other ingredients you had; sugar, coconut milk). Thank you.

I still prefer steaming, but I wash my white rice throughly. I purchase California rice which has a lower level of arsenic. Moderation is key to most everything! ?

I eat pretty much grain free just fine, I eat fats instead. But on a side note I posted some specialty and grain free options as of late in the food alternative page where I list companies and food product alternatives. I honestly just welcomed bread back into my life, I found a company that makes grain free bread out of nut flours. Given you have to toast the dang bread to use it well but seems to work decently. Pasta there are carb free versions out there, and there are ones made with quinoa, buckwheat, or other grains, I even know one company that makes nut flour based ones. You can get these gluten-free options and avoid the rice. As to levels of arsenic they do test foods for these, and all should be safe, the trace amounts and the sheer amount you would have to eat to get effected is staggering, a bit of rice will not hurt you regardless if your concerned I know gluten-free watchdog does arsenic testing on products you could check and find the "safest ones" for your concerns.

I've forgotten them, just remember the good stuff. Weekends in Baja or Vegas or up Pacific highway to see the Redwoods and Frisco. Watching the sunrise at Mount Soledad and watching it drop into the Pacific in the evening. Carne Asada Burritos on Garnet* Solana beach ale* Gorgeous women entranced by my exotic accent, humboldt county weed, raves at the romper room, *1.99 are you out of your mind Denny Breakfasts, Christmas on the beach, *Beers in the gaslamp quarter. I need one of these * which by the power of my imagination have magically become gluten free AANNNYWAAY... Arsenic in rice. Yeah.

Oh, it definitely struck me as very odd! It also says "no significant increase in intraepithelial lymphocytes". That's their favorite word I guess! My blood work pre-biopsy also showed increase lymphocytes and my primary doctor said it usually means increased inflammation. Doing all the things I can now---filing a complaint, I've emailed my doctors to tell them I'm upset and don't think I received proper care, I'm in the process of trying to see a naturopath that diagnosed a friend of a friend w celiac. I'm going to see if i can get the other blood work done with them---and I've been gluten free for a week and a half!

There are plenty of negatives......?
