Experimenting with healthy food is hands down my favorite past time; right after holding baby animals and well, actually eating the food I experiment with.
I’m fairly new at baking with yeast. I usually just slap some healthy flours together, add some protein powder, definitely some peanut butter, throw it in the oven and call it a cookie. I’m trying to expand my horizons a bit so I picked up some yeast and was set on making big, fluffy, baked protein donuts but I quickly learned that coconut flour doesn’t work with yeast as well as whole wheat pastry flour. That’s okay, because these sweet biscuits are utterly soft and delicious!
- 3/4 c coconut flour (I used Better Body Foods)
- 3/4 c brown rice flour
- 1 package fast acting instant yeast
- 1 scoop protein powder (I used Gourmet Vanilla PEScience get 30% off using code PBCHOCO)
- 1 egg, whole
- 2 tbsp. vegan butter spread (I used Earth Balance)
- 1/2 c warm water
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract (I used Better Body Foods)
- 1 tsp. stevia
- 1/4 c dark chocolate chips (I used Lily's sugar free)
- 1 tsp. coconut oil (I used Better Body Foods)
- 1 tsp. vitafiber or sticky syrup (agave, honey, maple)
- 8g mini marshmallows
- 1/2 waffle cone crushed (can sub for crushed graham cracker)
- In a large mixing bowl stir together the yeast and warm water until completely dissolved and let sit for 10 minutes.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the flours, protein and stevia.
- Add the yeast to the flour mixture and stir together. Add the egg, vanilla and melted butter. Mix together until a dough forms.
- Kneed the dough for 1 minute and then let sit in a covered bowl for 1 hour.
- Pre-heat oven to 350f.
- Cut the dough into 8 equal sized pieces.
- Stuff the pieces with 2-3 mini marshmallows and then roll them into balls.
- Place the balls on a prepared baking sheet with parchment paper and bake for 9-10 minutes. Don't over cook or they will dry out.
- Once cooled, melt all chocolate frosting ingredients together and frost the biscuits.
- Top with remaining marshmallows and crushed waffle cone.
