These delectable biscuits are flour and refined sugar free, not to mention paleo friendly. Now, we would not say any biscuit was healthy... but if something went close it would be this gluten free, paleo cookie delight!

This quick and easy gluten free recipe was modelled on some of the paleo versions we have seen of late. It is unlikely there was ever any biscuits in paleothic times but the base ingredients in the paleo lifestyle are great to adapt into a gluten free treat because those in paleothic times lived a gluten free lifestyle!

These biscuits are so quick to make you really need only set aside 10 minutes to prepare them plus they only need to bake for 8 minutes, it really is the epitome of simple and fast gluten free baking.
